CEO Commentary


“Fourth quarter results capped a strong year for U.S. Bank and the momentum we are seeing in our lending and fee businesses positions us well for 2019. This quarter we achieved record revenue and EPS and delivered a best-in-class return on tangible common equity of 20.2%. These strong results enabled us to return 80% to our shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. Loan growth accelerated in the fourth quarter even as we maintained our consistent and disciplined underwriting standards. Furthermore, we continued to see strong sales activity and expanded customer relationships across all of our businesses supported by our investments in technology and innovation, as well as our employees’ dedication to helping to make our customers’ financial lives simpler and more productive. I want to thank our employees for their efforts this year and every year, and for their unwavering commitment to making U.S. Bank the most trusted choice for our customers.”

— Andy Cecere, Chairman, President and CEO, U.S. Bancorp
