Why We Do It

Because it's in our DNA. Millions of families struggle to find safe, quality rental housing they can afford — and the need continues to grow.

We're not just financing rental housing; we're leading the way to a better future. We are committed to leading real change in the multifamily industry through intentional and focused efforts. Sustainability, affordability and equity are our driving passions.

By working with our lenders and partners, we're creating more affordable housing, leveling the playing field and strengthening communities across the nation.

How We Do It


Our dedicated research team fills the gaps in multifamily housing research. They provide fresh insights and a deep understanding of the nuances that make up the nation's affordable housing crisis — by conducting studies, interviews and more.

Our Offerings

Accomplishing our mission is what motivates us. Driven by a genuine desire to effect change, we confront persistent housing challenges through innovative thinking that helps expand access to housing in each area of financing. Read through these articles to learn how our offerings build a better housing finance system.

Multifamily Securities

Our securities offerings are critical to the success of fulfilling our mission of providing stability, affordability and liquidity to the multifamily housing industry. Securitization is our primary method of doing this: we pool loans we have purchased, securitize them, and sell the resulting certificates to investors. In turn, these sales are part of what enables us to continue purchasing loans, bringing our business model full circle.
