AGNC’s primary social impacts are related to our investment activity and our employees, both of which are critical to our success as an organization.
Our focus on Agency MBS investments drives the inherent social benefit of our business model – facilitating homeownership and, by extension, wealth creation and social mobility throughout the U.S.
Within our organization, we understand that employees who feel supported truly thrive, and we are fully committed to promoting and strengthening both their professional development and well-being through an engaging work environment and comprehensive benefits program.
We are proud to support the U.S. housing market, including historically underserved segments. By providing private capital 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 individuals and families purchase and refinance homes. The social benefits of homeownership as an accessible vehicle for individual and generational wealth creation while acting as a stabilizing agent for communities across the country are well-documented.
Human Capital management
Our success as a company ultimately depends on the strength, wellness, and dedication of our workforce. We strive to create a workplace that is respectful and inclusive and provide our highly skilled employees an engaging, rewarding, and supportive atmosphere in which to grow professionally and contribute.
