Skip to comments.Report: Managers at Fannie, Freddie earned $200K
Posted on 12/10/2012 10:52:07 AM PST by massmike
A government report finds median pay for nearly 2,000 senior managers at government-controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac exceeded $200,000 last year.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees the two mortgage giants, also did an inadequate job monitoring pay, according to the report released Monday from the inspector general for the FHFA.
The median figure means that half the managers received salaries above $200,000 and half received less.
Compensation for senior managers at the companies cost about $455 million in 2011, according to the report.
Taxpayers so far have paid roughly $170 billion to rescue Fannie and Freddie, which suffered huge losses from risky mortgages during the 2008 financial crisis.

Max Bialystock: Assume away!
