The decline was primarily driven by lower income tax benefits, as the year-ago period included the recognition of certain foreign tax credits, as well as lower equity investment income compared to the year-ago quarter. This was partially offset by a $638 million decrease in the provision for credit losses from the year-ago quarter, primarily reflecting the continued improvement in portfolio trends, including increased home prices in the residential mortgage portfolio. Negative FVO adjustments were $417 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, flat from the year-ago quarter.
