Every year it seems that sub-prime auto loans are on the rise, and as such, the potential for delinquencies significantly increases. Many deep sub-prime customers are a single life event away (job loss, medical issue) from entering default status.

In this article, Denis Brosnan and Steve Garcia discuss rising delinquencies on auto loans and provide strategies and tactics to help lenders better prepare for increased default rates and significantly reduce losses.
