U.S. regulators adopt new risk rules for securitization

U.S. regulators on Tuesday issued a rule requiring banks that sell loans to investors to keep part of the risk on their own books, a measure aimed at preventing the sloppy loans that sparked the 2007-09 credit crisis. The rule was mandated by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law. After years of debate over its parameters, the 553-page measure was adopted by three of the six agencies that need to sign off on it. More on Reuters here.
