However, as Nubank continues to grow, the deep dive also highlights the challenges it faces, such as high inflation, high-interest rates, and credit card defaults. These challenges could negatively impact Nubank's profitability in 2023 due to higher provisioning and funding costs, combined with a customer base of new-to-banking customers with less predictable credit quality.


To mitigate these risks, Nubank has started offering a payroll lending product and targeting high-earning customers to scale up its loan business while ensuring a more secure lending book.
