``The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees the two government-controlled mortgage finance companies, announced the settlement Thursday. The agency had sued UBS and 17 other major banks over their sales to Fannie and Freddie of about $196 billion in mortgage securities that soured when the housing market collapsed in 2007.

UBS will pay about $415 million to Fannie and $470 million to Freddie.''
