In This Issue:

  • Banking profitability accelerated this quarter due to higher revenue and a lower effective tax rate.
  • Loan loss provision growth decelerated from last quarter
  • Revolving consumer loan growth decelerated from last quarter, but remains near historical averages
  • The banking industry continues to lose 50-75 banks per quarter to M&A
