  • Insurance companies are looking to tap 80% population who do not have long term care but the survey shows they will face hard time convincing consumers that they need it.

  • Banks are more focused on growth and have increased lending to sub-prime borrowers which caused delinquencies to rise.

    Clipped from marketwatch.com using the Trefis clipping tool:
    Capital One Financial Corp. (NYSE:COF) said credit card delinquencies rose again in September, though charge-offs continued declining.

    U.S. charge-offs--loans banks don't expect to be able to collect--have been on a mostly downward trend this year. The rate still sits near four-year lows. The U.S. credit card industry has had a slow recovery as losses from soured loans remain high.

    Net charge-offs in September dropped to 3.9% from 4.1% a month earlier at Capital One's U.S. card business. Internationally, the rate dropped to 5.65% from 6.21%, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Auto-finance charge-offs declined to 1.34% from 1.94%.

    At the company's U.S. credit-card business, 30-day delinquencies rose to 3.65% from 3.43% a month earlier and edged lower to 5.35% from 5.36% internationally. The auto-loan 30-day delinquency rate dropped to 6.79% from 7.08%.

    Capital One, which transformed itself from a credit card lender to a bank just before the financial crisis hit, has lately benefited from improving credit quality. In July, the company reported its second-quarter earnings rose 50%, beating analysts' estimates, as it booked lower loan loss provisions and saw a decline in net charge-offs.

  • The surging popularity of debit cards largely reflects the growing use of plastic by American consumers. Much of this growth in debit cards is fueled by small ticket transactions as cards begin to replace cash and check.

  • AIG’s D&O and E&O premiums account for a small portion of AIG’s overall diversified business. In fact, AIG's total U.S. D&O and E&O exposure from all sectors appears small at 11% of Domestic Brokerage Group P&C premiums and only 6% of AIG's total P&C premiums in year-to-date 2007. As a point of reference, AIG's entire Domestic General P&C business accounted for roughly 31% of both revenues and pre-tax income year-to-date 2007. Notably, AIG said on 9/11/07 at the Lehman Brothers Financial Services conference that it believes subprime D&O losses will be not be a significant issue for the company.
