The Offered Notes represent unsecured general obligations of Fannie Mae, with payments subject to the credit and principal payment risks of the CAS 2018-C06 Reference Pool.

The aggregate CAS 2018-C06 Reference Pool consists of 105,386 residential mortgage loans with an aggregate cut-off balance of approximately $25.7 billion.

The pool is characterized by loans with LTV ratios that are greater than 60% and less than or equal to 80%. The pool’s weighted average (WA) LTV equals 75.4%. Approximately 4.0% of the loans possessed subordinate financing at origination, contributing to the pool’s WA combined loan-to-value (CLTV) ratio of 75.9%. The borrowers in Loan Group 1 have a WA original credit score of 741 and a WA debt-to-income (DTI) ratio of 37.4%.

Loan Group 2 consists of 43,325 mortgages with an aggregate cut-off date balance of approximately $10.5 billion.
