Who we serve
  • We provide credit for owners of apartment buildings whose rents are generally affordable to those making 100% of Area Median Income (AMI) or less. For example, over 85% and 75% of units we financed during 2012 were affordable to those making 100% and 80%, respectively, of AMI.

  • Our Multifamily debt business has been profitable 10 of the last 11 years. Our one unprofitable year, a net loss of 1% of our book during 2009, was driven by a non-cash increase in loan loss allowance / credit reserves.
  • We expect this business to remain profitable for the foreseeable future as the credit outlook improves and we see the benefits of higher priced recent business.

  • Our credit losses have averaged 17 basis points (bps) per year over the last 5 years, peaking at 27 bps in 2010. Over the same period our gfee income averaged 43 bps, ending at 52 bps in 2012.
