Q&A With Freddie Mac’s Jorge Reis

As Rich Martinez mentions, Freddie Mac purchases home mortgages and apartment loans from lenders to ensure a steady supply of capital in the US mortgage marketplace. The company’s enterprise chief risk officer for investments and capital markets, Jorge Reis, stays on top of that.
It’s an understatement to suggest Reis has faced some daunting challenges. The senior vice president was with the firm from 1997 to 2008, moved to Itaú Unibanco Holding (São Paulo, Brazil) before returning to Freddie Mac in 2010. Reis holds a PhD from the University of Georgia.
