Q1 2021 Non-Interest Income 6 Mortgage banking fees increased due to an ~50% year-over-year increase in 1-to-4 family residential mortgage origination dollar volume, and the associated sale of ~60% of those into the secondary market Trust fees increased due to equity market improvement and organic growth in trust assets Other income increased due to higher loan swap-related income, which was primarily the result of $2.8 million of fair market value adjustments in the current period as compared to a negative $2.8 million adjustment last year Service charges on deposits were lower due to higher consumer deposits associated with the three rounds of stimulus to-date and lower general consumer spending, resulting in fewer eligible account fees Note: OREO = other real estate owned
