Abstract

This study examines credit card banks, subprime lenders, and Internet primary banks. Although numerically these institutions make up a small share of the financial services industry, their unique products and technologies have attracted considerable attention. Insured institutions such as MBNA, Providian, and ETrade Bank are examples of limited-purpose banks specializing, respectively, in credit card services, subprime lending,and Internet banking.
