President Donald Trump’s first year at the helm was a near perfect storm for banks.

Bank of America was no exception. Consumer banking revenue, excluding net interest income, rose 9% in 2017. And displaying CEO Brian Moynihan’s deft cost-cutting hand, income in the segment rose 14%. That’s not to say the year was perfect–the ever-rising stock market kept investors complacent and trading revenues depressed.
