Evercore. the from come with question first of line John Pancari Your

John Pancari

On your revenue rate guidance good backdrop. the outlook and the to full despite for unchanged the year, it's see

the expectation is low wondering for the of that NII here be the out unchanged Because break year your backdrop I'm full is likely for would the single and at digit versus of lower helping environment. revenue So that like outlook could in higher the revenue -- of between seems you rate -- improving your if that keep what it end fees? it fee expectation outlook

Robert Reilly

yes, this yes. John, Rob. Yes, is

a that time in income. said guidance we the you end less digits, when noninterest of think be NII a the than single the rates, my what as I originally expect higher-than-expected of growth. Fast-forward expected, for our not much take to a is environment where income noninterest as a we in see little rate a probably comments little it now off so we the declining bit would back done loan pickup. NII as look accounting I and more full year low upper pointed of terms we'd at the little out because the today, at in NII

income. So from your little probably more a noninterest little bit equal a question, answer bit to probably and contribution NII more both

William Demchak

it's bit, clear down a saying is what it that NII to our little relative So Rob guide.

Robert Reilly

Expectation. our expectation. original Yes, That's right. of

John Pancari

it. Got Right.

give granularity then looked bps Okay. see And a the NII, what you impact as to margin bit know the -- you I through what little impact how for couple cut? of remainder also previously Just pertains of is cuts? you're you what the trending? you on more us sensitivity. a can year, your be the your looking now would or but NIM curious for And that XX on it expectation curious NII basis rate point then

William Demchak

jump We the to -- of bit is expectation could sets cut. got because that going a front is Fed This quarter, in. the the in a of both LIBOR of weird kind that John,

So and yields deposit other offset things. by loan that any that in in rates we drop really had wasn't drop

was all you opposed the this you're don't quarter drop I of Interestingly, balance the saw asset sheet. So that as of side a virtually see we know liability that like all side to what our going or on saw to

have So forward, the forecast. I going cuts think we two in do

You'll still shouldn't NIM like that, a that. said the pressure, all that but in there caveats other we it under million there's mix quarter. affect all and things at this saw be see Having drop to

Robert Reilly

terms. think just I in add can to I that simple

even largely side, were we were up. the rates And because driven actually went up the commercial though down, deposit interest-bearing assets quarter, basis loan down by yields. This X came liability borrowings down on point

So going we... forward,

William Demchak

of were And rates the mix because betas. not because up of deposit shift

Robert Reilly

Yes. That's competitive right. And factors.

in So be liabilities forward we the going see more tandem.

approximate that to compression be So approximate then have, to we NII $XXX the itself, cuts And X point. terms relative to in of million. that we about the less the Bill's amount on

William Demchak

Relative to our...

Robert Reilly

to Relative what cuts... would've it been Yes. the

William Demchak

cut... If we the get can

Robert Reilly

right. that's Together,

a time, can to The that is interest-bearing profitable. other is come leave banking deposits market as online that to clear and margin to mind, from my very to see shift is in portion clear deposits well noninterest-bearing go measure take on to you as thing banking profitable us this it's as least the greater this to mix be and through at that that's We in and us the competitors for very of market be the for growing. going interest-bearing that declining effect greater,

You're spending continue which see the markets as about to fin. build our going to we've out we talked saturated in branch this

that's impact go but I'm would've to XX a rather it's see had drive -- willing offer a Somebody sense -- it stronger than great think says, that's than been minutes otherwise somebody kind do has look, of digitally. That face-to-face common suspected. the but I has I to

Gerard Cassidy

C&I that guys back coming, not strong the bringing people The these are which circling or they completely loans your the are what it's the to the if strong to relationships on telling management your are -- prices obviously area, making different these what knows people underwriting just competition building and at guys in or for than are footprint, the is everybody folks loan are that the -- it's said that from growth or frontline outside C&I selling you've making or then have, again why not underwriting? And what's very tradition products you're you, pricing assuming I'm you loan, treasury you not you standards.

William Demchak

new markets John, of that have kind these see starting as for we've this roll-on to of to business you a in couple First, remember of been the years. just we're

to we planting made on it takes. What on come Mike Our in we've long this sometimes as the Lyons then get the it years of seeds.

later the X bought same you We alive now. of effort came you're we thing, years If right? and seeds planted back what kind seeing that RBC, and and that's way when the we all remember did X

a difference. big clients. you makes TM traditional would it's tell that So I

for to part as terms end ability often and of to more cross-sell and offer intro, when you products CFOs just your have you in treasurers as with credit than leading up in capital Our of not you from. to pursue of the more and -- relationship choose variety cross-sell, go we with

it's products, and for us. have We good worked

Robert Reilly

receptivity very well Bill services. the tend with potential is clients all point what in to to that to the what Yes, is found calling the But a ago dialogue with all high was very years of and that Gerard, agree the that it's and PNC that I'd our been add receptivity but add XX products which we geographies out. high I I'd very these is once occurs, that We effort has difficult. pointed compete

Gerard Cassidy

obviously then there federal down just are they maintained? already? And they are be reserve lastly, you year-over-year low How balances can quite Or before nicely. to your have go just

Robert Reilly

good go? so can low so how Well, -- That's think we a question. I

we're... I think

William Demchak

go can to think a down I out securities. wanted it's put that LCR we to you X Level into that if function of stuff X

Robert Reilly

That's right. right. That's

William Demchak

quarter issues allowed you mix this the the would balance we of have One otherwise actually of wholesale a our to was more. which the changed and/or to securities XA, bit balance us saw on drop either less borrowings have

Robert Reilly

Yes.

that's all think I true.

essentially levels the to I if we we're possible levels part be tailoring and What the substantially. could think the would a at. go I as LCR proposals expect point in that though we out that reduction as occurs, down at

our as $XX is math billion on XX% XX% billion $XX or leverage. maybe much Our as it's whether depending what
