Freddie Mac says it will disclose performance data on a swath of single-family loans that it purchased over a 13-year period representing about 53 percent of Freddie Mac’s total mortgage acquisitions, or 15.7 million mortgages, from Jan. 1, 1999 to Dec. 31, 2011.

The move, directed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), helps pave the way for implementing risk-sharing arrangements with investors who purchase the company’s mortgage-backed securities. The effort is one of the latest aimed at reforming the mortgage finance system.
