Couple guys. morning of good questions. Hey,

Paul, something key in on to you wanted I sensitivity. rate the said, on First,

about crude it's it's its of out. $XXX and sensitive a that know cut trading million basis I book. think quarter, but your XX short but million in your you liability banking And net mentioned if I end, you just the the book mentioned, on kind You point $XXX that's approximation,

good morning. Hey,

I So start to on wanted business. the banking with question investment off the

improve speak And I We fee that quarters. more or share momentum driving in whether some quarter. to could business of it anything you nice seen hoping of changes to? it's some some was some in increasing recent its So the factors maybe had attribute that you would pretty leadership to else the the share loss

Brian Moynihan


to review, I think XX%. quick a market the year-over-year just down were Dealogic So according fees

were we've at picked I fees XX%, if fees reported up us, say maybe clearly Dealogic And you Our market so down would share. at this meaningful in only look quarter X%. least for

that a we were said slippage a three not bit result this going think ever do, we all we of things banking, and of had but we was should think we problem a investment there top in to I the is that there. little be

Steven Chubak

more to heavier Helpful a very more are of across topic it's you one pretty me that in I to speak disclosures, a it's whether benign doctors or color. some Also of NII, terms I And relating tack. growth, Paul, the obviously flawed, are you driving rate the the different then, of it's that anything impact in offsets static There's you cited versus and speak it the explicitly deposit industry from just mean inherently XX-Q can curve, XX-Q disclosed on on slightly to? some the comparing issues forward maybe volume snapshot. versus sensitivity your else the know lines the what which

Brian Moynihan

of the couple Paul basis broader down Paul lost on is sometimes, has shock curve in points Just statement. and the a to we gets that XXX precise, it. XXX forward I'll points of top that disclosed basis said let one times thing to get across be the into When curve what

see so two curve from stable having current off they of the minus confused of that the And case the think another XX sometimes its by environment people because get by then in rate rest XXX, and its actually off. year and cuts we rate and the forward XXX today its

which have, twice We're we've careful sort broader miscalculation have. factors. And people. you're sure people making people other so But that you other that can you that us. ahead saying dynamic, but Paul of not seen get that not don't mentioned be just through take Paul of But has the make

Paul Donofrio

Look, lot change, you we've add. not sure you've rate about those I'm clients, same clients go the where up on got And Banking there on down, done mean probably if be clients roughly a on pass-through. of else great the if the going GWIM right, can just little think room the or pass-through rate of bit we've I right. rates if are got rate paid you job cycle, because our consumer up clients, in clients Sure. what to I the Global where more but they isn't got downside, be

now Generale. ahead. Please to Lim We'll Societe with Andrew go go

Andrew Lim

of more just rates. Hi, thanks interest, terms questions. my of I'm side in taking color looking bit for deposit the mix sort a and the net for on

nine. So this slide is related to

grow and deposits global interest interest we quite much emanating nicely. know the growing And bearing you in So very banking see side. to from deposits struggling going what's the that's on here

it's deposits talk just about bit especially more side? more So why bit in your the competitive grow a banking could non-interest global dynamics a you to as to bearing if wondering difficult

second then bearing And is to deposit my question relating the interest side.

basis has rate then up rate develop then how interest that declining the by So supplement, Could you expect simply the points. to in So beta gone is that? up? talk going if looked what's driving at paid would about X we a environment? And that you

And rate account you there? shifts yield we've a take into then my third is mix. and the question interest seen some static on based is on guidance deposit mix What that, would as your further

Brian Moynihan

remember you Okay, well deposits. help your to have here. we go bearing through let's know start with you'll me And non-interest questions as

So and on interest the conceptually consumer. are company. non-interest you deposits, in we that's are consumer bearing non-interest the deposits growing non-interest of bearing Those growing deposits -- really where find low tracking in

when ECR bearing. non-interest transactions. non-interest Global excess accounts that it comfortable need, banking, of confidence were of careful, all non-interest They sort in only their their any and they more we the paid about plus they bearing But they The funds really liquidity, get to corporations bearing probably deposits. deposits. interest rates just the outside rise, what quietly a do leaving we deposits they're bearing bearing interest interest transactions bearing It's the were U.S. non-interest as and -- the bearing and non-interest bit little excess don't on leave rates non-interest like they daily Think lowered. do and very have pushing have those that into bearing. remember, what interest in account their bearing

bankers to treasury focus That the and what world. that at us. XX% the the the have global So is X% relations from clients value grew fact bringing that services the in reflects we're banking XX% added, we've sophistication you climb the and good and should and on around reflects U.S. the is year-over-year. platform in deposits feels we growth and it in they gone that

So was question? that, second that’s all in for the first the question. What

Andrew Lim

your deposits. on your bearing -- rates The non, on interest

at look -- to we your X XX. going rate we're up to interest your U.S. basis then I supplement a As disclosure, as XX points bearing deposit think to looking from

Paul Donofrio

think been a pricing maybe is increase up. little the There wasn't consumer. just mean, and banking, mix in shift reflects about of just lot I talking Yes. bit we've of that than that that's exception other GUM global probably to have I banking, a to you you more company. interest and a in the you're deposit relatively global was the see shift, deposits when an see overall flat of going to bearing, mix go increase in rate in going

Andrew Lim

expect to shift forward? continue mix And going that would

Paul Donofrio

if their Well, environment I depends It what don't he's going to know continue. does.

Brian Moynihan

call were business looking it are the expect business. said banking because know that -- were institutional continue in Remember, question growth should into global growing checking the like you consumers consecutive in businesses, of trends we the a quarters, that XX to really is earlier different so you the there

and see wealth a other way the then they if that think of the down, and have And sort look As of manager’s will little thing you the use back stabilize the you you at to movement, cash. or you rates way then bit. moved, about a saw come actually as between, come movement stabilize rates if half

depends and base. where transactional, the Some on And more a get then people it. base, are exacerbated, becomes to in as trying of investment as consumer on the either in the prevalent put some -- client wealthier obviously oriented wealth more in yield that institutional client money part that,

And half of the it categories, from exceed you've you. So mix in a billion think consumer in $XX we of drive all all -- billion hugely XX the and own, in in but are tremendous growth here, be that's discussion the many we deposits of Paul, a and our want I customers line, make our with got by in of and advantaged what deposits part into here. question. That massive checking think as estimates use you to of institutions. party deposit size all We and the deposit Paul third fund growth think our in business that it, is business all I up the is remember consumer this, growth stubborn cost side segment. by These question that do core it our about when we that. growth was one by factored had back we to engines then a don't to estimate impact

Andrew Lim

much. That's very great. Thanks
