PayPal CEO sees 'good net positive impact' to biz from Trump administration

PayPal Holdings Inc. President and CEO Daniel Schulman said his company is focused on staying aligned with regulators' expectations in a new U.S. regulatory environment following the change in administration.

During a Jan. 26 earnings call, Schulman said PayPal is "investing a tremendous amount of resources" in platform development and human resources to maintain compliance as the environment changes.

"That's not just here in the U.S.; it's obviously across the world," he added.

Regarding the Dodd-Frank Act, Schulman said the company feels the Durbin amendment, which limits the amount of debit card interchange fees that banks can charge merchants, is not likely to be overturned.

"This is not a lightning-rod issue for Democrats or Republicans, and so we think it is very unlikely given everything else that's going on that Durbin is overturned," he added.

However, if it were overturned, PayPal could work through the impact since a large part of its business is outside of the U.S., Schulman said. Much of its business being overseas also relates to potential new tax policy, but PayPal could see a "small net benefit" from tax changes. Repatriating offshore funds might "make a big difference" in PayPal's capital allocation strategy and could be a "big net positive," the CEO added.

In terms of protectionism, a large portion of PayPal's cross-border trade occurs outside of the U.S., thus it would not be impacted by any regulatory changes.

Schulman also considers the rising interest rate environment a net benefit to the payment processor's revenue and net income.

"All in, there's likely a good net positive impact to our business based on the change in the administration, but again, it's very early days," he said.
