In the third quarter of 2012, noninterest income accounted for 34 percent of City National's total revenue compared to 26 percent in both the third quarter of 2011 and the second quarter of 2012.

Wealth Management

City National's assets under management totaled $38.0 billion as of September 30, 2012, up 13 percent from the year-earlier period and 18 percent higher than the second quarter of 2012.

Trust and investment fees were $43.5 million, up 23 percent from the third quarter of 2011 and 28 percent higher than the second quarter of 2012. Year-to-date 2012 trust and investment fee income was up 3 percent from the same period last year.  The increases in assets under management and trust and investment fees were due primarily to the Rochdale acquisition.

Brokerage and mutual fund fees totaled $9.1 million, up 78 percent from the year-earlier period and 71 percent higher than the second quarter of 2012. Brokerage and mutual fund fee income was $19.4 million in the first nine months of this year, up 24 percent from the same period of 2011. The increases in mutual fund fees were due primarily to slightly higher short-term interest rates. The increases in brokerage fees were due to both the acquisition of Rochdale and growth within City National Securities. Not including the Rochdale acquisition, brokerage and mutual fund fees grew 14 percent from the second quarter of 2012 and 5 percent year to date. 1
