Credit Card Profitability: Latin America

Countries covered: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela

Author: Lafferty Research

Publishing date: January 2013

In a global downturn that is having large-scale implications on credit card profitability around the world, Latin America represents one of the brightest spots and a major success story of recent years. What's more, growing economic prosperity, increasing consumption, and improved banking infrastructure means that the future is set to become even brighter.

As well as a comprehensive overview of the Latin America region as a whole, the report takes a detailed look at the region's top 11 credit cards markets to unmask the peculiar and individual characteristics of these various countries and answers significant questions, including:

  • What are the dynamics and key metrics behind credit card profitablity?
  • How and why are credit card revenue streams changing?
  • What are the effects of — and trends in — credit losses?
  • How do differing consumer attitudes to credit affect profitability?
  • How do the unique characteristics of the Latin America's cards markets affect the region's profit pools?

Credit Card Profitability: Latin America also provides you with critical data for each country, including:

  • card numbers by type, including credit, debit, prepaid
  • billed volume on credit cards (POS, ATM, total)
  • number of transactions on credit cards (POS, ATM, total)
  • average transaction value on credit cards (POS, ATM, total)
  • credit card profitability indicators (rollover rates, net credit losses, interchange fees)
  • Lafferty Group's unique credit card profit pool calculation
