Since 1938, Fannie Mae has provided a reliable source of affordable mortgage financing across the country. We support renters, homebuyers, and homeowners by creating solutions that expand access to affordable housing opportunities. We do not originate loans or lend money directly to borrowers. Instead, we acquire mortgage loans made by lenders and then issue guaranteed mortgage-backed securities (MBS) backed by those loans that attract investors. In 2022, Fannie Mae enabled the financing of approximately 2.6 million home purchases, refinancing, and rental units.
“One thing that every business continuity framework could use is a source of truth for data that we can go back to, something that's immune to corruption or tampering, that we know will always be pristine. AWS Backup Vault Lock provides that as an optional feature on AWS Backup Vault. Anything you put in that vault is going to be immutable for the duration of that retention period. You can't change it, Amazon can't change it.”
John Simon, Fellow Cloud Infrastructure, Fannie Mae
