An analysis of the intermediation activity of financial services firms that encourages risky lending by the banking sector shows the increased risks taken by banks in their lending portfolio is a result of the innovations introduced by financial services firms which eases the sale of assets created by banks. But the risky behavior exhibited by banks is minimized by the need of the banks to balance its holdings with the potential destabilization of external shocks to the system. Banks are shown not to compromise their returns on assets.
