WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Ginnie Mae today announced that it is enhancing data disclosure for its Platinum securities to provide investors with information that supports their sustainable investing decisions and solutions. The new environmental, social and governance (ESG) data provide investors with Platinum pool level aggregate information about the extent of UPB dollars that are in low- and moderate-Income areas.

Ginnie Mae Platinum securities are formed when investors combine multiple smaller dollar value, less-liquid MBS into a larger, single new Platinum security, which increases asset liquidity and operational efficiency while reducing administrative cost.

More details on this ESG enhancement can be found in the Bulletin update on this page​.

The low- and moderate-income areas used in formulating this new disclosure are defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The new disclosure aggregates to the pool level the number of loans, percent of loans, UPB dollars, and percent UPB dollars across low- and moderate-income areas applicable to the pool.
