Interest Rate Gravity: How Rates (not Coronavirus) Defined Lending in 2020


Interest Rates in all shapes and forms take center stage in this webinar. With rates at all-time lows and unemployment at all-time highs, the problem everyone in the financial services space has been dealing with is how borrowers and competitors have shifted their behaviors and strategies to adjust to this new normal. As Warren Buffett once said: “Interest rates are to asset prices what gravity is to the apple. When there are low interest rates, there is a very low gravitational pull on asset prices.” How have rate movements by the Fed and financial institutions driven changes in the value placed on lending both from a borrower’s and lender’s point of view? 

Join our very own Princeton economist, Rene Segura, as he guides us through a year-in-rateview as we re-visit industry rates across Auto, Home Equity, Mortgage, and Personal Loans to help answer how borrowers (and lenders) are shifting behaviors in this environment; and what signs that may give us for what’s to come in 2021.
