AGNC Investment Corp, founded in May 2008, is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that primarily invests in residential mortgage-backed securities (MBS) that are guaranteed by U.S. government-sponsored enterprises like Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or Ginnie Mae. This guarantee significantly reduces credit risk for the investments. AGNC operates as an internally managed REIT, focusing on leveraged investments in these Agency MBS, which include pass-through certificates, collateralized mortgage obligations, and “to-be-announced” securities. The company also engages in some non-agency investments to maintain flexibility in response to market shifts.


AGNC’s investment strategy leverages competitive funding, primarily through repurchase agreements, to enhance returns. Their portfolio management is highly dynamic, employing various risk management techniques, including hedging against interest rate and prepayment risks, to optimize investment performance and protect stockholder value. The company is committed to corporate responsibility and aims to have a positive impact on the economy and society, particularly through supporting American homeownership


AGNC Investment Corp has maintained a reliable monthly dividend since at least 2010, with a consistent history of payouts that underscores its commitment to providing stockholders with regular income. The company’s dividends have varied in amount over the years, reflecting adjustments to market conditions and investment performance. For example, in recent years, the monthly dividend rate has been around $0.12 per share, indicating a steady payout trend.
