March 29, 2006 — 11:00am EST (1 hour)
Brian O’Keeffe, Director, Credit Advisory Service


This Teleconference will discuss the current state of the US Small Business Credit Card industry. While the growth in consumer cards slows dramatically, small business cards provide issuers with a real opportunity for 20%+ growth, and issuers are attacking the space aggressively to win this business. In this teleconference, we will examine:


  • The spending habits of small businesses in an effort to size the potential market 
  • Trends in rewards product design: rewards, vs.. low rates
  • The evolving mix of rewards offers
  • The distribution channels for small business cards

We will also examine the different sources of growth in the small business market, as well as the leading small business card issuers.
