Rising Interest Rates


When Rates Rise, Cash-Rich May Win

Who wins when interest rates rise? Given the significant interest income that online brokers, custodian banks, and other financial services businesses earn on customer cash balances, they stand to profit in an environment of rising rates. The low rates of recent years have pressured the interest income stream for these financial businesses, but in typical rate environments, some can derive as much as 45% of their revenue from lending. And while potential homeowners and other borrowers might not be thrilled about it, an uptick in rates could mean quick cash flow for those who hold customer cash. <br><br><b>Rising Interest Rates in numbers: </b> </br>-Fourth quarter net interest income in 2018 rose an average of 8 percent from a year earlier, thanks to growth in interest-bearing assets and wider net interest margins among 5,406 FDIC-insured commercial banks and savings institutions.[1] See More
