Global Markets revenue increased $1.0 billion from the year-ago quarter to $2.8 billion. Excluding DVA E, revenue increased $839 million to $3.1 billion driven by higher sales and trading revenue and an increase in debt issuance activity. The current quarter included DVA losses of $276 million, compared to DVA losses of $474 million in the year-ago quarter.

Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities (FICC) sales and trading revenue, excluding DVA F, was $1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of $485 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by credit businesses which benefited from improved credit markets in Europe and in the financial sector . Equities sales and trading revenue, excluding DVA F, was $713 million, an increase of $61 million from the year-ago quarter due to increased client balances in financing and improved trading performance in derivatives.

Noninterest expense declined to $2.5 billion from $2.9 billion in the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by a decrease in personnel-related expense.
