(3) Assets under supervision (AUS) include assets under management and other client assets. Assets under management include client assets where the firm earns a fee for managing assets on a discretionary basis. Other client assets include client assets invested with third-party managers, private bank deposits and advisory relationships where the firm earns a fee for advisory and other services, but does not have investment discretion.

In April 2013, the firm completed the sale of a majority stake in its Americas reinsurance business and no longer consolidates this business.

Tangible common shareholders' equity equals total shareholders' equity less preferred stock, goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. Tangible book value per common share is computed by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares outstanding, including restricted stock units granted to employees with no future service requirements. Management believes that tangible common shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per common share are meaningful because they are measures that the firm and investors use to assess capital adequacy. Tangible common shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The table below presents the reconciliation of total shareholders' equity to tangible common shareholders' equity:

The Tier 1 capital ratio equals Tier 1 capital divided by risk-weighted assets (RWAs). The Tier 1 common ratio equals Tier 1 common capital divided by RWAs. As of December 31, 2013, Tier 1 capital was $72.47 billion and Tier 1 common capital was $63.25 billion (Tier 1 capital less $9.22 billion of perpetual non-cumulative preferred stock, junior subordinated debt issued to trusts and other adjustments). The firm’s RWAs under the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System’s risk-based capital requirements were approximately $433 billion as of December 31, 2013, under Basel I and also reflecting the revised market risk regulatory capital requirements which became effective on January 1, 2013. Management believes that the Tier 1 common ratio is meaningful because it is one of the measures that the firm, its regulators and investors use to assess capital adequacy. The Tier 1 common ratio is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. For a further discussion of the firm's capital ratios, see “Equity Capital” in Part I, Item 2 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2013.

In April 2013, the firm completed the sale of a majority stake in its Americas reinsurance business and no longer consolidates this business. Net revenues related to the Americas reinsurance business were $317 million and $1.08 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, and $317 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

 
(11) Includes employees, consultants and temporary staff.
 
(12)

The remaining authorization represents the shares that may be repurchased under the repurchase program approved by the Board of Directors. As disclosed in Note 19. Shareholders’ Equity in Part I, Item 1 “Financial Statements” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2013, share repurchases require approval by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

(14)

Unvested share-based payment awards that have non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents are treated as a separate class of securities in calculating earnings per common share. The impact of applying this methodology was a reduction in basic earnings per common share of $0.05 and $0.07 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, and $0.01 for each of the three months ended December 31, 2013, September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

VaR is the potential loss in value of the firm’s inventory positions due to adverse market movements over a one-day time horizon with a 95% confidence level. Diversification effect represents the difference between total VaR and the sum of the VaRs for the four risk categories. For a further discussion of VaR and the diversification effect, see “Market Risk Management” in Part I, Item 2 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2013.

 
(16)

Includes $34 billion of fixed income asset inflows in connection with the firm’s acquisition of Dwight Asset Management Company LLC for the year ended December 31, 2012.
