The article discusses the role real estate investment trusts (REITs) may play in the resurgence of mortgage-backed securities. Prior to the economic crisis banks such as Citigroup Inc. would securitize nonconforming loans but due to changes in accounting rules banks must keep securitized loans on the balance sheets. The capital requirements make securitization a less attractive option for banks. According to the article REITs do not have the same capital requirements as the banks.
