ABA Statement on FHFA Director Nomination

“We welcome the Biden administration’s nomination of Sandra Thompson to serve as director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Thompson's strong understanding of the primary and secondary mortgage markets, along with her extensive experience in financial regulatory issues at both the FHFA and FDIC, have served her well as acting director and would continue to do so in this critically important role. If confirmed, we would look forward to working with her to ensure a strong and robust housing market.”
