Because they come in single shares, even low-budget investors can diversify their REIT holdings.”According to WSJ, the proposed expansion of home-loan banks and REITs would run counter to the plan to privatize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.“While Fannie and Freddie buy mortgage loans and package them into securities, the Federal Home Loan Banks play a different role in housing finance: channeling money from global bond markets to thousands of institutions across the U.S.,” said WSJ.
