Including residential and multifamily activity, issuance of Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities during September came to $35.749 billion, according to monthly operational data from the Washington-based firm.

Securitizations on behalf of the Government National Mortgage Association, as it is formally known, retreated from $38.872 trillion the preceding month and dropped from $41.580 billion a year previous.
