Weighted Average Coupon (WAC) ARM Guarantor Execution

A competitive securities execution with lucrative options

Freddie Mac's Weighted Average Coupon (WAC) ARM Guarantor execution offers a competitive securities execution for your ARMs that adjust based on the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR)-index. Under the WAC ARM Guarantor execution, you receive Freddie Mac WAC ARM Participation Certificates (PCs) in exchange for a variety of SOFR- indexed ARMs. WAC ARM PCs provide investors with assets to match short-term liabilities, including those with floating rates. You can also take advantage of an optional delivery period to meet your individual needs. With only a $500,000 minimum commitment, we'll work with you to take advantage of either a swap and hold or a swap and sell solution that meets your investment needs.
