SALES FINANCE COMPANIES
SEPTEMBER

1963

Consumer instalment credit outstanding at sales finance companies
amounted to just over $13 billion at the end of September.
The total increased $167 million during the month, as $171 of nonautomotive consumer goods paper was acquired from other lenders. Personal
loans were up $50 million, a somewhat more than seasonal increase, but
holdings of retail passenger automotive paper tsere down by a like amount.
Sales finance companies acquired retail paper on fewer automobiles
in September than in August, and auto credit extensions were down $150
million.
Total extensions of consumer instalment, at just under $1 billion
for the month, were $139 million lower than in August because of the reduction
in auto lending.
Business credit continued to decline as last year's September
reduction of somewhat over $100 million in wholesale automotive paper was
repeated this year.
