Traded in other countries:FHL.Germany
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp was chartered by Congress in 1970 with a public mission to stabilize the nation's residential mortgage markets and expand opportunities for home ownership and affordable rental housing. Freddie Mac's participation in the secondary mortgage market includes providing its credit guarantee for residential mortgages originated by mortgage lenders and investing in mortgage loans and mortgage-related securities. It operates in three segments namely, Single-family Guarantee, Investments, and Multifamily. Single-family Guarantee segment purchases single-family mortgage loans originated by the seller in the primary mortgage market. The Company uses mortgage securitization process to package the purchased mortgage loans into guaranteed mortgage-related securities. The Investments segment reflects results from the Company's investment, funding, and hedging activities. The Company invests in mortgage-related securities and single-family performing mortgage loans, which are funded by debt issuances and hedged using derivatives. The Multifamily segment reflects results from the Company's investment (both purchases and sales), securitization, and guarantee activities in multifamily mortgage loans and securities. The Company's customers are predominantly lenders in the primary mortgage market that originate mortgages for homeowners. These lenders include mortgage banking companies, commercial banks, savings banks, community banks, credit unions, HFAs, and savings and loan associations. Its principal competitors are Fannie Mae, the FHLBs, Ginnie Mae and other financial institutions that retain or securitize mortgages, such as commercial and investment banks, dealers, thrift institutions, and insurance companies.
