5/3 Bank Returns Jump Dramatically

January 21, 2021

Jim Russell spoke with Steve Watkins of the Cincinnati Business Courier about Fifth-Third Bancorp’s most recent returns, jumping 28% over the same quarter one year ago:

“It was a very solid fourth quarter,” Russell told me.

“Higher capital levels will allow for aggressive share repurchase and dividend increases later this year. Expense savings and improving net charge-offs in Fifth Third’s loan book should be tailwinds for the company in 2021.”
