Re-Performing Loan MBS Offerings

As part of its portfolio management strategy, Freddie Mac started pooling Reperforming Loans (RPLs) into fully guaranteed Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) in 2011. RPLs are single-family mortgage loans that were purchased out of the original MBS pool due to delinquency, modification, or foreclosure referral but are now performing.
