Passing on the risk

Passing on the risk is a major difference between banks today and years ago. There is almost no risk of collapse due to a regional or local event. Even a local bank in New Orleans can weather that storm so to speak, because they didn’t hold the notes on all those homes. The “market” did. The risk was diversified and the bank remains intact. Brilliant is probably a good word for it. 😉
