An interesting read about card issuers and ranks them by number of accounts and by volume processing.

Thanks. Good read. I just wonder how much the Costco switch boosted Citi and dropped Amex. 

Worlds second worst gardener.

Some interesting qualities you can determine by seeing which companies move up and down the different charts. 

 

Capital One for example: has lots of outstanding debts, and a large number of accounts, but grants substatially smaller lines of credit.

 

And American Express: with very little outstanding debt despite having lots of accounts with high limits.

One thing these articles miss is that AMEX is big on corporate travel and purchasing cards. Those will dwarf any typical consumer, thus the high transaction volume on relatively light card issuance.
