Freddie Mac Appoints U.S. Bank As Global Agent On New Bond Note Offering

Stocks in this article: USB

U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services will serve as global agent on Freddie Mac’s landmark $500 million unsecured bond offering which closed on July 26.

The new offering, known as Freddie Mac’s STACR SM (Structured Agency Credit Risk) debt notes is unique in that it allows private investors to purchase securities that are linked to a $22.5 billion reference pool of residential mortgage loans purchased by Freddie Mac. STACR represents a significant milestone for the mortgage industry as it serves as the first step in the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) strategic plan to create a vehicle for private investors to participate in the default risk of the loans held by Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE’s), like Freddie Mac.

“We look forward to expanding our relationship with Freddie Mac and our appointment to this landmark deal is a testament to U.S. Bank’s expertise and agility in delivering unique corporate trust services to the mortgage and asset-backed market,” said Bryan Calder, president of U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Freddie on this complex finance offering.”

Given the structure and strategic importance of the transaction, U.S. Bank created customized investor and collateral reporting methods to meet both the specific needs of Freddie Mac as well as investors of the STACR debt notes. In addition to creating the reporting structure, in its role as global agent, U.S. Bank will serve as paying agent and calculating agent for Freddie Mac.

“U.S. Bank is a valuable business partner to Freddie Mac who has shown the expertise to develop the type of customized solutions required for our first STACR transaction," said Kevin Palmer, vice president of Costing & Portfolio Management for Freddie Mac.

U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services is one of the premier providers of corporate trust services in the United States and Europe, serving private and public companies, government and tax-exempt entities, and financial services companies. The group operates a network of 48 domestic offices and international locations in London, England; and Dublin, Ireland.
