Moreover, anyone interested inbetter understanding the Subprime Lending Crisis and how it evolved will be treated to an insightfulhistorical account offered in Mr. Nechemia’s new article published in China’s leading FinancialPublication.In his article, Mr. Nechemia argues that the rapid innovation in asset securitization technology is the rootcause of contemporary financial market development of the past three decades. Published by InternationalFinance Magazine (“IFM”), Mr. Nechemia observes that, “the failures in today’s financial markets can betraced to the creation and Frankenstein-like mangling and market-butchering of the financial productknown as Asset Securitization, or what the public at large has recently come to learn is Subprime Lendingthat triggered the global financial meltdown.”In his recently published article, Asset Securitization: Revolution, Evolution, Devolution. The Rise and Fallof the Most Important Financial Instrument in Banking, Mr. Nechemia traces the success of AssetSecuritization back to its introduction in the early 70s and how, “this financial instrument and the variouspermutations it morphed into during a more than 30-year period enabled the unprecedented growth ofcapital and financial markets in both the United States and abroad.” Page 1 of 6
    • Following the publication of two prior question- and-answer-style interviews, the first given by Mr.Nechemia for International Finance Magazine published in May 2008 in an article titled, Guard Againstthe Influence Brought by Subprime Landing Crisis, at which time Mr. Nechemia announced that he saw asystemic financial crisis brewing and warned that in the months to come the United States was likely toface a once-in-a-lifetime financial crisis, an oil shock, sharply declining consumer confidence and,ultimately, a deep recession. In that article he also foretold of homeowners defaulting on mortgages,trillions of dollars of mortgage-backed securities unraveling worldwide and the global financial systemshuddering to a halt. The second interview, a Cover Story published in March 2009, “At the Epicenter:Where the Financial System Meets the Real Economy,” Mr. Nechemia offers observations and insightfulcommentary regarding the critical financial issues as it relates to the world’s global financial crisis, itsimpact on China, recommended reforms and action steps, along with forecasts of the Chinese economy inthe year to come.International Finance Magazine is China’s only financial publication supervised by the China Council forthe Promotion of International Trade. Following the excellent reception and accuracy of his marketcommentary, the Magazine, which is devoted to national and international investment and financingmarkets, asked Mr. Nechemia to write a series of financial and investment-related articles. Says Mrs.Luyang Li, Editor-in-Chief, of International Finance Magazine. “Mr. Nechemia’s scholarly and accurateanalysis in his prior interviews were so insightful, we asked him if he would write a series of articles thatsheds light on the reasons that led to the current financial crisis in North America that has now developedinto a global economic meltdown.”“For this new article, Mr. Nechemia suggested he’d like to provide a thoughtful, technical paper for thecrisis starting with a historical overview of Asset Securitization, the financial instrument, according to himthat has been recognized by eminent academics as the most important engine of reform in our financialsystem.” Mr. Nechemia presents the case that Asset Securitization has emerged in recent times and isviewed as a revolution in the banking and financial services industry by industry practitioners.” says Mrs.Luyang Li. She adds, “we thought his concept for an article was not just timely, but fascinating and wouldbe appreciated by our highly educated readers.” Page 2 of 6
    • In his 3,000 plus-words article, Mr. Nechemia argues that among other things, the “Asset Securitizationproduct set new benchmark standards of innovation and productivity, credit enhancement and risk analysis,but in the end, left unchecked and to open market devices, is what he suggests, contributed greatly to theU.S. financial collapse and its tsunami like ripple effect throughout the world.”The article goes on to discuss that many measures are required to repair what has become a badly damagedinternational financial system and proven dysfunctional financial architecture. Moreover, Mr. Nechemiaprovides thoughtful solutions to resolve some of the critical issues necessary to begin mending our creditsystems that will foster healthy and productive financial systems, revitalizing and reenergizing productivitygoing forward. A potential remedy he offers can be replicated by adopting oversight and compliancepractices currently utilized by the United States Food and Drug Administration, among other solutions aswell.According to Editor-in-chief of International Financial Magazine Mrs. Luyang Li, “readers will find thisarticle, as others Mr. Nechemia has authored exclusively for our publication, interesting, fascinating,provocative and even useful to those who call investment banking their profession.”In the article’s concluding paragraph, Mr. Nechemia suggests the following: The introduction of Asset Securitization, and its evolution over three decades, has had a profound impact on consumers and financial institutions as an innovative product and no doubt, it will continue to remain so. In the light of recent events it is clear that more and better regulatory approaches must be instituted in order to ensure that the original model and some of its innovative iterations reconstitute to the original power and value they provided. In this manner, the markets will reset, consumers will benefit and Asset Securitization can regain its rightful perch as one of the most valuable products and financial instruments in banking history.The International Finance Magazine features the country’s senior government officials, prominent businessleaders and high-profile financiers in China, as well as the world.
