Fannie and Freddie historically have bought only certain kinds of mortgages that meet their underwriting standards, and such mortgages are called conforming mortgages. To qualify for purchase by Fannie or Freddie, a mortgage must not exceed a certain principal amount, must not have too great a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, and the mortgage payment must not be too great relative to the homebuyer’s income. Mortgages that do not meet these requirements are nonconforming mortgages. (For many years, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac purchased only conforming loans, but they expanded their activities to the subprime market in the second half of the 1990s in a small way, and soon grew to be major players in this area.

However, their methods are essentially different. Ginnie Mae guarantees payments on mortgages but does not own mortgages. In contrast, Fannie and Freddie buy mortgages directly. All three organizations have been quite important in creating MBS, but Fannie and Freddie typically own the mortgages that comprise the pools. From 1970 until 1983, Ginnie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Fannie Mae all issued similar pass-through securities. If we consider an entire pass-through security issuance, the total cash flows received by the pass-through security purchases match the total payments made by the home owners whose mortgages are held in the pool.

In addition, for a given CMO issuance, some of the bonds could have fixed yields, while others could have floating rates. The possibilities were limited only by the ingenuity of the issuing firms and the investment tastes of the public. Both proved to be virtually unbounded. CMOs could be issued with the cash flows from the mortgage pool providing the only source of value for the tranched securities. However, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac soon started using their high market standing to provide guarantees to back the securities in the CMO.
