It invests in agency and non-agency MBS consisting of residential MBS, commercial MBS (CMBS), and CMBS interest-only securities.

Non-Agency MBS have no such guaranty of payment. The company has qualified as a real estate investment trust for federal income tax purposes. It generally would not be subject to federal income taxes if it distributes at least 90% of its taxable income to its stockholders. The company was incorporated in 1987 and is headquartered in Glen Allen, Virginia.
Dynex Capital was founded in 1988 and the company’s first investment was in a joint venture with General Electric Capital Corporation to make loans to the multifamily housing industry. In the late 1990's and early 2000’s Dynex began investing in commercial mortgage backed securities and government sponsored enterprises such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Through the early 2000’s Dynex also began to invest in residential mortgage backed securities. In 2004, Dynex began to invest in non-agency mortgage backed securities.
