    Good point Mr a.

    If Japanese banks and such as HSBC with a far east presence are exposed, you can be damned sure that Chinese mainland banks had their hands in the same till when the draw snapped shut. BUT – in typical fashion they will hide the fact…not only to save face, but also the Chinese state that owns Chinese banks can shore up their finances behind the scenes…but will make the USA pay up one way or the other.

  • Bank of China is in there.

    If you mean japanese banks, they mostly stayed well away from CDOs. Goldman Sachs got off relatively unscathed probably because they bet on the market downturning quite heavily.
