  two  of  the  banking law), and (4) executors, administrators, trustees,
  guardians and other fiduciaries, are  authorized  to  invest  in  bonds,

  limitations applicable to such investment, in bonds, notes and evidences
  of  indebtedness  which are secured by first mortgages or deeds of trust

  investment  shall  be  taken  into consideration for the purpose of such

  determining whether a mortgage or deed of trust is a first  mortgage  or
  deed of trust.
    (b) No person enumerated in subdivision (a) of this section may invest
  in  bonds,  notes  or  evidences of indebtedness secured by mortgages or
