Goldman Sachs stresses that it decides who gets an Apple Card ' after Apple's snub that it was 'created by Apple, not a bank

Published by Business Insider on Thu, 16 Jan 2020

The slogan for Apple Card is "created by Apple, not a bank"but Goldman Sachs decides who gets one, shoulders the risk of lending billions, and collects unpaid debts."Whoever lays claim to the creation of the card, there's only one institution that's making underwriting decisions, and that's Goldman Sachs," the bank's finance chief said on Wednesday."The ultimate decision sits with us," he added. "We calibrate, manage our risk and collections in the context of that."View Business Insider's homepage for more stories.The Apple Card's slogan is "created by Apple, not a bank"but Goldman Sachs stressed this week that it decides who gets the credit card, shoulders the risk of lending billions to customers, and collects unpaid debts.RBC Capital Markets analyst Gerard Cassidy asked Goldman if, when a recession hits and default rates rise, the Apple Card's marketing could make it difficult for the bank to chase down debtors,given the potential damage to Apple's brand and reputation for customer service."Are you going to be hamstrung trying to collect those delinquencies because of the way it's been branded as an Apple Card, and it's not a bank'" he asked finance boss Stephen Scherr on Goldman's earnings call."Whoever lays claim to the creation of the card, there's only one institution that's making underwriting decisions, and that's Goldman Sachs," Scherr replied.Goldman worked with Apple to set goals for the card, and the iPhone maker is fully aware of how the bank makes its lending decisions, Scherr continued."But the ultimate decision sits with us," he said. "We calibrate, manage our risk and collections in the context of that."Perhaps recognizing the challenge of collecting, Goldman has been picky about who gets an Apple Card, favoring consumers with excellent credit scores who are least likely to default.

It also adopted the tech giant's signature font for cardholders' monthly statements andagainst its lawyers' advicepruned them of standard industry language, the newspaper said.The Apple Card's marketing also overlooks Amazon's hand in its creation."Building the credit-card platform that underpins Apple Card took a number of our engineers ... along with a very strong partnership with Apple, Mastercard and, of course, AWS," Goldman CEO David Solomon said at a conference in December, referring at the end to Amazon Web Services, the e-commerce titan's cloud-hosting business.Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: A big-money investor in juggernauts like Facebook and Netflix breaks down the '3rd wave' firms that are leading the next round of tech disruption
