Dublin, Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Credit Cards in a Post COVID World: Seven Takeaways for the Next Business Cycle" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This report focuses on the recovery of the credit card business and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The good thing about recessions is that they will end and move into the next economic cycle, which economists often call "the trough." The bad news is that no one knows when the COVID-19 downturn will level. If we use the Great Recession as an example, the recession will last a year and a half, almost half the time it took to get through the Great Depression of 1929-1933.
In this latest research report, "Credit Cards in a Post COVID World: Seven Takeaways for the Next Business Cycle", readers will review the learnings that we have now which should go into the business models of credit managers as they start thinking about what credit card businesses will look like when we exit the COVID-19 pandemic.
"COVID-19 made an abrupt appearance, and the credit card industry, which thrives in a healthy economy, must contend with record unemployment, diminished GDP, and a loss in consumer confidence," comments Brian Riley, Director, Credit Advisor and the author of the research note. Riley adds that "4Q20 and 1Q21 will likely be unprofitable for many credit card issuers as charge-offs peak."
Highlights of the research note include:
Once payment deferrals end, expect delinquency aging to skyrocket
Charge-offs beyond 6.54% will eliminate credit card industry profits
Credit card return on assets (ROA) will fall into negative territory in late 2020
Regulatory guardrails helped protect the industry; current expected credit loss (CECL) requirements and contingency planning proved their worth
Top banks, particularly those required to comply with stress testing and DFAST, were well prepared
Platform service providers played a significant role in providing options for the middle market.
