Technical Notice

Disseminated Ginnie Mae MBS Transaction Information via SPDS

March 7, 2014

For Friday, March 7, 2014, transactions disseminated in Ginnie Mae-issued mortgage-backed securities traded in specified pool transactions (MBS transactions) do not reflect reference data element updates published by Ginnie Mae as of the end of the day from March 6, 2014 (specifically weighted average maturity, coupon and loan age, loan-to-value ratio and average loan size). Consequently, the dissemination ID (RDID) used for MBS transactions in Ginnie Mae securities will reflect the information prior to the end of day Thursday, March 6, 2014.

FINRA will make a file available to SPDS vendors on Monday, March 10, 2014, which will reflect the updated information.
