FHFA Announces Results of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test

On Tuesday, August 7, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released a report providing the results of the annual Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests (DFAST) ​that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are required to conduct under the Dodd-Frank Act. The resulting portfolio and business projections are not expected outcomes, they are “what if” exercises based on DFAST. In the DFAST Severely Adverse scenario, the incremental Treasury draws are projected to be either $42.1 billion or $77.6 billion for the combined entities, depending on whether or not a valuation allowance must be made for the treatment of deferred tax assets. The remaining funding commitment from Treasury after these projected draws would be between $176.5 billion and $212 billion, depending on whether the Enterprises established valuation allowances on deferred tax assets.
