U.S. Consumer Credit Outlook

Wednesday, August 15 2018 | 2:00pm ET

Household debt sets a new record even with increasing macro risks due to tariff wars and resulting expectations of inflation. Auto balances continue to grow albeit at a slower rate due to worsening performance for this product. All other consumer loan balances are expected to grow at a stable or slightly slower rate due to some competing upside and downside risks such as a strong labor market but increasing interest rates. 

In this timely webinar, we will present recent developments and our outlook, including expected impact of tariff wars on consumer credit, and cover the profiles and geographies that contain the most risk and opportunity for lenders. 

Join Scott Hoyt and Deniz Tudor, as they discuss the current and anticipated trends in household credit conditions based on data from Equifax and forecasts from Moody's Analytics. Key topics include:

  • Effect of the economy on credit conditions
  • Shifting drivers of consumer spending
  • Analysis of individual lending lines


Scott Hoyt, PhD, is a Senior Director with Moody’s Analytics responsible for the firm’s consumer forecasts and analysis.
