Net interest income in the fourth quarter declined 74.3% year-over-year to $12.8 million due to lower interest income. Other income grew 22.5% during the quarter to $106.2 million.

Two Harbors’ President, CEO and Chief Investment Officer, Bill Greenberg, said, “With the Federal Reserve firmly on the path of quantitative tightening, we are well-positioned to deploy capital into a more constructive investing environment and are optimistic about the forward outlook for Two Harbors and our paired Agency + MSR strategy.”
