A new accounting provision changing the way U.S. banks reserve for loan losses will reduce the industry's capital by more than 10% and lead to greater volatility in earnings but might leave institutions better prepared for a downturn. Banks won't take the change in stride and are expected to respond by raising loan prices and slowing growth. Two colleagues from S&P Global Market Intelligence – Chris Vanderpool, a co-author of our bank projections, and Kiah Haslett, who reports on accounting issues – discuss the impact on the industry.
