    hedge funds and credit unions, had been invited to dip into the Term
    Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility, or TALF, to borrow some of the
    $200 billion fund set by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The chief reason there’s been zero interest in TALF so far, according to industry analysts, economists and brokers, is that there hasn’t been enough time to put complicated deals together. Indeed, it was only in May that the Fed announced that commercial mortgages would be eligible for TALF money, and a month wasn’t long enough for lenders to market their assets to willing buyers, they say. … [more]
