Prediction #1 - Off-Campus Merchants Expand Revenue Opportunities

 

In just four years (2010), 50% of all campus card systems will include at least several off-campus merchant applications; Off-campus "marketing partners" will surpass all banking relationships within three years, secondly only to "self-op" management of off-campus merchant applications.

Prediction #1 - Fewer Private Companies

 

In the shadow of campus card company takeovers, it is not inconceivable that at least one of the remaining firms might be sold in the future as retirement begins to loom on the horizon of owners. Wall Street reminds us on a daily basis that everything is for sale, and every  stockholder has their price.
