“Revolving debt — mostly credit card debt — increased by more than $16 billion in May. That’s the largest ever increase for May, and the largest percentage increase since 1995,” according to a recent article from American City Business Journals.
These findings match the perspective of FLOCK Specialty Finance. We have seen significant growth in consumer credit over the last 18 months. This growth, coupled with the increasing cost of credit, continues to build pressure on issuers to sell their growing inventory of charged-off debt.
The opportunity for debt buyers will significantly increase in the near future for multiple reasons:
- Strengthening economy
- Increase in labor force participation
- Significant growth in consumer credit
- The increasing cost of credit
- Pressure on insurers to sell inventory
