Japan Specific


Japan Housing Finance Agency (JHF), formerly the Government Housing Loan Corporation (GHLC), is an incorporated administrative agency, wholly owned by the Government. Earlier the main business of the GHLC was to provide direct housing loans to general public. However, the company abolished its business of direct financing to general public and changed its business model to focus on enhancing securitization.

JHF is the only Japanese Government owned Financial Institution to specialize in securitizing housing loans.
