Reference Rates Transition
As published in Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide Bulletin 2021-22, we will administer two separate COFI replacement indices: one applicable to Single-Family COFI-indexed ARMs and one applicable to Multifamily COFI-indexed floating rate loans and Freddie Mac's COFI-indexed Collateralized Mortgage Obligations (CMOs). The inaugural replacement index spreadsheets are available on the Enterprise 11th District COFI Replacement Indices web page.
Freddie Mac is working closely with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other industry participants on a thoughtful and deliberate process to replace or end the use of certain established reference rates, such as LIBOR, COFI and CMT, in its products, issuances and contracts.
