The year-over-year decline is primarily because of higher provision expense associated to continued development of the credit score card portfolio as well as some difficulty assets in the company's vitality portfolio and taxi medallion portfolio and $63 million of expenses relevant to a develop during the U.K. Payment Protection Insurance coverage purchaser refund reserve.

The company's return on average equity (ROE) was 8.59% in 3Q16 up from seven.64% during the sequential quarter, but down from 9.54% in the year-ago quarter to the very same motives noted over. Total revenue growth, while enhanced, stays difficult amid strong competition for card, automobile, and business loans.

COF's stability sheet has continued to broaden, developing 1.7% from your sequential quarter and 10% in the year-ago quarter.

Fitch believes this development during the card portfolio is due to COF's continued efforts in marketing both its QuickSilver and Venture cards, the two of which have comparatively good rewards applications. The expense of these rewards packages have partially offset a lot of the rewards to earnings through the growth mentioned above.

COF's deposit portfolio has grown a lot more modestly, expanding 2% in the sequential quarter and 6% from your year-ago quarter to $226 million as of 3Q16.

Relative to each the sequential and year-ago quarters, COF did supply constructive operating leverage and the company's efficiency ratio ticked down to 52.02% in 3Q16.

As mentioned provision cost elevated drastically improved relative on the year-ago quarter as a result of acquisition of the GE Healthcare portfolio, development in credit card and auto loan receivables, and some year-over-year deterioration the energy and taxi medallion portfolios.

COF's all round credit score excellent remains fantastic, together with the company's net charge-off (NCO) ratio ticking up modestly to 2.10% in 3Q16 which relative on the final 10 years is still low, although Fitch would note that COF's 30 day+ delinquency ratio is up nine basis points through the prior yr period, still strong compared to historical averages.

The up-tick was resulting from continued seasoning and growth within the domestic credit card and car loan portfolios. Fitch continues to think credit score high-quality in these portfolios is close to cyclical troughs, and would assume even further reversion in NCO ratios above a medium-term time horizon.

As mentioned, within the business portfolio each the vitality and taxi medallion portfolios remain problematic. Given the rise in energy costs in excess of the final a number of months, there continues to be some moderating of your deteriorating trends from the power portfolio.

The allowance for this portfolio is $111mn as of 3Q16, representing reserve coverage of 14.32% of loans held for investment, but only 1.7% on the complete allowance.

COF's Basel III Typical Equity Tier one (CET1) ratio beneath the standardized approach as from the finish of 3Q16 was ten.6% relative to ten.9% on the finish of 2Q16.
