Modified Pass-Throughs

Pass-through securities with principals and interest guaranteed by a U.S. Government agency. A pass-through security is backed by assets or debt; in a modified pass-through security, a government agency reduces the risk of default to the pass-through holder by guaranteeing payment. Ginnie Mae makes most of these guarantees, but Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae do as well.
