Ginnie Mae Solicits Feedback on Stress Testing Framework

Ginnie Mae this week published a Request for Input on the analytical framework it is developing to assess Issuer financial performance under a variety of economic environments.

The RFI is part of the agency’s continuing efforts to monitor and support the sustainability of the Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities market. As outlined in the Ginnie Mae 2020 progress report, development of the analytical framework and the publication of the RFI aligns with additional policy steps the agency has undertaken to ensure strength and liquidity of Ginnie Mae’s counterparties.

“The RFI enables the agency to incorporate the views of a wide variety of stakeholders as we continue to refine the model, implement policy and evaluate potential risks to the U.S. housing finance system,” said Ginnie Mae Acting President Maren Kasper.

The RFI provides background information and analysis for consideration. All responses to the RFI are to be submitted to Ginnie Mae at no later than 3:00 p.m. ET on August 31.
