2004 Annual Report

The complete report has been divided into four segments for easier online viewing and printing.

To our Shareholders:

I am pleased to write you this second annual letter as Chairman and CEO of Freddie Mac – the first covering developments under the company’s new leadership team.

What began as a triage year became a year of mounting progress. By the end of 2004, our steps forward had begun to build real momentum. While we still have many challenges, I feel good about where we are and where we’re going.

Our progress has come in three phases. First, we acted to repair the company’s accounting, reputation and key relationships. Second, we laid a strong organizational foundation for the future. This has meant putting in place a tested and talented senior management team and reorganizing the company to be more agile, control costs and move toward operating excellence. Third, we are taking specific steps to build on this foundation, fulfill our vital public mission and produce lasting value for our shareholders.

Freddie Mac’s employees are highly able, loyal and committed to our mission. The key is providing the right kind of leadership and sense of urgency. Read more from Richard Syron.
