$ETFC assumed a dividend needs to really be built around sort of the core earnings and growth over time from that earnings stream. $ETFC's decision really in looking at it from a capital generation standpoint is a good portion of this is related to actions being taken within the capital plan. $ETFC believes buyback is the right path for this.

$ETFC's net interest income for 2Q17 increased 12% to $356MM, as it grew average interest earning assets by $3.2Bil and net interest margin increased 11 basis points to 274 basis points. This was driven by impact of March Fed rate hike, higher customer margin balances, and strong securities lending activity attributable to a popular March IPO.
