Macquarie Group expects a further decline in credit card lending and revenue over the medium-term, as consumers continue to embrace alternative payment methods. Credit cards and payments account for some $1.7bn of major Australian banks’ revenue, and Macquarie believes that up to 45 per cent of this could be at risk due to the growth of ‘buy now, pay later platforms’ and other payment solutions. German notes that banks are also facing growing competition from fintechs in the foreign exchange market.
