Hi, good afternoon, everybody.

Greg Garrabrants

David. Hey,

Andy Micheletti

Hi.

David Feaster

just I of mean kind to have seen just there. wanted get I you pulse specialty nice the CRE growth I a that. start on of

given your and segments segment? on even the you underwriting the just tightened the uncertainty? in seeing pipeline comfort standards just Have and curious Just thoughts you opportunity production what markets and any and yields are with new that segment, this

Greg Garrabrants

Yes.

from focusing a category residential. perspective, clearly, So on we’re

that industrial are multifamily, as well. we’re So and means on we focusing seeing some

cold So feel warehouses, all last-mile we multifamily, categories about. good storage, those are

for among that obviously, there’s not in of those lot that, projects like – appetite a think, started but I most are folks segments. limited being there that is hotels, are also things

perspective the feel I and where think geography markets on perspective, about dynamic. from we city focus So from good a we’re to continuing a

You some in recently did Nashville. things

too. We’re still different in in a perspective we’re And to credit from the in there. to continue that we’re are good doing positions ensure markets we before things that

So The usually there’s are quite trade-offs sponsors that are well variety a made. capitalized. different of

on stated average as around loans. And on so the call, those – we continue to we’re be a at we value very to XX% loan

would get partners order into But have be of because ever those that any surprise it to losses. is would I – deeply our touched I deeply, think think loans the possible us digging projects loan they those be if did, And severity really for very something. I to So step need that be value low had the if in to you a any as it forward, would to move in may fund by there. sometimes be

think possible. I that’s

few partners places themselves cases it. like the But are the to loans they more look there then things are have and things a wherewithal capacity and And having finding they’re the – good. to and we’re that almost and fund in think that. do some than some step budgets through. But most in pretty all working I and willingness got interest reserves, true-up

really. good, pretty look things So

David Feaster

securities how I forward? see good I early just there, in to cross-sell accounts on? business, the color. started into growth do of pretty think That’s guys offerings just nice some how on guess you going Okay. then the some the you then had about significant the growth. have the And other guess been is some deposit product And growth

Greg Garrabrants

make happen. are in and are we enable the where technology to really We Yes. on that right working a now stage

will long-term you give quarter convert company our a fiscal where in quarter year. Axos of are to the clearing there, calendar to Invest third we the first sense So of plan our in of this

operates into the combining is a from software at And beginning account calendar our then single respect opening point them step with customer look around integration bank to and account to accounts fiscal the quarter that securities with our right technology So customer for of introducing sometime a then of correspondents allow integrate and that individuals in their one XXXX. with we’ll or banking both we at a of And second is fourth testing a automation the provided broker, when that. a have our or their of cross-sell to using quarter technological going on that opening to customers now our correspondents, the third direct to with is side can certain that then in functionality functionality process retail so a the doing account features they’re and application our that be party what be open side. are features their will and concurrently banking next securities we broker-dealers the communicate access

that of happen. all So, has to

of have products. We all these different

So it’s the additions integrations it to and platform. the seamless about the make really across

have a to rates expect $XXX important – the low, funding that, cost of half – it be say, So deposit think now, growth. to decade component seem with our that’s but next, million I low-cost and let doesn’t deposit and up is grow the of to like right us it X obviously, cost much deposits, really a over that be dramatically we to getting able

rates, and a pretty ways technology a technology in of So perspective integrated it their that grow industry-wide But because product an income to engaging have business we continue show to it are technology, and there. think positive got we’re deploying But that’s that’s we it’s issue. really we win really long-term broker-dealers here. clients. need we we to are for great on and RIAs we that way in think these business, it both a introducing have our a and end do makes partner strategy They a a low deposit that with net and to in Obviously, lot something of going difficult invest there. and

David Feaster

on am just And would I helpful. of interested? be what curious easier transactions then that’s you through to scale adding or product gaps M&A of any rather it it’s M&A just might following more mean more than I of that Okay, lines are a you kind – the that expand growth? certain offering up there commentary, kind just bit, or organic to Is that on in see efficient

Michael Perito

the think on side you you conversations or my And pandemic that’s along aspect you or of that without idea any digital more you months dealing this headlines growth obviously, the kind six is have you. strategy on to anything but the banking question since steady? has of to the is, worth direct it whether more the steady, openness branches noticed consumer side it’s sector any the mean or do at over past lines here. contact, that any start like interest on not and least those curious then, banking the be all. new at with I or kind physical receptiveness of Greg, Thank has lot customer yours. digital Helpful. increased the I been been noting for fairly just But the U.S. commercial guys – you something guess I And to of been the obviously, it. there have based read think Got of banking a on focus, and is

Greg Garrabrants

although are growth think small they both are seeing there. No, are that We business yes, continuing accounts consumer definitely I you and relatively these see do saw to it in a rate side. of are small on and the volumes, the Yes. often – shift accounts, significant application the we
