Despite these economic headwinds we continued to effectively execute on our strategy to be the most trusted choice and to unify the customer experience. The second quarter was a record quarter for us as we once again delivered industry-leading returns, steady loan growth and strength in our fee-based businesses. Steady loan growth, demonstrated by continued strength in commercial loans and momentum in consumer loans, led to increased net interest income despite a decline in net interest margin. Growth in our fee revenue continued across many of our fee-based businesses, including our payments business lines. We also reported strong results in our capital markets business as we were positioned well to provide products and services to our customers as they navigated through the recent market volatility. And we managed our capital effectively, delivering 77% of our second quarter earnings back to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks.”
