Managed receivables, including loans serviced for whole loan sale partners, were $19.1 billion on September 30, 2021, compared to $17.8 million in the prior-year period.
The company recorded a provision for finance receivable loss of $224 million, down from $232 million in the prior-year quarter. The decline was primarily driven by lower net charge-offs due to improved credit performance, aided by government stimulus payments.
During the quarter, the net charge-off ratio was 3.52%, down from 4.41% in the prior quarter and 5.20% in the prior-year quarter.
OneMain CEO Doug Shulman commented, “During the third quarter demand for our core lending products was strong, and we also initiated the roll-out of our BrightWay credit cards, which we expect will be the next driver of growth for our company.”
He further added, “With our leading lending products, a credit card that reinforces credit-building behaviours, and a suite of financial wellness solutions under Trim, we continue to execute on our vision of being the lender of choice for near-prime consumers.”
