The Single Security Initiative is a joint initiative of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises), under the direction of FHFA, to develop a common mortgage-backed security. The objective is to combine the separate TBA markets of the Enterprises – currently $2.4 Trillion for Fannie Mae and $1.1 Trillion for Freddie Mac – into one larger, more liquid market. The Single Security Initiative will go live on June 3, 2019. For a further overview of Single Security, check out the video.
The implementation of the Single Security Initiative is dependent on the Common Securitization Platform (CSP). The CSP is a technology and operational platform that is being developed by Common Securitization Solutions, LLC, a joint venture of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. CSP will perform many of the core back office operations for the Single Security, as well as most of the Enterprises’ current securitization functions for single-family mortgages, on behalf of the Enterprises.

In addition, we are providing a preliminary draft Offering Circular and a preliminary draft Master Trust Agreement for our Multiclass Certificates (REMIC and MACR) solely to help market participants adapt to and understand the impending changes to Freddie Mac’s Multiclass Certificates program in connection with the implementation of the Single Security Initiative, currently scheduled for June 3, 2019. The information contained in the preliminary draft Offering Circular and the preliminary draft Master Trust Agreement may be changed. We will not sell any securities pursuant to the preliminary draft Offering Circular and related preliminary draft Master Trust Agreement. The preliminary draft Offering Circular and related preliminary draft Master Trust Agreement are not an offer to sell the applicable securities and are not soliciting an offer to buy the applicable securities in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted. Before you invest in a particular offering, you should read the related Offering Circular for our Multiclass Certificates in conjunction with the Master Trust Agreement for our Multiclass Certificates, once they are available in final form, for more complete information about the applicable offering. Once available, you will be able to obtain for free the final Offering Circular and Master Trust Agreement on Freddie Mac's website, www.freddiemac.com/mbs.
