Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. global investment banking, securities and investment management firm has agreed to pay $5 billion to the US government, one of the largest regulatory penalties in its history, to compensate for the firm’s sale of mortgage bonds which resulted in the 2008 financial crisis. A government inquiry established how the firm sold bonds tied to residential mortgages, and banks deceived investors by misrepresenting the quality of underlying loans. Earlier, Bank of America, Chase and Citigroup agreed to a similar settlement.

There are lessons to learn here for the government, judiciary, market regulator, banks, and asset reconstruction companies (ARCs). The Indian economy was cocooned from the crisis in 2008, because of its strong banking system. The strength of banks emanated from government surety. But as we put in place a reform process in banking, there is a need to strengthen the system further. Parking the problem of non-performing assets (NPA) of banks in ARCs does not mean a solution has been found. ARCs’ traditional role is to turn underperforming assets profitable. It is a challenge fraught with pitfalls. Especially when the human resource managing them in India is not exposed to risks. The Securitization and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 was to help banks use it to recover NPAs. It also ensures that asset management companies will act as intermediaries between promoters and the trust. The scope of this must be widened to bring in more responsibility for both ARCs and banks.

Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Chase and Bank of America were supposed to do the same. But when they faltered, there was no mechanism of checks and balances in the system. That led to the crisis. What made the crisis worse for the investor was the long process of adjudication. In India, with growing distressed debts and securitization, they could be the future asset instruments for investors. There is a need for the government to watch closely the functioning of more than a dozen ARCs. It is also imperative, that a more robust legislation is put in place to protect investors. At the same time, there is a need for educating investors.
