Securitizations and Variable Interest Entities
As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, we held investments in CMO trusts, which are variable interest entities ("VIEs"). We have consolidated certain of these CMO trusts in our consolidated financial statements where we have determined we are the primary beneficiary of the trusts. All of our CMO securities are backed by fixed or adjustable-rate Agency RMBS. Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guarantees the payment of interest and principal and acts as the trustee and administrator of their respective securitization trusts. Accordingly, we are not required to provide the beneficial interest holders of the CMO securities any financial or other support. Our maximum exposure to loss related to our involvement with CMO trusts is the fair value of the CMO securities and interest and principal-only securities held by us, less principal amounts guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
In connection with our consolidated CMO trusts, we recognized Agency securities with a total fair value of $0.8 billion and $1.0 billion as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and debt with a total fair value of $460 million and $595 million, respectively, in our accompanying consolidated balance sheets. As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, the Agency securities had an aggregate unpaid principal balance of $0.8 billion and $1.0 billion, respectively, and the debt had an aggregate unpaid principal balance of $452 million and $587 million, respectively. We re-measure our consolidated debt at fair value through earnings in gain (loss) on derivative instruments and other securities, net in our consolidated statements of comprehensive income. For fiscal years 2016, 2015 and 2014, we recorded a loss of $3 million, a gain of $16 million and a loss of $10 million, respectively, associated with our consolidated debt. Our involvement with the consolidated trusts is limited to the Agency securities transferred by us upon the formation of the trusts and the CMO securities subsequently held by us. There are no arrangements that could require us to provide financial support to the trusts.
As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, the fair value of our CMO securities and interest and principal-only securities was $1.1 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively, excluding the consolidated CMO trusts discussed above, or $1.5 billion and $1.8 billion, respectively, including the net asset value of our consolidated CMO trusts. Our maximum exposure to loss related to our CMO securities and interest and principal-only securities, including our consolidated CMO trusts, was $182 million and $238 million as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Note 4. Repurchase Agreements and Other Secured Borrowings
We pledge certain of our securities as collateral under our repurchase agreements with financial institutions and under our secured borrowing facility with the Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") of Des Moines. Interest rates on our borrowings are generally based on LIBOR plus or minus a margin and amounts available to be borrowed are dependent upon the fair value of the securities pledged as collateral, which fluctuates with changes in interest rates, type of security and liquidity conditions within the banking, mortgage finance and real estate industries. If the fair value of our pledged securities declines, lenders will typically require us to post additional collateral or pay down borrowings to re-establish agreed upon collateral requirements, referred to as "margin calls." Similarly, if the fair value of our pledged securities increases, lenders may release collateral back to us. As of December 31, 2016, we had met all margin call requirements. For additional information regarding our pledged assets, please refer to Note 6.
Repurchase Agreements
As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, we had $37.9 billion and $41.8 billion, respectively, of repurchase agreements outstanding. The terms and conditions of our repurchase agreements are typically negotiated on a transaction-by-transaction basis.
