Ginnie Mae (GNMA)

In addition to traditional mortgages, Ginnie Mae’s expanding Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) securities program provides capital and liquidity for Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-insured reverse mortgages, an essential financial solution for a growing number of senior citizens. HECM loans can be pooled into HECM mortgage-backed securities (HMBS) within the Ginnie Mae II MBS program. They also can serve as collateral for Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduits (REMIC) backed by HMBS (H-REMICs).
