This article focuses on reclassifying the loan markets as securities, which could turn out to be their biggest fear. Such an eventuality would rock the loan market to its foundations. Former Securities and Exchange Commission chief Harvey Pitt, believes the danger of such a reclassification is sufficiently real, though loan market officials believe that the overall market still remains exempt from being classified as securities. Much of the industry's exemption is due to perceptions about the market that are now decades old.
