To see how securitization fits in with other financial alternatives such as unsecuritized bank loans and bond issues, it is useful to start with the observation that securitization actually involves duplication of transactions costs. Indeed, to produce a one dollar CDO, a bank must first incur an intermediation cost by extending a loan to a firm. In order to securitize that loan, the bank must incur again issuing costs that are comparable to bond issuing costs. Given this duplication in costs, one might ask how this hybrid form of financing could ever dominate both full (unsecuritized) bank lending and direct bond financing?

Decoupling the Banking Sector and Public Finances As noted above, an important added benefit of the existence of a bond market in an EME is that it shields bond-financed firms from government debt default crises. In addition, by shifting government debt away from banks and into the hands of bond holders, the creation of a bond market also makes possible the decoupling of banking from public finances. Namely, funding of the Treasury through the bond market makes possible the removal of government debt from the balance sheet of banks and thus reduces the exposure of banks to government debt default crises.
