KBRA Releases Q2 2018 U.S. Bank Compendium

August 1, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 1, 2018--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases the Q2 2018 U.S. Bank Compendium analyzing the results of U.S. banks with KBRA long-term ratings.

In this issue, KBRA examines the competitive lending landscape. Are heightened competitive pressures going to adversely impact profitability in future quarters? Does the current competitive dynamic extend beyond pricing? If so, are bankers’ efforts to “differentiate” loan bids beyond pricing concerning? Could this lead to credit concerns down the road?

The compendium includes Q2 2018 updates on all publicly traded U.S. banks in KBRA’s rated universe, focusing on key performance and credit metrics, along with averages of key ratios. KBRA notes that our rated universe generally continues to demonstrate strong core performance on de minimus credit losses and solid operating fundamentals.
