Facing the Storm: 2024’s Challenges for Credit Card Issuers

How Creditors Can Leverage Offset Rising Charge-offs and Delinquencies 

The coming year poses significant challenges for issuers of middle-market consumer credit cards, as highlighted in a recent American Banker article by Kate Fitzgerald. With an economy rebounding post-pandemic, many loans approved during the surge in spending and travel are now turning sour. Inflation continues to squeeze middle-market consumers, leading to a sharp spike in credit card charge-offs and delinquencies reaching three-year highs.  

Understanding the Landscape 

According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, serious credit card delinquencies are on the rise across all age groups, notably with younger borrowers. The situation is exacerbated by a recent wave of corporate layoffs and regulatory changes, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s proposed reduction in credit card late fees. These factors combine to create a challenging environment for credit card issuers, with expectations of write-offs peaking in the second half of the year. 

The American Banker article also points out that smaller banks and card issuers, which typically have a higher exposure to middle-income and lower-income consumers, will be the hardest hit. This situation calls for strategic solutions that can help manage the increasing number of charge-offs and non-performing loans.
