Credit card profits are back, but issuers must protect against the inevitable economic shift.
Mercator Advisory Group updates annual Credit Card Data Book with projections through 2023.
Author: Brian Riley Published on: February 19, 2020
“Credit card risk is fragile right now. Times have been good, but that “sooner or later” economic shift draws closer every month. Use Mercator’s 2020 Credit Card Data Book to see where sensitivities exist,” comments Brian Riley, Director, Credit Advisory Service, at Mercator Advisory Group, the author of this research report. “As an example, if there is a sudden shift, warning bells will ring at credit card issuers and they will quickly tighten credit to protect their balance sheets. As that happens, delinquency will start to climb. This ends up as high credit losses and increased non-interest expense.” Riley continues: “Right now, infrastructure and credit management are as important as portfolio growth. Risks are higher than ever, and issuers must ensure that their credit management policies and systems are ready to react. Overflow and diversion strategies, champion/challenger testing, and a battle-ready credit management team are the order of the day.”
