Non-interest income of $136 million was up 10% ($13 million) primarily due to higher foreign exchange revenue recorded in ‘other’ non -interest income and reflects a strengthening U.S. dollar. The increase in wealth management service fees was primarily driven by higher average assets under management. Higher credit related fees were driven by loan growth and an increase in administration fees associated with our enhanced credit card offerings, for which we do not retain the underlying credit risk of the cards or carry outstanding balances on our balance sheet. Higher trust services fees reflect an increase in transaction volumes in the current year, primarily driven by higher than normal activity as customers re-balanced their portfolios in the rising interest rate environment. The increase in non-interest income was partially offset by lower net gains on security sales, which were elevated in the prior year from the re-balancing of our cash and securities portfolio through the market disruptions that followed the COVID-19 pandemic.
