Michael J. Roffler
Chief Executive Officer, President & Board Member at First Republic Bank
Thank you, Jim.
It was another quarter of strong growth and financial performance. This quarter's results once again demonstrate the durability of our business model and service culture and the consistency of our execution. Let me now share a few results. Year-over-year, total loans outstanding were up 24%. Total deposits have grown 19%. Wealth management assets were down less than 1%, while the S&P was down 17% over the same period. Bob will touch on this more momentarily. Our growth, in turn, has led to strong financial performance. Year-over-year, total revenues have grown 17%.
Net interest income has grown 21% and earnings per share have grown 16%. And tangible book value per share has increased more than 11%. As Jim mentioned, maintaining strong credit and capital as a fundamental part of our culture and business model. Our credit remains pristine. Nonperforming assets were only 6 basis points at quarter end. Net charge-offs were only $1 million during the quarter. For perspective, this is just a fraction of a single basis point of our $159 billion loan portfolio. We remain very well capitalized with a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 8.6% at quarter end. This includes a successful common equity raise in August.
Turning to interest rates for a moment. As Jim mentioned, since our last call, the Fed increased rates very rapidly. Additionally, the market's expectation for future rate hikes also increased. We have responded to the sharp rise in rates by providing clients with attractive deposit opportunities through CDs and money market accounts. While this client-centric approach puts pressure on our net interest margin in the near term, it will allow us to retain and acquire great clients who will stay with us and grow with us for many years to come. Year-over-year, our households have increased 13%. This is the strongest level of growth in 3 years. These new households are all seeds for the future. We are delighted with this continued strong household growth. Importantly, our service model continues to generate strong net interest income, which is a product of our strong loan growth. We have always viewed net interest income as a key driver of our business performance.
Turning to markets. Our urban coastal markets remain healthy and attractive. As rates have increased, residential real estate prices have come down slightly as expected. Our pipeline remains robust heading into the fourth quarter. Our client service model continues to resonate with clients. Our Net Promoter Score of 79, is at its highest level ever. Given our differentiated level of service, we continue to see very attractive opportunities for growth. Overall, it was a strong quarter. Our business model is performing quite well, and we remain focused on the many opportunities in front of us.
Now I'll turn the call over to Mike Selfridge, Chief Banking Officer.
