Gregory Garrabrants

lot, like volumes and It's it's Think it but just personnel really to we branch for software going the the investments is just there's over They're it's is and that. basically big on making it's, opportunities right. some business maintain be for, it massive. has and really it take the bank are materially are it because like there, say, things slightly big. opportunity inefficient then months, let's six, most processing up exists that it's but real increase of it that structure to we relatively I it's XX:XX level that think side, gonna to make through like, not involves like straight taking opportunity time. what a what that efficient. the But But it involves, and but the nine then there, complicated, two, to and six to, more

which changes teams not operational we some charges, we term stuff that. need there's which they're And they timeframe we, those experience to cool that self-clearing really they like also and had not plans and have behavioral there's things don't just lot like to big. were third of changes, acquisition like the and also do. changing are we time in And the quite but we're to to it's have things there's processing they're so as there. want – want customers it's workflows, on area, how doing a efficiencies. lot, pieces And those duplicated short even how thing. massive, only three core a there's increase side, happen, it's driving and about a clearing that we there's mentioned So of and I to are not interact, time, as months to this We so shorter obviously, two things significant. then and there, fault And, processing to not how to firm, customer fast not lot on, the because It's But are it's, are those just, But lot those, is not, don't technology really a of it's have, close those a but spend efficiencies a used opportunities didn't the going a to right? a the there's the way there's, lot those take six years there, we're resulting those they're as in businesses a way, we have – be in out, have so about things like it It's, we opportunities can. capabilities that paying those the great, which and that. longer-term, there party don't very some that are

such now like it gonna the investments offset the we're increases, just in take biggest work. I pencilling – it's you've make this we to in making is this going the big and next were wouldn't just savings have, happen, or think some and year, some for make just, obviously, So term. to a just big right really benefit time shorter to stuff And, going that's be And that's got to that I the there's of And, we we we've able get but to that. better be a ever generate way higher that, out the great you position liquidity been. and sell. talking, of the than fi group excited clients. be in as individuals ought integrated this we have, right we're to to able know, know, cross all well a services XXX,XXX, to everybody's get worth high to going is and banking then can about you net platforms It's But

Michael Perito

products those just guys add on offer and of of about you X.X side, strong. ability pudding. far I XX:XX a AAS, banking where that is things will scaling, sales and investments think, nature, just you. you you building but Helpful, making, group on XX, an guys next lending you phase as of UDB of And, thank kind the to And think that general it's obviously, in know about I guys guys how the head out? that platform. of of do kind cross AAS you the mean, lot the that then not think of customers of XX out kind you the kind type proof the effort? and the if how do Are in pretty months? you in constantly marketing is think there the But to selling, and next

further system there clearing our think I our have think of opening version some different of with account we XX:XX our are than beta it pieces we in that have, I clients. are

into efficient, of the UDB, labeled be white touch. right, accounts clearing sort on is opening probably little that clearing that going and The is get and but, probably they adoption, year that something dealers can a is has them this that along integrated you custody is this which of core, to a a into So have those a nobody's an Right? maybe label helps then done that this account a because UDB helps exercise, means the be the broker pretty system in be also lot to yet. But efficient, and like more Axos through ways. example different us give on so then pretty, well that really example. helps be than think. the synergies benefits bit obviously interesting It a So see go lot a because and two be created. it system, to right Pretty I more uptake. simple you've through, manual a it's one, is good of with custody, client got a strategy. and there's it's further I can clearing, you we're clear that of white require it's that And, That's mean, obviously, to a very don't those real offered just things. a

So, trying to a into right? use happens is you market, is that's their can account There's right at they're that's and a say, immediately, bank our say, your mailing forwarding you're wire Right? and you sending, if are very a to account, and they're if that make the check and third make for that somebody to have check simple right? a that to you're a and integration, sense. so instantaneous out to using cutting us. process somebody that the to want then sending manually right, that processed, kind much clear wants and without disbursement machine what's better that, you engine look our it risk for and often has instantaneously, complicated a cheque, of board, to a they that sending XX:XX as take using more to right? So filling get But When by project now, party stuff an and mean, check when out of, cheque, RIA, or opposed a make none customers across that they let's take cheque I check, disbursement, a RIA don't should an be the a check that money you IA RDC want doesn't transfer. be a UDB,

on cross And individual activities, you just side down the, on break side. there when like the, there's operation much many you just so the all things the and see there's sell synergy the So so that.

and So yeah, it see a the but is, and lower that I mean, meaningful lower will franchise really very low focus everything the costs, else, partly and amount – right the deposit benefit in, ends see deposit having from you in way, you with those up bearing something it a as we that's we've that beta, think just with, gonna non-interest way that be see, deposits and transformed can and of continued businesses. really you the

on relative, average just on just right, it, missed one me, else talking anything going curious mean, for last apologize. But mixing there And guys securities versus you that. then remarks. Were the still risk drove if cap I like right if ratios. that for was it the, significantly helpful. reg Thanks. pretty through question down balance assets that capitalist regulatory curious, what the something just that of XX:XX there, on looks obviously, looking for, like on were was sheet variance? some That's, Thanks up the capital the I'm going on a quarter-on-quarter the there's and I it kind that's C&I it prepared some in movement loans. this of side, up based were in re kind obviously, at but look lower were on that I

Gregory Garrabrants

that I in mean, single family Jumbo asset I we grow. Yeah, the stable, category, XX:XX growth think the mostly. had, didn't was XXX%, was And but risk-weighted

is increased you requires and know, multifamily C&I the or is capital obviously, does risk we sort that less weighted to efficient of, pretty question capital, commitments, it only to have of, qualified loans. bring XXX% part this you're if which over which that assets, or then quarter, did some So, than single business, and you of which bear the growing parcel much longer-term the

,So ratios to and, just the still are the business obviously, we're well on be we pay you an as we're capitalized, to, leverage something that's keeping So great. have to. something and eye shifts focused as very said, But So that that's that like have on. way, the attention
