  • Total revenue was $3.7 billion, a decrease of 2%, or 1% (Non-GAAP) (a).
    • Investment services fees increased 1% reflecting higher money market fees and net new business partially offset by lower market values and lost business in clearing services.
    • Investment management and performance fees decreased 6%, or 4% on a constant currency basis (Non-GAAP), driven by lower equity market values and net outflows in 2015 (a).
    • Foreign exchange revenue decreased 21% reflecting lower volumes.
    • Financing-related fees increased $14 million driven by higher fees related to secured intraday credit.
    • Investment and other income increased $45 million driven by higher lease-related gains.
    • Net interest revenue increased $38 million driven by higher yields on interest-earning assets, partially offset by higher rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities and the impact of interest rate hedging activities.
            
  • The provision for credit losses was $10 million.
          
  • Noninterest expense was $2.6 billion, a decrease of 3%, on both a reported and adjusted basis (Non-GAAP) (a). The decrease reflects lower expenses in nearly all categories, driven by the favorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar, lower staff and legal expenses and the benefit of the business improvement process, partially offset by higher distribution and servicing expense.
           
  • Generated approximately 250 basis points of positive operating leverage year-over-year on an adjusted basis (Non-GAAP) (a).
            
  • Effective tax rate of 25.9%.
           
  • Assets under custody and/or administration ("AUC/A") and Assets under management ("AUM")
    • AUC/A of $29.1 trillion increased 2% reflecting net new business and the favorable impact of a weaker U.S. dollar (principally versus the Euro), partially offset by lower market values.
      • Estimated new AUC/A wins in Asset Servicing of $40 billion in 1Q16.
    • AUM of $1.64 trillion decreased 5% reflecting net outflows primarily in 2015 and the unfavorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar (principally versus the British pound).
      • Net long-term inflows of $1 billion in 1Q16 were driven by continued strength in liability-driven investments offset by outflows of index and equity investments.
      • Net short-term outflows totaled $9 billion in 1Q16.
              
  • Capital
    • Repurchased 16.2 million common shares for $577 million in 1Q16.
    • Adjusted return on tangible common equity of 21% (Non-GAAP) in 1Q16 (a).
    • Estimated supplementary leverage ratio ("SLR"), on a fully phased-in basis (Non-GAAP), exceeded 5.0% (a).

 


(a)

See "Supplemental information – Explanation of GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures" beginning on page 25 for the reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures.  Unless otherwise noted, Non-GAAP excludes net (loss) income attributable to noncontrolling interests of consolidated investment management funds, amortization of intangible assets, M&I, litigation and restructuring charges (recoveries) and the impairment charge related to a prior court decision, if applicable.

Asset servicing fees include securities lending revenue of $50 million in 1Q16, $46 million in 4Q15, $38 million in 3Q15, $49 million in 2Q15 and $43 million in 1Q15. 

N/M – Not meaningful.

 

KEY POINTS

  • Asset servicing fees were $1.0 billion, flat year-over-year and an increase of 1% sequentially. Both comparisons primarily reflect net new business and higher securities lending revenue, offset by lower market values. The year-over-year comparison also reflects the unfavorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar.
          
  • Clearing services fees were $350 million, an increase of 2% year-over-year and 3% sequentially. Both increases primarily reflect higher money market fees, partially offset by the impact of lost business. The sequential increase also reflects higher volumes.
          
  • Issuer services fees were $244 million, an increase of 5% year-over-year and 23% sequentially. Both the year-over-year and sequential increases primarily reflect higher money market fees in Corporate Trust and higher dividend fees in Depositary Receipts.
           
  • Treasury services fees were $131 million, a decrease of 4% both year-over-year and sequentially. Both decreases primarily reflect higher compensating balance credits provided to clients, which shifts revenue from fees to net interest revenue.
            
  • Investment management and performance fees were $812 million, a decrease of 6% year-over-year, or 4% on a constant currency basis (Non-GAAP). Both the year-over-year decrease on a constant currency basis (Non-GAAP) and the sequential decrease of 6% primarily reflect lower equity market values and net outflows in 2015, partially offset by higher money market fees. The sequential decrease also reflects seasonally lower performance fees.

Foreign exchange and other trading revenue totaled $175 million in 1Q16 compared with $229 million in 1Q15 and $173 million in 4Q15.  In 1Q16, foreign exchange revenue totaled $171 million, a decrease of 21% year-over-year and an increase of 4% sequentially.  The year-over-year decrease primarily reflects lower volumes.  The sequential increase primarily reflects higher volatility, partially offset by the impact of foreign currency hedging activity. Excluding the impact of hedging activity, foreign exchange revenue increased 12% sequentially.

Other trading revenue was $4 million in 1Q16, compared with $12 million in 1Q15 and $8 million in 4Q15.  Both decreases primarily reflect losses on hedging activities in the Investment Management businesses, partially offset by the positive impact of interest rate hedging (which is offset in net interest revenue) and higher fixed income trading revenue.

  • Financing-related fees were $54 million in 1Q16 compared with $40 million in 1Q15 and $51 million in 4Q15. The year-over-year increase primarily reflects higher fees related to secured intraday credit. The sequential increase primarily reflects higher underwriting fees.
            
  • Distribution and servicing fees were $39 million in 1Q16 compared with $41 million in both 1Q15 and 4Q15. Distribution and servicing fees were favorably impacted by higher money market fees, but were more than offset by certain fees paid to introducing brokers.

Excludes the gain (loss) on seed capital investments in consolidated investment management funds which are reflected in operations of consolidated investment management funds, net of noncontrolling interests.  The gain (loss) on seed capital investments in consolidated investment management funds was $1 million in 1Q16, $11 million in 4Q15, $(17) million in 3Q15, $3 million in 2Q15 and $21 million in 1Q15.

 

Investment and other income was $105 million in 1Q16 compared with $60 million in 1Q15 and $93 million in 4Q15.  Both increases primarily reflect higher lease-related gains.  The sequential increase was partially offset by lower other income reflecting the termination fees in our clearing business recorded in 4Q15 and lower income from corporate/bank-owned life insurance.

KEY POINTS

  • Total noninterest expense excluding amortization of intangible assets and M&I, litigation and restructuring charges (recoveries) (Non-GAAP) decreased 3% year-over-year and 2% sequentially.
          
  • The year-over-year decrease reflects lower expenses in nearly all categories, primarily driven by the favorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar, lower staff and legal expenses and the benefit of the business improvement process, partially offset by higher distribution and servicing expense. The savings generated by the business improvement process primarily reflects the benefits of our technology insourcing strategy and the implementation of our global real estate strategy.
             
    • Staff expense decreased year-over-year primarily reflecting lower estimated 2016 incentives and a higher adjustment for the finalization of the annual incentive awards, partially offset by the curtailment gain related to the U.S. pension plan recorded in 1Q15 and higher severance expense in ongoing support of our business improvement process.
              
  • The sequential decrease reflects lower expenses in all categories, except other and distribution and servicing expenses. The decrease in staff expense primarily reflects lower compensation and employee benefits expenses, partially offset by higher incentives, primarily due to the impact of vesting of long-term stock awards for retirement eligible employees. The increase in other expense primarily reflects the adjustments to bank assessment charges recorded in 4Q15. The increase in distribution and servicing expense is due to lower money market fee waivers.

INVESTMENT SECURITIES PORTFOLIO

At March 31, 2016, the fair value of our investment securities portfolio totaled $117.8 billion.  The net unrealized pre-tax gain on our total securities portfolio was $1.2 billion at March 31, 2016 compared with $357 million at Dec. 31, 2015.  The increase in the net unrealized pre-tax gain was primarily driven by a decline in market interest rates.  At March 31, 2016, the fair value of the held-to-maturity securities totaled $42.2 billion and represented 36% of the fair value of the total investment securities portfolio.

CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY

The common equity Tier 1 ("CET1"), Tier 1 and Total risk-based regulatory capital ratios in the first section of the table below are based on Basel III components of capital, as phased-in (referred to as "Transitional ratios"), and credit risk asset risk-weightings using the U.S. capital rules' advanced approaches framework (the "Advanced Approach") as the related risk-weighted assets ("RWA") were higher when calculated under the Advanced Approach at March 31, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2015.  Our risk-based capital adequacy is determined using the higher of RWA determined using the Advanced Approach and the U.S. capital rules' standardized approach (the "Standardized Approach").  The leverage capital ratios are based on Basel III components of capital, as phased-in and quarterly average total assets.  The transitional capital ratios for March 31, 2016 were negatively impacted by the additional phase-in requirements for 2016.  Our consolidated capital ratios are shown in the following table.

Reflects transitional adjustments to CET1, Tier 1 capital and Tier 2 capital required in 2016 under the U.S. capital rules.

 

BNY Mellon has presented its estimated fully phased-in Basel III CET1 and other risk-based capital ratios and SLR based on its interpretation of the U.S. capital rules, which are being gradually phased-in over a multi-year period, and on the application of such rules to BNY Mellon's businesses as currently conducted.  Management views the estimated fully phased-in Basel III CET1 and other risk-based capital ratios and SLR as key measures in monitoring BNY Mellon's capital position and progress against future regulatory capital standards.  Additionally, the presentation of the estimated fully phased-in Basel III CET1 and other risk-based capital ratios and SLR are intended to allow investors to compare these ratios with estimates presented by other companies.

Our capital and liquidity ratios are necessarily subject to, among other things, BNY Mellon's further review of applicable rules, anticipated compliance with all necessary enhancements to model calibration, approval by regulators of certain models used as part of RWA calculations, other refinements, further implementation guidance from regulators, market practices and standards and any changes BNY Mellon may make to its businesses.  Consequently, our capital and liquidity ratios remain subject to ongoing review and revision and may change based on these factors.

Supplementary Leverage Ratio ("SLR")

The following table presents the components of our estimated SLR using fully phased-in Basel III components of capital.

%



(a)

The estimated fully phased-in SLR (Non-GAAP) is based on our interpretation of the U.S. capital rules.  When the SLR is fully phased-in in 2018, we expect to maintain an SLR of over 5%.  The minimum required SLR is 3% and there is a 2% buffer, in addition to the minimum, that is applicable to U.S. G-SIBs. 

(b)

March 31, 2016 information is preliminary.

(c)

The estimated SLR on a fully phased-in basis (Non-GAAP) for our largest bank subsidiary, The Bank of New York Mellon, was 5.2% at March 31, 2016 and 4.8% at Dec. 31, 2015.  At March 31, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2015, total Tier 1 capital was $16,167 million and $15,142 million, respectively, and total leverage exposure was $312,988 million and $316,270 million, respectively, for The Bank of New York Mellon.

 

Liquidity Coverage Ratio ("LCR")

The U.S. LCR rules became effective Jan. 1, 2015 and currently require BNY Mellon to meet an LCR of 90%, increasing to 100% when fully phased-in on Jan. 1, 2017.  Our estimated LCR on a consolidated basis is compliant with the fully phased-in requirements of the U.S. LCR as of March 31, 2016 based on our understanding of the U.S. LCR rules.  Our consolidated high-quality liquid assets ("HQLA") before haircuts, totaled $202 billion at March 31, 2016, compared with $218 billion at Dec. 31, 2015.

REVIEW OF BUSINESSES

Segment results are subject to reclassification whenever improvements are made in the measurement principles or when organizational changes are made.  In the first quarter of 2016, we reclassified the results of the credit-related activities to the Investment Services segment from the Other segment.  This reclassification reflects our strategy to provide credit services to our Investment Services clients and did not impact the consolidated results.  Also, concurrent with this reclassification, the provision for credit losses associated with the respective credit portfolios is now reflected in each business segment.  All prior periods have been restated.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2016, we revised the net interest revenue for our business to reflect adjustments to our transfer pricing methodology to better reflect the value of certain deposits.  Also beginning in the first quarter of 2016, we refined the expense allocation process for indirect expenses to simplify the expenses recorded in the Other segment to include only expenses not directly attributable to the Investment Management and Investment Services operations.  These changes did not impact the consolidated results.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT provides investment management services to institutional and retail investors, as well as investment management, wealth and estate planning and private banking solutions to high net worth individuals and families, and foundations and endowments.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT KEY POINTS

  • Assets under management were $1.64 trillion at March 31, 2016, a decrease of 5% year-over-year and an increase of 1% sequentially. The year-over-year decrease primarily reflects net outflows primarily in 2015 and the unfavorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar (principally versus the British pound).
          
    • Net long-term inflows of $1 billion in 1Q16 were driven by continued strength in liability-driven investments offset by outflows of index and equity investments.
              
    • Net short-term outflows were $9 billion in 1Q16.
                
  • Income before taxes, excluding provision for credit losses and amortization of intangible assets, totaled $235 million in 1Q16, a decrease of 18% year-over-year and 24% sequentially.
           
  • Total revenue was $895 million, a decrease of 10% year-over-year and 10% sequentially.
             
    • 40% non-U.S. revenue in 1Q16 vs. 41% in 1Q15.
               
  • Investment management fees were $786 million, a decrease of 5% year-over-year, or 3% on a constant currency basis (Non-GAAP). Both the year-over-year decrease on a constant currency basis (Non-GAAP) and the 2% sequential decrease primarily reflect lower equity market values and net outflows in 2015, partially offset by higher money market fees.
            
  • Performance fees were $11 million in 1Q16 compared with $15 million in 1Q15 and $55 million in 4Q15. The sequential decrease was driven by seasonality. 
            
  • Distribution and servicing fees were $46 million in 1Q16 compared with $38 million in 1Q15 and $39 million in 4Q15. Both increases primarily reflect higher money market fees.
              
  • Other losses were $31 million in 1Q16 compared with other revenue of $41 million in 1Q15 and other revenue of $22 million in 4Q15. Both decreases primarily reflect lower seed capital gains, losses on hedging activities and increased payments to Investment Services related to higher money market fees.
              
  • Net interest revenue increased 11% year-over-year and decreased 1% sequentially. Both comparisons primarily reflect record average loans and deposits, partially offset by the impact of changes in the internal crediting rates for deposits beginning in 1Q16.
               
    • Average loans increased 23% year-over-year and 6% sequentially; average deposits increased 5% year-over-year and 3% sequentially.
              
  • Total noninterest expense (excluding amortization of intangible assets) decreased 7% year-over-year and 4% sequentially. Both decreases primarily reflect lower incentive and business development expenses and a lower indirect expense allocation beginning in 1Q16, partially offset by higher distribution and servicing expense driven by lower money market fee waivers. The year-over-year decrease also reflects the favorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar.

INVESTMENT SERVICES provides global custody and related services, broker-dealer services, global collateral services, corporate trust, depositary receipt and clearing services as well as global payment/working capital solutions to global financial institutions and credit-related activities.  In the first quarter of 2016, we reclassified the results of the credit-related activities to the Investment Services segment from the Other segment.  All prior periods have been restated.

INVESTMENT SERVICES KEY POINTS

  • Income before taxes, excluding the provision for credit losses and amortization of intangible assets, totaled $939 million in 1Q16.
           
    • The pre-tax operating margin, excluding the provision for credit losses and amortization of intangible assets, was 35% in 1Q16 and the investment services fees as a percentage of noninterest expense was 99% in 1Q16, reflecting the continued focus on the business improvement process to drive operating leverage.
                
  • Investment services fees were $1.7 billion, an increase of 1% year-over-year and 3% sequentially.
             
    • Asset servicing fees (global custody, broker-dealer services and global collateral services) were $1.016 billion in 1Q16 compared with $1.017 billion in 1Q15 and $1.009 billion in 4Q15. Both comparisons primarily reflect net new business and higher securities lending revenue, offset by lower market values. The year-over-year comparison also reflects the unfavorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar.
              
      • Estimated new business wins (AUC/A) in Asset Servicing of $40 billion in 1Q16.
                
    • Clearing services fees were $348 million in 1Q16 compared with $342 million in 1Q15 and $337 million in 4Q15. Both increases primarily reflect higher money market fees, partially offset by the impact of lost business. The sequential increase also reflects higher volumes.
              
    • Issuer services fees (Corporate Trust and Depositary Receipts) were $244 million in 1Q16 compared with $231 million in 1Q15 and $199 million in 4Q15. Both the year-over-year and sequential increases primarily reflect higher money market fees in Corporate Trust and higher dividend fees in Depositary Receipts.
              
    • Treasury services fees were $129 million in 1Q16 compared with $135 million in 1Q15 and $135 million in 4Q15. Both decreases primarily reflect higher compensating balance credits provided to clients, which shifts revenue from fees to net interest revenue.
              
  • Foreign exchange and other trading revenue was $168 million in 1Q16 compared with $212 million in 1Q15 and $150 million in 4Q15. The year-over-year decrease primarily reflects lower volumes. The sequential increase primarily reflects higher volatility.
            
  • Other revenue was $125 million in 1Q16 compared with $92 million in 1Q15 and $127 million in 4Q15. The year-over-year increase primarily reflects higher financing related fees. The sequential decrease primarily reflects termination fees in clearing service recorded in 4Q15. Both comparisons also reflect increased payment from Investment Management related to higher money market fees, partially offset by certain fees paid to introducing brokers.
              
  • Net interest revenue was $679 million in 1Q16 compared with $629 million in 1Q15 and $664 million in 4Q15. Both increases primarily reflect the impact of changes in the internal crediting rates for deposits beginning in 1Q16, partially offset by lower average loans and deposits.
             
  • Noninterest expense (excluding amortization of intangible assets) was $1.77 billion in 1Q16 compared with $1.82 billion in 1Q15 and $1.79 billion in 4Q15. Both decreases primarily reflect lower staff and professional, legal and other purchased services expenses. The year-over-year decrease was partially offset by higher litigation expense. The sequential decrease was partially offset by an adjustment to bank assessment charges recorded in 4Q15.

OTHER SEGMENT primarily includes leasing operations, corporate treasury activities, derivatives, global markets and institutional banking services, business exits and other corporate revenue and expense items.  In the first quarter of 2016, we reclassified the results of the credit-related activities from the Other segment to the Investment Services segment.  All prior periods have been restated.

KEY POINTS

  • Total fee and other revenue increased $44 million compared with 1Q15 and $40 million compared with 4Q15. Both increases primarily reflect lease-related gains. The sequential increase is partially offset by lower income from corporate/bank-owned life insurance.
             
  • Net interest revenue decreased $20 million compared with 1Q15 and $8 million compared with 4Q15. Both decreases primarily reflect the impact of changes in the internal crediting rates to the businesses for deposits beginning in 1Q16.
            
  • The provision for credit losses was a credit of $3 million in 1Q16. The provision for credit losses of $159 million in 4Q15 reflects the impairment charge recorded in 4Q15 related to a court decision.
             
  • Noninterest expense, excluding amortization of intangible assets and restructuring (recoveries) charges, increased $33 million compared with 1Q15 and decreased $9 million compared with 4Q15. The year-over-year increase primarily reflects the curtailment gain related to the U.S. pension plan recorded in 1Q15. The sequential decrease primarily reflects the adjustment to employee benefits expense recorded in 4Q15 driven by updated information received from an administrator of our health care benefits. Both comparisons also reflect higher severance expense recorded in 1Q16 in ongoing support of our business improvement process.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION – EXPLANATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

BNY Mellon has included in this Earnings Release certain Non-GAAP financial measures based on fully phased-in Basel III CET1 and other risk-based capital ratios, SLR and tangible common shareholders' equity.  BNY Mellon believes that the Basel III CET1 and other risk-based capital ratios on a fully phased-in basis, the SLR on a fully phased-in basis and the ratio of tangible common shareholders' equity to tangible assets of operations are measures of capital strength that provide additional useful information to investors, supplementing the capital ratios which are, or were, required by regulatory authorities.  The tangible common shareholders' equity ratio includes changes in investment securities valuations which are reflected in total shareholders' equity.  In addition, this ratio is expressed as a percentage of the actual book value of assets, as opposed to a percentage of a risk-based reduced value established in accordance with regulatory requirements, although BNY Mellon in its reconciliation has excluded certain assets which are given a zero percent risk-weighting for regulatory purposes and the assets of consolidated investment management funds to which BNY Mellon has limited economic exposure.  Further, BNY Mellon believes that the return on tangible common equity measure, which excludes goodwill and intangible assets net of deferred tax liabilities, is a useful additional measure for investors because it presents a measure of those assets that can generate income.  BNY Mellon has provided a measure of tangible book value per common share, which it believes provides additional useful information as to the level of tangible assets in relation to shares of common stock outstanding.

BNY Mellon has presented revenue measures which exclude the effect of noncontrolling interests related to consolidated investment management funds, and expense measures which exclude M&I, litigation and restructuring charges (recoveries) and amortization of intangible assets.  Earnings per share, return on equity, operating leverage and operating margin measures, which exclude some or all of these items, as well as the impairment charge related to a prior court decision, are also presented.  Operating margin measures may also exclude amortization of intangible assets and the net negative impact of money market fee waivers, net of distribution and servicing expense.  BNY Mellon believes that these measures are useful to investors because they permit a focus on period-to-period comparisons, which relate to the ability of BNY Mellon to enhance revenues and limit expenses in circumstances where such matters are within BNY Mellon's control.  The excluded items, in general, relate to certain charges as a result of prior transactions.  M&I expenses primarily relate to acquisitions and generally continue for approximately three years after the transaction.  Litigation charges represent accruals for loss contingencies that are both probable and reasonably estimable, but exclude standard business-related legal fees.  Restructuring charges relate to our streamlining actions, Operational Excellence Initiatives and migrating positions to Global Delivery Centers.  Excluding these charges mentioned above permits investors to view expenses on a basis consistent with how management views the business.

The presentation of revenue growth on a constant currency basis permits investors to assess the significance of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.  Growth rates on a constant currency basis were determined by applying the current period foreign currency exchange rates to the prior period revenue.  BNY Mellon believes that this presentation, as a supplement to GAAP information, gives investors a clearer picture of the related revenue results without the variability caused by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

The presentation of income (loss) from consolidated investment management funds, net of net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests related to the consolidation of certain investment management funds permits investors to view revenue on a basis consistent with how management views the business.  BNY Mellon believes that these presentations, as a supplement to GAAP information, give investors a clearer picture of the results of its primary businesses.

In this Earnings Release, the net interest margin is presented on an FTE basis.  We believe that this presentation provides comparability of amounts arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources, and is consistent with industry practice.  The adjustment to an FTE basis has no impact on net income.  Each of these measures as described above is used by management to monitor financial performance, both on a company-wide and on a business-level basis.

Income before taxes divided by total revenue.

(c)

Our GAAP earnings include tax-advantaged investments such as low income housing, renewable energy, bank-owned life insurance and tax-exempt securities.  The benefits of these investments are primarily reflected in tax expense.  If reported on a tax-equivalent basis these investments would increase revenue and income before taxes by $77 million for 1Q16, $73 million for 4Q15, $53 million for 3Q15, $52 million for 2Q15 and $64 million for 1Q15 and would increase our pre-tax operating margin by approximately 1.4% for 1Q16, 1.5% for 4Q15, 1.0% for 3Q15, 0.9% for 2Q15 and 1.2% for 1Q15.
