Investment Activity

We are proud to support the U.S. housing market and historically underserved portions of the U.S. housing market. By providing private capital to the housing market through our investments in residential mortgages, including mortgages that are typically disfavored by loan originators in today’s market, we play a meaningful role in helping Americans purchase homes for their families. The social benefits of homeownership are well-documented, and U.S. housing policy has traditionally sought to increase homeownership. Homeownership has historically been viewed as an accessible vehicle for individual wealth creation, and increased homeownership within communities has long been considered a stabilizing agent, as homeowners are typically more engaged in their local communities as a result of their significant personal investment in the community through their homeownership. A recent domestic public policy goal has been to increase the role of private capital in the U.S. housing market, and AGNC is poised to continue to play a large and important role in any domestic housing reform initiative. We are confident that private capital will remain a pillar of the U.S. housing market and, in turn, the broader U.S. economy.
