Over the five years to 2017, operators in the Regional Bank industry have benefited from macroeconomic growth stemming from increased consumer confidence. Consumers have gained renewed confidence in their long-term financial stability. This has lead consumers to increase their debt levels. Furthermore, increased economic activity as a result has given the Federal Reserve the confidence it has needed to increase the Federal Funds Rate (FFR) four times during the period, from its recessionary lows. As the FFR has increased, interest rates in general have risen to the benefit of Regional Banks who have lent to consumers at higher interest rates. Over the five years to 2022, the Regional Banks industry is expected to continue benefiting from similar trends that led it to grow during the prior period. The Federal Reserve is expected to continue its gradual process of interest rate normalization through increasing the FFR over the five years to 2022. This process will lead interest rates on mortgages and other debt products provided by Regional Banks to continue to increase during the period.
Depository institutions in this industry have assets from $50.0 billion to $500.0 billion and provide services that include deposits, loans, leases, mortgages and credit cards, among others. Furthermore, regional banks do not have to be limited to operation in one state.
