The average credit card interest rate is 17.3%.

The average credit card debt per household is $8,701. 

Averages aren't the right way to look at this market.

"While superprime consumers own 59% of all credit card accounts and incur 21% of all late fees, deep subprime consumers own just 6% of credit card accounts yet incur 24% of all late fees." 

There's almost certainly more than one neobank/bank likely to say: "Your profit margin on these credit cards is my opportunity."

Fintech in 2020 seems destined to be more about rebundling than unbundling. Cross-selling will be rampant and better software the differentiator.
