Italy Retail Banking: Opportunities and Risks to 2023


Italy’s total loan balances outstanding (including credit card balances, personal loan balances, and residential mortgage balances outstanding) recorded a marginal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.1% during 2014-18 to reach €714.3bn (8.2bn). Credit card balances outstanding was the fastest-growing credit segment during the review period. From 2018 onwards, Italy started observing a decelerating economic growth, primarily due to political instability and low levels of investment, making it one of the slowest-growing countries in Europe. Furthermore, Italy is expected to endure continued double-digit unemployment rates, stagnant gross household disposable income, and rising borrowing costs. The debt-averse nature of Italians is also anticipated to prevent the magnitude of overall household debt from rapidly increasing. Consequently, we anticipate the total loan balances outstanding to grow at a CAGR of 1.4% over 2019-23.

Italy’s gross household savings rate declined from 10.4% in 2014 to 8.9% in 2018. Coupled with declining deposit interest rates, this led to a slow growth in Italian retail deposit balances. The trend is anticipated to continue over the coming years, with the retail deposit market forecast to record a CAGR of 1.0% over 2019-23 to reach €1.4tn (.6tn).
