KBRA Releases Q2 2018 U.S. Bank Compendium


Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases the Q2 2018 U.S. Bank
Compendium analyzing the results of U.S. banks with KBRA long-term

  • 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.
