Discover Financial Services engages in direct consumer banking services, taking deposits and offering credit card, student, residential mortgage, and other loans to its customers. The firm also operates the Discover, Pulse, and Diners Club networks. The majority of transactions processed by the firm are of the closed-loop variety, in which Discover issues cards to customers as well as maintains direct relationships with merchants. However, the company has opened the network to third-party issuers and acquirers in recent years.
