Global Credit Cards Index
Credit cards are one of the most profitable product lines in retail banking, having survived the impact of the global financial crisis. Just as credit cardholders are designated as 'revolvers' or 'transactors' depending on their repayment habits, credit card markets can be identified by their specific characteristics. Markets with higher rollover rates will generate greater interest revenue for issuers but may have higher rates of credit losses. In markets with low rollover rates but higher merchant service charges, revenue is driven by transaction volume. The Global Credit Cards Index reveals the dynamics that drive credit card revenue in individual credit card markets.
