“We continue to execute well and posted solid performance in Q4,” said Chairman and CEO Bruce Van Saun. “Our balance sheet is very strong, as we bolstered CET1 to 10.6%, lowered our LDR to 82%, enhanced our liquidity profile, which now exceeds Category 1 bank LCR requirements, and reduced FHLB advances to $3.8 billion. We are seeing less pressure on deposit costs and NIM, fees are beginning to rebound, expenses remain well controlled, and credit costs are as expected. Key strategic initiatives like the Private Bank, NYC Metro, TOP 9 and Non-Core are all on track, positioning us well for medium-term growth and enhanced returns. I would like to thank our colleague base for their hard work and dedication in serving our customers well and building a great bank.”
