Covered in this report
This report examines loans and other forms of credit in Northern Irealnd and Republic of Ireland. It analyses the main factors determining supply and demand for loans and other credit products. Drawing on exclusive consumer data, it analyses levels of ownership among consumers of loans and other credit products, the amount owed on these products, reasons for taking out past loans and reasons for taking out future loans.
What you need to know
While demand for credit has increased in tandem with economic growth, rising employment and generally strong consumer confidence in both Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, the levels of borrowing are nowhere near what they were during the pre-recession, economic boom years.
This is due both to a broadly responsible attitude towards borrowing among consumers – with most borrowing being for sensible, pragmatic reasons – and to the more cautious attitude towards lending among lenders. In addition, there is a brooding anxiety among consumers with respect to what the short-to-medium-term future holds, primarily on account of the myriad uncertainties surrounding Brexit.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Brian O'Connor, a leading analyst in the Financial Services sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
While both Irish economies have returned to growth following the severe downturn of a decade ago, consumers have not developed anything like the same appetite for borrowing that characterised the last economic boom. Albeit with some exceptions, the attitude towards borrowing is broadly responsible and measured.
