Former FDIC Chairman William Isaac to Present New Paper on Investors Unite Teleconference on Wednesday, April 1 at 2:00 p.m. EST

Isaac Says Fannie & Freddie Sweep by Government Flies in the Face of Law and Could Undermine Future Resolution Cases

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, April 1 at 2:00 p.m. EST, William Isaac, former Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), will release a sharp critique of the federal government’s 2012 decision to sweep all of the profits of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the Treasury.

In the paper Isaac details how the amended conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has deprived the government sponsored enterprises (GSE) of their ability to rebuild capital and has put taxpayers at risk of being asked to fund another rescue of the mortgage finance giants.

Isaac will also explain how the government’s abrupt  change to the terms of the 2008 Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) sets a bad precedent because vibrant private capital markets depend on confidence that the government can be counted on to adhere to the rule of law.   

Investors Unite Executive Director Tim Pagliara will host the media teleconference and Isaac will present his new analysis and will be available for questions from the media. 

To join the teleconference, please RSVP to [email protected]. Those who RSVP will receive an advance copy of the paper ahead of the call.
