Bruce Berkowitz Comments on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
When we initiated the Fund’s investments in Fannie Mae (FNMA) (4.5%) and Freddie Mac (FMCC) (3.5%), conventional wisdom was that the companies would be liquidated. We disagreed. Our investment was predicated on a simple thesis: there are no substitutes. Fannie and Freddie provide services that are absolutely essential to the American way of life.
