Great piece. Thanks for posting that
Ajay,Just wanted to ask you about the interest in covered bonds in India. In Europe Banks originate mortgages by issuing covered bonds to Investors. It is a $3 trillion market in Europe. In the U.S. the Fed is keen to replace Mortgage Backed seucrities with covered bonds. Here is the speech by Bernanke at the mortage securitization conference. This means that Banks will retain the credit risk of the mortgageloans on their balance sheet unlike the current "originate to distribute" model where banks securitize the mortages and have no incentive to focus on credit risk. http://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/speech/bernanke20081031a.htm
