2007 Annual Report

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

To our Stockholders:

In 2007, our sector suffered the most severe housing correction since the Great Depression. In my 35 years as an economist, central banker, regulator and businessman, I have never witnessed a situation quite like this one – in which a housing bubble has played such a central role in bringing the world's largest economy to the brink of recession.

Freddie Mac's financial results last year were acutely affected by the extraordinary downturn in housing; later in this letter I will discuss them with you fully. But before detailing our performance, it's worth taking a closer look at how and why the housing finance environment became so challenging. If you'll bear with me, I'd like to describe what we've observed, what we’ve been doing about it, and what we think it means. Read more from Richard Syron.
