Episode 8: The State of the Financial Services Industry and Thoughts on Economic Uncertainty

TransUnion’s Jason Laky (Executive VP of Financial Services) joins this month’s episode to discuss the state of the financial services industry — now that we’re just over halfway through 2022.

Craig and Josh inquire about consumer credit health, which Jason says is in very good shape despite a turbulent economy. Jason looks back on some industry predictions he made earlier in the year, including those regarding auto and mortgage markets, and supply and demand of consumer credit cards. Then, Craig and Josh open the floor to discuss risks and opportunities for lenders across various financial products; and Jason discusses the likelihood of a recession.

Plus, Craig quizzes Jason on Dallas Cowboys trivia and international hockey standings; Jason shares his expert recommendation of the most underrated city in Europe; and explains how he’s teaching his college-aged kids about the stock market.
