What does ‘customer-focused’mean, and what are youdoing to make it real?”
In 2010, we established a clear goal — to be the finestfinancial services firm in the world in the eyes of our custom-ers, our employees and each of you as shareholders. Thereis ample evidence that we are making progress on the coursewe set. Our focus and strategy are clear: We deliver to threegroups of customers and clients the leading capabilities theyneed to manage their financial lives and businesses.

Continue to build a fortress balance sheet
When we set out to transform our company two years ago,our first urgent challenge was to strengthen our foundation —the balance sheet. We focused on selling non-core assets,increasing capital ratios, building liquidity and reducing risk.
“We listen to our customers and clients, learn whattheir needs are, and do all we can to provide the advice,services and products that respond to those needs.To do that best, we want to have the broadest possiblefinancial relationship with our customers and clients.Simply put: We can do more for them than anyone else,wherever they are in their financial lives.”
