Ginnie Mae

At Ginnie Mae, we help make affordable housing a reality for millions of low- and moderate-income households across America by channeling global capital into the nation's housing markets. Specifically, the Ginnie Mae guaranty allows mortgage lenders to obtain a better price for their mortgage loans in the secondary mortgage market. The lenders can then use the proceeds to fund new mortgage loans available. Without that liquidity, lenders would be forced to keep all loans in their own portfolio, meaning they would not have adequate capital to make new loans.

Unlike the GSEs, Ginnie Mae is profitable. We do not buy or sell loans or issue mortgage-backed securities (MBS). Therefore, our balance sheet doesn't use derivatives to hedge or carry long term debt.
