The 2020 Credit Card Data Book - Key Industry Metrics to Watch - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "The 2020 Credit Card Data Book: Good Times Roll a Bit Longer" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Unemployment and inflation were low, interest margins were at a peak, collection results were favorable, and total open accounts grew slightly. According to Mercator Advisory Group's new report, The 2020 Credit Card Data Book: Good Times Roll a Bit Longer, 2020 will likely be slightly better, and more profitable, assuming the economic tides do not turn.

Credit card risk is fragile right now. Times have been good, but that sooner or later economic shift draws closer every month. Use the 2020 Credit Card Data Book to see where sensitivities exist, comments Brian Riley, Director, Credit Advisory Service, 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.
