Financial Performance in 4Q
The company delivered Q4 revenue of $30.3 billion, up 1% year-over-year and exceeded consensus estimates of $29.9 billion. Non-interest revenue dropped 1% year-over-year to $16.6 billion, driven by lower revenue in Corporate Investment Banking (CIB) markets and Home Lending.
Net income landed at $10.4 billion, down 14% year-over-year due to higher non-interest expense. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) stood at $3.33, better-than consensus estimates of $3.01. Net interest income moved up by 3% year-over-year to $13.7 billion, driven by balance sheet growth but partially offset by lower interest income in CIB markets.

The Commercial Banking segment, on the other hand, posted a 38% decline in net income to $1.3 billion, driven by lower credit reserves compared to the same period last year. Net income in the Asset & Wealth Management (AWM) Segment jumped 46% to $1.1 billion as revenue grew 16% to $4.5 billion.
