  • Highlights from Consumer and Community Banking (CCB) - CCB segment of the Company generated net revenue of $11.0 billion in Q2 2015, lower than $11.5 billion in prior year quarter. The decline was attributed to spread compression and lower Mortgage Banking revenue. In addition, the net income of the segment was recorded at $2.5 billion, up 1% YoY.

Whereas, net income of the segment reduced by 21% YoY to $0.5 billion, driven by high non-interest expenses due to higher legal expense and the impact of a loss from a held-for-sale asset.
