The change in the mix of interest-bearing deposits and securities holdings compared to a year ago reflects a modest extension of the expected duration of this aggregate position designed to increase the yield relative to interest-bearing deposits. The securities purchased in recent periods were primarily short- to intermediate-term U.S. Government Agency notes and mortgage-backed securities and, to a lesser extent, intermediate-term tax-exempt municipal securities.
