The offering is a credit risk sharing transaction with a total note offering of $1.84 billion.

KBRA has assigned preliminary ratings to 44 classes of Freddie Mac Structured Agency Credit Risk (STACR) REMIC 2022-DNA3 Notes, Freddie Mac STACR REMIC Trust 2022-DNA3 (STACR 2022-DNA3), a credit risk-sharing transaction with a total note offering of $1.84 billion. 

STACR 2022-DNA3 features loans with loan-to-value ratios greater than 60%, but less than or equal to 80%. The offered notes represent obligations of the STACR 2022-DNA3 Trust in a credit-linked note structure governed by a credit protection agreement between the trust and Freddie Mac, with payments subject to the credit and principal payment risks of the STACR 2022-DNA3 Reference Pool.

The STACR 2022-DNA3 Reference Pool consists of 140,950 residential mortgage loans with an outstanding principal balance of approximately $42.9 billion as of the cut-off date. The reference obligations are fully documented, fully amortizing, primarily 30-year fixed-rate mortgages of prime quality. The borrowers in the STACR 2022-DNA3 Reference Pool have a non-zero weighted average (NZWA) original credit score of 747, and a NZWA debt-to-income ratio of 35.2%.
