Fellow Shareholders

Welcome to our 2016 interactive Environmental, Social and Governance Report. As a global financial services company, we are in a position to help address global environmental and social challenges, and to support opportunities for economic growth, including within local communities.

We do this in a number of ways across our businesses. We work with a variety of clients including companies, local, state and national governments, and investors. We help connect them to capital to help grow their operations, facilitate investment or provide them with risk management solutions. These activities play a critical role in helping to support a sustainable economy.

As a management team, we acknowledge the importance of sustainability as a driver of long-term value creation for our shareholders. It is also an important part of our contribution to the communities where our people and clients work and live. Our 2016 Environmental, Social and Governance Report describes how we approach the environment, our people and corporate governance — all fundamental areas that underpin our approach to sustainability. It also highlights six examples of our sustainability-related efforts over the past year, including:

Continuous engagement with a variety of investors and other constituents on these matters is important to us, and provides us with invaluable perspectives that will continue to inform our approach. We encourage you to explore our 2016 interactive Environmental, Social and Governance Report and we look forward to continuing our engagement in the years ahead.

Sincerely,
