Business Description

Industry: Credit Services » Credit Services
Compare:V, MA, TCAP, DFS, COF » details
Traded in other countries:A35.Germany
Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corp is a stockholder-owned, federally chartered instrumentality of the United States. It was originally created by the United States Congress to establish a secondary market for agricultural real estate and rural housing mortgage loans. This secondary market was designed to increase the availability of long-term credit at stable interest rates to America's rural communities, farmers, ranchers and rural homeowners and to provide those borrowers with the benefits of capital markets pricing and product innovation. In May 2008, Congress expanded Farmer Mac's charter to authorize the Company to purchase, and to guarantee securities backed by, loans made by cooperative lenders to finance electrification and telecommunications systems in rural areas. The Company provides liquidity and lending capacity to agricultural and rural utilities lenders by: purchasing eligible loans directly from lenders; guaranteeing securities representing interests in, or secured by, pools of eligible loans; and issuing long-term standby purchase commitments for eligible loans. It conducts these activities through three programs-Farmer Mac I, Farmer Mac II and Rural Utilities. Under the Farmer Mac I program, the Company purchases or commits to purchase mortgage loans secured by first liens on agricultural real estate. It also guarantees securities representing interests in or obligations backed by pools of eligible mortgage loans. The securities guaranteed by Farmer Mac under the Farmer Mac I program are referred to as 'Farmer Mac I Guaranteed Securities.' Under the Farmer Mac II program, the Company purchases the portions of loans guaranteed by the United States Department of Agriculture according to the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act and guarantees securities backed by those USDA-guaranteed portions. Farmer Mac's Rural Utilities program, which is separate from the Farmer Mac I and Farmer Mac II programs, was initiated during second quarter 2008 after Congress expanded the Company's authorized secondary market activities to include rural utilities loans. Farmer Mac's activities under this program would be similar to those conducted under the Farmer Mac I program-loan purchases, guarantees of securities and issuance of LTSPCs-with respect to eligible rural utilities loans. Farmer Mac I Guaranteed Securities, Farmer Mac II Guaranteed Securities and Farmer Mac Guaranteed Securities - Rural Utilities are referred to as 'Farmer Mac Guaranteed Securities.' Farmer Mac securitizes both loans eligible under its three programs and general obligations of lenders secured by pools of eligible loans, and then guarantees the timely payment of main and interest on the resulting Farmer Mac Guaranteed Securities. AgVantage(r) is a registered trademark of Farmer Mac that is used to designate its guarantees of securities that are related to general obligations of issuers that are secured by pools of eligible loans.
