PART I

Item 1.                        Business

General

City National Corporation (the “Corporation”), a Delaware corporation organized in 1968, is a bank holding company for City National Bank (the “Bank” and together with the “Corporation”, the “Company”), which is the second largest independent commercial bank headquartered in California. The Bank, which was founded in 1953 and opened for business in January 1954, is a national banking association that conducts business in California and New York City. At December 31, 2005, the Company’s total assets reached $14.6 billion. City National focuses on providing entrepreneurs, their businesses and their families with complete financial solutions. The organization’s mission is to provide this banking and financial experience through an uncommon dedication to extraordinary service, proactive advice and total financial solutions. The Company provides banking, investment and trust services to our clients through the Bank and its non-banking subsidiaries. The Bank operates through 55 offices, including 12 full-service regional centers, in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.

The Corporation was approved to become a financial holding company pursuant to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the “GLB Act”) in July 2005. Subject to the GLB Act and related rules and regulations, a financial holding company may engage in activities that are financial in nature or are incidental to financial activity, such as insurance underwriting and agency, securities underwriting, dealing and market making, sponsoring mutual funds and investment companies and merchant banking.

The Company is engaged in one operating segment: providing private and business banking and related financial services, including investment and trust services. The Bank’s principal client base comprises small to mid-sized businesses, entrepreneurs, professionals, and affluent individuals. For 52 years, the Bank has served its clients through relationship banking. The Bank’s value proposition is to provide the ultimate banking experience because of our depth of expertise, our breadth of resources, our California focus and location, our dedication to complete solutions, our relationship banking model and our integrated team approach. Through the use of private and commercial banking teams, product specialists and investment advisors, the Bank facilitates the use by the client, where appropriate, of multiple services and products offered by the Company. The Company offers a broad range of lending, deposit, cash management, international banking, equipment financing, asset-based lending, and other products and services. The Company also lends, invests, and provides services in accordance with its Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”) commitment.

The Bank’s Wealth Management division, and the Corporation’s investment advisor subsidiaries make available the following investment advisory and wealth management resources and expertise to the Company’s clients: 1) investment management and advisory services and brokerage services, including portfolio management, securities trading and asset management, 2) personal and business trust and investment services, including employee benefit trust services, 401(k) and defined benefit plans and 3) estate and financial planning and custodial services. At December 31, 2005, City National had more than $39 billion in client investment assets under management or administration (excluding the minority-owned asset managers). The Corporation’s investment advisor subsidiaries include nine majority-owned asset management firms and minority interests in two additional asset management firms. The Bank also advises and makes available mutual funds under the name of CNI Charter Funds.

At December 31, 2005, the Company had 2,539 full-time equivalent employees.

Competition

There is significant competition among commercial banks and other financial institutions in the Corporation’s market areas. California and New York are both highly competitive environments for

2




banking and other financial organizations providing private and business banking and wealth management services. The Bank faces competitive credit and pricing pressure as it competes with other banks and financial organizations. The Company’s performance is also influenced by California’s economy. As a result of the GLB Act, the Corporation also competes with other providers of financial services such as money market mutual funds, securities firms, credit unions, insurance companies and other financial services companies. Furthermore, interstate banking legislation has eroded the geographic constraints on the financial services industry.

Our ability to compete effectively is due to our provision of personalized services resulting from management’s knowledge and awareness of its clients and its market areas of California and New York. We believe this relationship approach and knowledge provide a business advantage in providing high client satisfaction and serving the small to mid-sized businesses, entrepreneurs, professionals and other individuals that comprise the Company’s customer base. In addition, our ability to compete depends on our ability to continue to attract and retain our senior management and other key colleagues.

Economic Conditions, Government Policies, Legislation, and Regulation

The Company’s profitability, like most financial institutions, is highly dependent on interest rate differentials. In general, the difference between the interest rates paid by the Bank on interest-bearing liabilities, such as deposits and other borrowings, and the interest rates received by the Bank on its interest-earning assets, such as loans extended to its clients and securities held in its investment portfolio, comprise the major portion of the Company’s earnings. These rates are highly sensitive to many factors that are beyond the Company’s control, such as inflation, recession, and unemployment. The impact of future changes in domestic and foreign economic conditions might have on the Company cannot be predicted. See Item 1A - Risk Factors.

The Company’s business and earnings are affected by the monetary and fiscal policies of the federal government and its agencies, particularly the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve”). The Federal Reserve regulates the supply of money and credit in the United States. Among the instruments of monetary policy available to the Federal Reserve are its open-market operations in U.S. Government securities, including adjusting the required level of reserves for depository institutions subject to its reserve requirements, and varying the target federal funds and discount rates applicable to borrowings by depository institutions. The actions of the Federal Reserve in these areas influence the growth of bank loans, investments, and deposits and also affect interest rates earned on interest-earning assets and paid on interest-bearing liabilities. The nature and impact on the Company of any future changes in monetary and fiscal policies cannot be predicted.

Proposals to change the laws and regulations governing the operations and taxation of banks, bank holding companies, and other financial institutions and financial services providers are frequently introduced in the U.S. Congress, in the state legislatures, and before various regulatory agencies. The likelihood and timing of any proposals or legislation and the impact they may have on the Company cannot be determined at this time.

Supervision and Regulation

General

The Corporation, the Bank and the Corporation’s non-banking subsidiaries are subject to extensive regulation under both federal and state law. This regulation is intended primarily for the protection of depositors, the deposit insurance fund, and the banking system as a whole, and not for the protection of shareholders of the Corporation. Set forth below is a summary description of the significant laws and regulations applicable to the Corporation and the Bank. The description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable laws and regulations.

3




Regulatory Agencies

The Corporation is a legal entity separate and distinct from the Bank and its other subsidiaries. As a financial holding company and a bank holding company, the Corporation is regulated under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended (the “BHC Act”), and is subject to supervision, regulation and inspection by the Federal Reserve.

The Bank, as a national banking association, is subject to broad federal regulation and oversight extending to all its operations by the Office of Comptroller of the Currency (“OCC”), its primary regulator, and also by the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

The Corporation’s non-bank subsidiaries are also subject to regulation by the Federal Reserve Board and other federal and state agencies. Under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (“Advisers Act”), investment advisers who manage $25 million or more in client assets or who act as an adviser to a registered investment company, such as our asset management firms, must register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). City National Securities, Inc. (“CNS”) is regulated by the SEC, the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (“NASD”) and state securities regulators.

The Corporation

In general, the BHC Act limits the business of bank holding companies to banking, managing or controlling banks and other activities that the Federal Reserve Board has determined to be so closely related to banking as to be a proper incident thereto. As a result of the GLB Act, which amended the BHC Act, bank holding companies that are financial holding companies may engage in any activity, or acquire and retain the shares of a company engaged in any activity, that is either (i) financial in nature or incidental to such financial activity (as determined by the Federal Reserve Board in consultation with the OCC) or (ii) complementary to a financial activity and that does not pose a substantial risk to the safety and soundness of depository institutions or the financial system generally (as solely determined by the Federal Reserve Board). Activities that are financial in nature include securities underwriting and dealing, insurance underwriting and agency, and making merchant banking investments.

If a bank holding company seeks to engage in the broader range of activities that are permitted under the BHC Act for financial holding companies, (i) all of its depository institution subsidiaries must be “well capitalized” and “well managed” and (ii) it must file a declaration with the Federal Reserve Board that it elects to be a “financial holding company.” A depository institution subsidiary is considered to be “well capitalized” if it satisfies the requirements for this status discussed in the section captioned “Capital Adequacy and Prompt Corrective Action,” included elsewhere in this item. A depository institution subsidiary is considered “well managed” if it received a composite rating and management rating of at least “satisfactory” in its most recent examination. In addition, the subsidiary depository institution must have received a rating of at least “satisfactory” in its most recent examination under the Community Reinvestment Act. (See the section captioned “Community Reinvestment Act” included elsewhere in this item.)  The Corporation’s declaration to become a financial holding company was declared effective by the Federal Reserve Board on July 15, 2005.

Financial holding companies that do not continue to meet all of the requirements for such status will, depending on which requirement they fail to meet, face not being able to undertake new activities or acquisitions that are financial in nature, or losing their ability to continue those activities that are not generally permissible for bank holding companies.  In addition, failure to satisfy conditions prescribed by the Federal Reserve to correct any such requirements could result in orders to divest banking subsidiaries or to cease engaging in activities other than those closely related to banking under the BHC Act.

The BHC Act generally limits acquisitions by bank holding companies that are not qualified as financial holding companies to commercial banks and companies engaged in activities that the Federal

4




Reserve Board has determined to be so closely related to banking as to be a proper incident thereto. Financial holding companies like the Corporation are also permitted to acquire companies engaged in activities that are financial in nature and in activities that are incidental and complementary to financial activities.

The BHC Act, the Federal Bank Merger Act, and other federal and state statutes regulate acquisitions of commercial banks. The BHC Act requires the prior approval of the Federal Reserve Board for the direct or indirect acquisition of more than 5.0% of the voting shares of a commercial bank or its parent holding company. Under the Federal Bank Merger Act, the prior approval of the OCC is required for a national bank to merge with another bank or purchase the assets or assume the deposits of another bank. In reviewing applications seeking approval of merger and acquisition transactions, the bank regulatory authorities will consider, among other things, the competitive effect and public benefits of the transactions, the capital position of the combined organization, the applicant’s performance record under the Community Reinvestment Act (see the section captioned “Community Reinvestment Act” included elsewhere in this item) and fair housing laws and the effectiveness of the subject organizations in combating money laundering activities.

Source of Strength Doctrine

Under Federal Reserve regulations, a bank holding company is required to serve as a source of financial and managerial strength to its subsidiary banks and may not conduct its operations in an unsafe or unsound manner. Under this “source of strength doctrine,” a bank holding company is expected to stand ready to use its available resources to provide adequate capital funds to its subsidiary banks during periods of financial stress or adversity, and to maintain resources and the capacity to raise capital that it can commit to its subsidiary banks. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve has the right to order a bank holding company to terminate any activity that the Federal Reserve believes is a serious risk to the financial safety, soundness or stability of any subsidiary bank.

The Bank

The OCC has extensive enforcement authority over all national banks, including the Bank. If, as a result of an examination of a bank, the OCC determines that the financial condition, capital resources, asset quality, earnings prospects, management, liquidity, or other aspects of the bank’s operations are unsatisfactory or that the bank or its management is violating or has violated any law or regulation, various remedies are available to the OCC. These remedies include the power to enjoin “unsafe or unsound” practices, to require affirmative action to correct any conditions resulting from any violation or practice, to issue an administrative order that can be judicially enforced, to direct an increase in capital, to restrict the growth of the bank, to assess civil monetary penalties, to remove officers and directors, and ultimately to terminate the bank’s deposit insurance.

The OCC, as well as other federal agencies, has adopted regulations and guidelines establishing safety and soundness standards, including but not limited to such matters as loan underwriting and documentation, internal controls and audit systems, interest rate risk exposure, asset quality and earnings and compensation and other employee benefits.

Various other requirements and restrictions under the laws of the United States affect the operations of the Bank. Statutes and regulations relate to many aspects of the Bank’s operations, including reserves against deposits, ownership of deposit accounts, interest rates payable on deposits, loans, investments, mergers and acquisitions, borrowings, dividends, locations of branch offices, and capital requirements.

Anti-Money Laundering

A major focus of governmental policy on financial institutions in recent years has been aimed at combating money laundering and terrorist financing. The Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 (“BSA”) and subsequent laws and regulations require the Bank to take steps to prevent the use of the Bank or its systems from facilitating the flow of illegal or illicit money and to file suspicious activity reports. Those requirements include ensuring effective Board and management oversight, establishing policies and procedures, developing effective monitoring and reporting capabilities, ensuring adequate training and establishing a comprehensive internal audit of BSA compliance activities. The USA Patriot Act of 2001 (“Patriot Act”) significantly expanded the anti-money laundering (“AML”) and financial transparency laws and regulations by imposing significant new compliance and due diligence obligations, creating new crimes and penalties and expanding the extra-territorial jurisdiction of the United States. Regulations promulgated under the Patriot Act impose various requirements on financial institutions, such as standards for verifying customer identification at account opening and maintaining expanded records (including “Know Your Customer” and “Enhanced Due Diligence” practices) and other obligations to maintain appropriate policies, procedures and controls to aid the process of preventing, detecting, and reporting money laundering and terrorist financing. The Patriot Act also applies BSA procedures to broker-dealers. An institution subject to the Patriot Act must provide AML training to employees, designate an AML compliance officer and annually audit the AML program to assess its effectiveness. The OCC continues to issue regulations and new guidance with respect to the application and requirements of BSA and AML.

Dividends and Other Transfers of Funds

The Corporation is a legal entity separate and distinct from the Bank. Dividends from the Bank constitute the principal source of income to the Corporation. The Bank is subject to various statutory and regulatory restrictions on its ability to pay dividends to the Corporation. Under such restrictions, at December 31, 2005, the Bank could have paid dividends of $300.7 million to the Corporation without obtaining prior approval of its banking regulators. In addition, federal bank regulatory authorities can prohibit the Bank from paying dividends, depending upon the Bank’s financial condition, if such payment is deemed to constitute an unsafe or unsound practice. The appropriate federal regulatory authorities have indicated that paying dividends that deplete a bank’s capital base to an inadequate level would be an unsafe and unsound banking practice and that banking organizations should generally pay dividends only out of current operating earnings.

Federal law limits the ability of the Bank to extend credit to the Corporation or its other affiliates, to invest in stock or other securities thereof, to take such securities as collateral for loans, and to purchase assets from the Corporation or other affiliates. These restrictions prevent the Corporation and such other affiliates from borrowing from the Bank unless the loans are secured by marketable obligations of designated amounts. Further, such secured loans and investments by the Bank to or in the Corporation or to or in any other affiliate are limited individually to 10.0 percent of the Bank’s capital and surplus and in the aggregate to 20.0 percent of the Bank’s capital and surplus. See “Note 11 to Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” on page A-26 of this report.

Federal law also provides that extensions of credit and other transactions between the Bank and the Corporation or one of its non-bank subsidiaries must be on terms and conditions, including credit standards, that are substantially the same or at least as favorable to the Bank as those prevailing at the time for comparable transactions involving other non-affiliated companies, or, in the absence of comparable transactions, on terms and conditions, including credit standards, that in good faith would be offered to, or would apply to, non-affiliated companies. Further, a bank holding company and its subsidiaries are prohibited from engaging in certain tie-in arrangements in connection with any extension of credit, lease or sale of property, or furnishing of services.

Capital Adequacy and Prompt Corrective Action

Each federal banking regulatory agency has adopted risk-based capital regulations under which a banking organization’s capital is compared to the risk associated with its operations for both transactions reported on the balance sheet as assets as well as transactions which are off-balance sheet items, such as letters of credit and recourse arrangements. Under the capital regulations, the nominal dollar amounts of assets and the balance sheet equivalent amounts of off-balance sheet items are multiplied by one of several risk adjustment percentages, which range from 0 percent for asset categories with low credit risk, such as certain U.S. Treasury securities, to 100 percent for asset categories with relatively high credit risk, such as commercial loans.

In addition to the risk-based capital guidelines, federal banking regulatory agencies require banking organizations to maintain a minimum amount of Tier 1 capital to total assets, referred to as the leverage ratio. For a banking organization rated composite 1 under the “Composite Uniform Financial Institutions Rating System (CAMELS)” for banks, which indicates the lowest level of supervisory concern of the five categories used by the federal banking agencies to rate banking organizations (“5” being the highest level of supervisory concern), the minimum leverage ratio is 3 percent. For all banking organizations other than those rated composite 1 under the CAMELS system, the minimum leverage ratio is 4 percent. Banking organizations with supervisory, financial, operational, or managerial weaknesses, as well as organizations that are anticipating or experiencing significant growth, are expected to maintain capital ratios above the minimum levels. In addition to these uniform risk-based capital guidelines and leverage ratios that apply across the industry, the federal banking agencies have the discretion to set individual minimum capital requirements for specific institutions at rates significantly above the minimum guidelines and ratios.

At December 31, 2005, the Corporation and the Bank each exceeded the required risk-based capital ratios for classification as “well capitalized” as well as the required minimum leverage ratios. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis—Balance Sheet Analysis—Capital” on page 58 of this report.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Act requires federal bank regulatory agencies to take “prompt corrective action” with respect to FDIC-insured depository institutions that do not meet minimum capital requirements. A depository institution’s treatment for purposes of the prompt corrective action provisions will depend on how its capital levels compare to various capital measures and certain other factors, as established by regulation.

The existing U.S. federal bank regulatory agencies’ risk-based capital guidelines are based upon the 1988 capital accord (Basel I) of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (“BIS”). In June 2004, BIS issued a revised framework for measuring capital adequacy (“Basel II”) including setting capital requirements for operational risk and refining the existing capital requirements for credit risk and market risk. Basel II promotes risk management practices and includes a greater use of assessments of risk provided by banks’ internal systems as inputs to capital calculations. Operational risk is defined to mean the risk of direct or indirect loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems in connection with external events. Regulations for compliance with Basel II in the United States and a timeline for implementation are being prepared by federal regulators. It is intended that only larger bank holding companies will be required to adopt the Basel II standards.

In October 2005, the Federal Reserve issued proposed revisions to Basel I, known as Basel IA, which set forth potential revisions to the U.S. risk-based capital rules for banking organizations. Basel IA would apply more widely to banks, bank holding companies and savings associations than Basel II and is intended to align risk-based capital requirements with the risk inherent in various exposures. The Corporation continues to monitor and analyze both Basel IA and Basel II and their implementation, including what effect the new capital requirements of Basel IA and/or Basel II may have on the Corporation’s minimum capital requirements and on its risk management policies.

Premiums for Deposit Insurance

The Bank’s deposit accounts are insured by the Bank Insurance Fund (“BIF”), as administered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”), up to the maximum permitted by law. Insurance of deposits may be terminated by the FDIC upon a finding that the institution has engaged in unsafe or unsound practices, is in an unsafe or unsound condition to continue operations, or has violated any applicable law, regulation, rule, order, or condition imposed by the FDIC or the institution’s primary regulator.

The FDIC charges an annual assessment for the insurance of deposits, which as of December 31, 2005 ranged from 0 to 27 cents per $100 of insured deposits, based on the risk a particular institution poses to its deposit insurance fund. The risk classification is based on an institution’s capital group and supervisory subgroup assignment. An institution’s capital group is based on the FDIC’s determination of whether the institution is well capitalized, adequately capitalized, or less than adequately capitalized. An institution’s supervisory subgroup assignment is based on the FDIC’s assessment of the financial condition of the institution and the probability that FDIC intervention or other corrective action will be required. In addition to its normal deposit insurance premium as a member of the BIF, the Bank must pay an additional premium toward the retirement of the Financing Corporation bonds (“FICO Bonds”) issued in the 1980s to assist in the recovery of the savings and loan industry. In 2005, this premium was approximately 1.4 cents per $100 of insured deposits.

Interstate Banking and Branching

The Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Act permits banks and bank holding companies from any state to acquire banks located in any other state, subject to certain conditions, including certain nationwide and state-imposed concentration limits. The Company also has the ability, subject to certain restrictions, to acquire branches outside its home state by acquisition or merger. The establishment of new interstate branches is also possible in those states with laws that expressly permit de novo branching. Interstate branches are subject to certain laws of the states in which they are located. In December 2002, the Company purchased an existing branch in New York and opened a private banking facility. From time to time, the Company may engage in additional interstate branch acquisitions.

Community Reinvestment Act

Under the Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”), the Bank has a continuing and affirmative obligation consistent with safe and sound banking practices to help meet the credit needs of its entire community, including low and moderate income neighborhoods. CRA does not establish specific lending requirements or programs for financial institutions nor does it limit an institution’s discretion to develop the types of products and services that it believes are best suited to its particular community, consistent with CRA. CRA generally requires the federal banking agencies to evaluate the record of a financial institution in meeting the credit needs of its local communities and to take that record into account in its evaluation of certain applications by such institution, such as applications to grant charters, branches and other deposit facilities, relocations, mergers, consolidations and acquisitions or engage in certain activities pursuant to the GLB Act. An unsatisfactory rating may be the basis for denying the application. Based on the most current examination report dated January 13, 2003, the Bank was rated “satisfactory”.

Consumer Protection Laws

The Company is subject to a number of federal and state laws designed to protect borrowers and promote lending to various sectors of the economy and population. These laws include the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Truth in Lending Act, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and various state law counterparts.

8




In addition, federal law and certain state laws (including California) currently contain customer privacy protection provisions. These provisions limit the ability of banks and other financial institutions to disclose non-public information about consumers to affiliated companies and non-affiliated third parties. These rules require disclosure of privacy policies to customers and, in some circumstance, allow consumers to prevent disclosure of certain personal information to affiliates or non-affiliated third parties by means of  “opt out” or “opt-in” authorizations. Pursuant to the GLB Act and certain state laws (including California) companies are required to notify clients of security breaches resulting in unauthorized access to their personal information.

Securities and Exchange Commission

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (“SOX”) of 2002 imposed significant new responsibilities on publicly-held companies such as the Corporation, particularly in the area of corporate governance. The Company, like other public companies, has reviewed and reinforced its internal controls and financial reporting procedures in response to the various requirements of SOX and implementing regulations issued by the SEC and the New York Stock Exchange. The Company always emphasized best practices in corporate governance and has continued to do so in compliance with these new legal requirements, which are intended to enable stockholders to more easily and efficiently monitor the performance of companies and directors.

The SEC regulations applicable to the Company’s investment advisers cover all aspects of the investment advisory business, including compliance requirements, limitations on fees, record-keeping, reporting and disclosure requirements and general anti-fraud prohibitions.

Our management believes these forward-looking statements are reasonable. However, you should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements, since they are based on current expectations. Actual results may differ materially from those currently expected or anticipated. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. By their nature, forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. These statements speak only as of the date they are made. The Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect the impact of circumstances or events that arise after the date the forward-looking statements are made or to update earnings guidance including the factors that influence earnings. A number of factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict, could cause future results to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. These factors include, without limitation, the significant factors set forth below.

Factors That May Affect Future Results

Changes in interest rates affect our profitability.   We derive our income mainly from the difference or “spread” between the interest earned on loans, securities, and other interest-earning assets, and interest paid on deposits, borrowings, and other interest-bearing liabilities. In general, the wider the spread, the more we earn. When market rates of interest change, the interest we receive on our assets and the interest we pay on our liabilities fluctuate. This causes our spread to increase or decrease and affects our net interest income. In addition, interest rates affect how much money we lend, and changes in interest rates may negatively affect deposit growth.

Significant changes in banking laws or regulations could materially affect our business.   The banking industry is subject to extensive federal and state regulations, and significant new laws or changes in, or repeals of, existing laws may cause results to differ materially. Also, federal monetary policy,

11




particularly as implemented through the Federal Reserve System, significantly affects our credit conditions, primarily through open market operations in U.S. government securities, the discount rate for member bank borrowing, and bank reserve requirements. A material change in these conditions would affect our results. Parts of our business are also subject to federal and state securities laws and regulations. Significant changes in these laws and regulations would also affect our business. For further discussion of the regulation of financial services, see “Supervision and Regulation”  and the discussion under Item 1, Business, “Economic Conditions, Government Policies, Legislation and Regulation.”

Increased competition from financial service companies and other companies that offer banking services could negatively impact our business.   Increased competition in our market may result in reduced loans and deposits. Ultimately, we may not be able to compete successfully against current and future competitors. Many competitors offer the banking services that we offer in our service area. These competitors include national, regional, and community banks. We also face competition from many other types of financial institutions, including, without limitation, savings and loans, finance companies, brokerage firms, insurance companies, credit unions, mortgage banks, and other financial intermediaries. In addition, technological advances and the growth of e-commerce have made it possible for non-depository institutions to offer products and services that were traditionally offered only by banks.

We also face competition for talent. Our success depends, in large part, on our ability to hire and keep key people. Competition for the best people in most businesses in which we engage can be intense. If we are unable to attract and retain talented people, our business could suffer.

Our results would be adversely affected if we suffered higher than expected losses on our loans due to real estate cycles or other economic events.   We assume risk from the possibility that we will suffer losses because borrowers, guarantors, and related parties fail to perform under the terms of their loans. We try to minimize this risk by adopting and implementing what we believe are effective underwriting and credit policies and procedures, including how we establish and review the allowance for credit losses. We assess the likelihood of nonperformance, track loan performance, and diversify our credit portfolio. Those policies and procedures may still not prevent unexpected losses that could adversely affect our results

The Company continually monitors changes in the economy, particularly housing prices and unemployment rates. We also monitor the value of collateral for loans made by us, such as real estate. A decline in value of such collateral would in turn reduce clients’ borrowing power and reduce the value of assets associated with our existing loans.

General business and economic conditions may significantly affect our earnings.   Our business and earnings are sensitive to general business and economic conditions. These conditions include the slope of the yield curve, inflation, the money supply, the value of the U.S. dollar as compared to foreign currencies, fluctuations in both debt and equity markets, and the strength of the U.S. economy and the local economies in which we conduct business. Changes in these conditions may adversely affect demand for our products and services. A prolonged economic downturn could increase the number of customers who become delinquent or default on their loans. An increase in delinquencies or defaults could result in a higher level of nonperforming assets, charge-offs and provision for loan losses, which could adversely affect our earnings.

Negative public opinion could damage our reputation and adversely affect our earnings.   Reputational risk, or the risk to our earnings and capital from negative public opinion, is inherent in our business. Negative public opinion can result from the actual or perceived manner in which we conduct our business activities, including activities in our private and business banking operations and investment and trust operations; our management of actual or potential conflicts of interest and ethical issues; and our protection of confidential customer information. Negative public opinion can adversely affect our ability to keep and attract customers and can expose us to litigation and regulatory action. We take steps to

12




minimize reputation risk in the way we conduct our business activities and deal with our customers and communities.

Item 1B—Unresolved Staff Comments

The Company has received no written comments regarding its periodic or current reports from the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission that were issued 180 days or more preceding the end of its 2005 fiscal year and that remain unresolved.

Item 2.        Properties

The Company has its principal offices in the City National Center, 400 North Roxbury Drive, Beverly Hills, California 90210, which the Company owns and occupies. The property has a market value in excess of its depreciated value included in the Company’s financial statements. As of December 31, 2005, the Bank owned one other banking office property in Riverside, California. The Company also actively maintains operations in 55 banking offices and certain other properties.

The Bank leases approximately 386,654 rentable square feet of commercial office space in downtown Los Angeles in the office tower located at 555 S. Flower Street and plaza building at 525 S. Flower Street, renamed “City National Plaza” in January 2005. The Bank commenced occupancy in the south office tower (named “City National Tower”) in the third quarter of 2004. City National Tower serves as the Bank’s new administrative center, bringing together more than 24 departments, from Cash Management, Deposit Services and Finance to Human Resources, Legal, Compliance, Community Reinvestment and select areas of Wealth Management Services. In 2005, the Bank relocated its banking office previously located in the nearby Library Tower banking office to the newly renovated 6,600-square-foot three-story plaza building that is located adjacent to City National Tower. City National Tower and the plaza banking office together form the Company’s expanded Downtown Los Angeles Regional Center, offering extensive private and business banking and wealth management capabilities.

The remaining banking offices and other properties are leased by the Bank. Total annual rental payments (exclusive of operating charges and real property taxes) are approximately $25 million, with lease expiration dates for office facilities ranging from 2006 to 2020, exclusive of renewal options.

Item 3.        Legal Proceedings

The Corporation and its subsidiaries are defendants in various pending lawsuits. Based on present knowledge, management, including in-house counsel, does not believe that the outcome of such lawsuits will have a material adverse effect upon the Company.

The Corporation is not aware of any material proceedings to which any director, officer, or affiliate of the Corporation, any owner of record or beneficially of more than 5 percent of the voting securities of the Corporation as of December 31, 2005, or any associate of any such director, officer, affiliate of the Corporation, or security holder is a party adverse to the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries or has a material interest adverse to the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries.

Item 4.        Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

There was no submission of matters to a vote of security holders during the fourth quarter of the year ended December 31, 2005.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

OVERVIEW

City National Corporation and subsidiaries (the Company), through its primary subsidiary, City National Bank, (the Bank) provide private and business banking services, including investment and trust services. The Bank is the second largest independent commercial bank headquartered in California. The Bank’s principal client base comprises small to mid-size businesses, entrepreneurs, professionals, and affluent individuals. For over fifty years, the Bank has served clients through relationship banking. The Bank seeks to build client relationships with a high level of personal service and tailored products through private and commercial banking teams, product specialists and investment advisors to facilitate clients’ use, where appropriate, of multiple services and products offered by the Company. The Company offers a broad range of lending, deposit, cash management, international banking and other products and services. The Company also lends, invests and provides services in accordance with its Community Reinvestment Act commitment. Through the Company’s various asset management firms, subsidiaries of the Corporation, and Wealth Management Services, a division of the Bank, the Company offers 1) investment management and advisory services and brokerage services, including portfolio management, securities trading and asset management, 2) personal and business trust and investment services, including employee benefit trust services, 401(k) and defined benefit plans and 3) estate and financial planning and custodial services. The Bank also advises and markets mutual funds under the name of CNI Charter Funds.

The Corporation is the holding company for the Bank. References to the “Company” mean the Corporation and its subsidiaries including the Bank. The financial information presented herein includes the accounts of the Corporation, its non-bank subsidiaries, the Bank, and the Bank’s wholly-owned subsidiaries. All material transactions between these entities are eliminated.

See “Cautionary Statement for Purposes of the “Safe Harbor’ Provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995,” on page 59 in connection with “forward-looking” statements included in this report.

Over the last three years, the Company’s assets, loans, and deposits have grown by 23 percent, 16 percent, and 23 percent, respectively. The growth primarily reflects the successful sales efforts of the Company’s colleagues, but was also augmented by a Bank acquisition in that period, as described below. The Corporation has not made any acquisitions since 2003 but regularly evaluates, and holds discussions with, various potential acquisition candidates.

On April 1, 2003, the Corporation acquired Convergent Capital Management LLC, a privately held Chicago-based company, and substantially all of its asset management holdings, including its majority ownership interests in eight asset management firms and minority interests in two additional firms. Combined, these 10 firms managed assets of approximately $14.0 billion as of December 31, 2005. The purchase price was $49.0 million, comprised of cash and the assumption of approximately $7.5 million of debt. The acquisition resulted in $25.8 million in customer contract intangibles, which is being amortized over 20 years, and $21.5 million in goodwill.

CAPITAL ACTIVITY

On February 13, 2003, the Corporation issued $225.0 million of 5.125 percent Senior Notes due 2013 in a private placement. A like amount of exchange notes were subsequently registered pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 in April 2003 and 100 percent of the Senior Notes were exchanged for the registered notes in an exchange offering with the Senior Notes which closed on May 29, 2003.

On January 22, 2003, the Board of Directors authorized a one-million-share stock buyback program. The buyback was completed in 2004 at an average cost of $46.55 per share. On July 15, 2003, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of 500,000 additional shares of City National Corporation stock,

25




following completion of the Company’s January 22, 2003 buyback initiative. In 2004, 490,500 shares were repurchased under this program, and the remaining 9,500 shares were repurchased in 2005. In March 2004, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional one million shares of City National Corporation stock, to follow the completion of the July 15, 2003 buyback initiative. In 2005, 630,500 shares were repurchased at an average cost of $69.45 (including the 9,500 shares mentioned above) leaving 379,000 shares available to be repurchased. The shares purchased under the buyback programs will be reissued for acquisitions, upon the exercise of stock options, and for other general corporate purposes. In February 2006, 41,200 shares were repurchased at an average cost of $73.64 per share. At February 28, 2006, 337,800 shares were available for repurchase.

The Corporation paid dividends of $1.44 per share of common stock in 2005 and $1.28 per share of common stock in 2004. On January 18, 2006, the Board of Directors authorized a regular quarterly cash dividend on common stock at an increased rate of $0.41 per share to shareholders of record on February 1, 2006 payable on February 15, 2006. This reflects a 14 percent increase over the $0.36 per share paid in November 2005.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accounting and reporting policies of City National Corporation (the Corporation) and of the Bank and their subsidiaries conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The material estimates included in the financial statements relate to the allowance for loan losses, the reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments and the valuation of financial instruments.

Certain accounting policies involve significant judgments and assumptions by management which have a material impact on the carrying value of certain assets and liabilities; management considers such accounting policies to be critical accounting policies. The judgments and assumptions used by management are based on historical experience and other factors, which are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

Management believes the following are critical accounting policies that require the most significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements:

Accounting for securities

All securities other than trading securities are classified as available-for-sale and are valued at fair value. Unrealized gains or losses on securities available-for-sale are excluded from net income but are included in comprehensive income, net of taxes. Premiums or discounts on securities available-for-sale are amortized or accreted into income using the interest method. Realized gains or losses on sales of securities available-for-sale are recorded using the specific identification method. Trading securities are valued at fair value with any unrealized gains or losses included in income.

If available, quoted market prices provide the best indication of value. If quoted market prices were not available for fixed-maturity securities, the Company would discount the expected cash flows using market interest rates commensurate with the credit quality and maturity of the investments. Alternatively, matrix or model pricing would be used to determine an appropriate fair value. The determination of market or fair value considers various factors, including time value and volatility factors; price activity for equivalent instruments; counterparty credit quality; and the potential impact on market prices or fair value of liquidating the Company’s positions in an orderly manner over a reasonable period of time under current market conditions. Changes in assumptions could affect the fair values of investments.

26




For the substantial majority of our investments, fair values are determined based upon externally verifiable model inputs and quoted prices. All financial models that are used for updating the Company’s published financial statements or for independent risk monitoring must be validated and periodically reviewed by qualified personnel. Using this information, the Company conducts regular reviews to assess whether other-than-temporary impairment exists. Deteriorating global, regional or specific issuer-related economic conditions could adversely affect these values. The Company considers such factors as the length of time and the extent to which the market value has been less than cost. If an other-than-temporary impairment is determined to exist, the impairment charge is included in income.

Accounting for the allowance for loan losses and reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments

The Company accounts for the credit risk associated with lending activities through its allowances for loan losses, reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments and provision for credit losses. The provision is the expense recognized in the income statement to adjust the allowance and reserve to the levels deemed appropriate by management, as determined through application of the Company’s allowance methodology procedures. The provision for credit losses reflects management’s judgment of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses and the reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments. It is determined through quarterly analytical reviews of the loan and commitment portfolios and consideration of such other factors as the Company’s loan loss experience, trends in problem loans, concentrations of credit risk, underlying collateral values, and current economic conditions, as well as the results of the Company’s ongoing credit review process and that of its regulators. As conditions change, our level of provisioning and the allowance for loan losses and reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments may change.

Larger-balance, non-homogenous exposures are individually evaluated based upon the borrower’s overall financial condition, resources, and payment record; the prospects for support from any financially responsible guarantors; and, if appropriate, the realizable value of any collateral. The allowance for loan losses and the reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments attributed to these loans are established via a process that considers all available evidence, including, as appropriate, the present value of the expected future cash flows discounted using the loan’s contractual effective rate, the secondary market value of the loan and the fair value of collateral. Management also considers overall portfolio indicators, including trends in internally risk-rated exposures, classified exposures, cash-basis loans, and historical and forecasted write-offs; and a review of industry, geographic, and portfolio concentrations, including current developments within those segments. In addition, management considers the current business strategy and credit process, including credit-limit setting and compliance, credit approvals, loan underwriting criteria and loan workout procedures.

Each portfolio of smaller balance, homogeneous loans, including residential first mortgages, installment, revolving credit and most other consumer loans, is collectively evaluated for loss potential. The allowance for loan losses and reserve for off-balance sheet credit commitments for these loans is established via a process that begins with estimates of probable losses inherent in the portfolio, based upon various statistical analyses. These include migration analysis, in which historical delinquency and credit loss experience is applied to the current aging of the portfolio, as well as analyses that reflect current trends and conditions. Management also considers overall portfolio indicators, including historical credit losses, delinquent, nonperforming and classified loans, and trends in volumes and terms of loans; an evaluation of overall credit quality and the credit process, including lending policies and procedures, economic, geographical, product, and other environmental factors; and model imprecision.

The quantitative portion of the allowance for loan losses is adjusted for qualitative factors to account for imprecision and to incorporate the range of probable outcomes inherent in the estimates used for the allowance. The qualitative portion of the allowance attempts to incorporate the risks inherent in the portfolio, economic uncertainties, historical loss experience, and other subjective factors including industry trends.

27




The Company has not recorded a provision for credit losses since the second quarter of 2003. This is attributable to the continued strong credit quality of the Company’s loan portfolio, rate of loan growth, changing economic conditions and management’s ongoing assessment of the credit quality of the loan portfolio. The key indicators of the improving asset quality of the loan portfolio during the period were an improvement in credit risk ratings, a decline in nonaccrual loans and loan recoveries that exceeded loan charge-offs.

Accounting for derivatives and hedging activities

As part of its asset and liability management strategies, the Company uses interest rate swaps to reduce cash flow variability and to moderate changes in the fair value of certain fixed-rate deposits and borrowings and certain variable-rate loans. In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133 “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities,” as amended (SFAS No. 133), all derivatives are recorded on the balance sheet at their fair value. The treatment of changes in the fair value of derivatives depends on the character of the transaction.

In accordance with SFAS No. 133, the Company documents its hedge relationships, including identification of the hedging instruments and the hedged items, as well as its risk management objectives and strategies for undertaking the hedge transaction at the time the derivative contract is executed. This includes designating each derivative contract as either (i) a “fair value hedge” which is a hedge of a recognized asset or liability, (ii) a “cash flow hedge” which hedges a forecasted transaction or the variability of the cash flows to be received or paid related to a recognized asset or liability or (iii) an “undesignated hedge”, a derivative instrument not designated as a hedging instrument whose change in fair value is recognized directly in the consolidated statement of income. All derivatives designated as fair value or cash flow hedges are linked to specific hedged items or to groups of specific assets and liabilities on the balance sheet. The Company did not have any undesignated hedges during 2005 or 2004.

Both at inception and at least quarterly thereafter, the Company assesses whether the derivatives used in hedging transactions are highly effective (as defined in SFAS 133) in offsetting changes in either the fair value or cash flows of the hedged item. Retroactive effectiveness is assessed, as well as the continued expectation that the hedge will remain effective prospectively.

For cash flow hedges, in which derivatives hedge the variability of cash flows (interest payments) on loans that are indexed to U.S. dollar LIBOR or the Bank’s prime interest rate, the effectiveness is assessed prospectively at the inception of the hedge, and prospectively and retrospectively at least quarterly thereafter. Ineffectiveness of the cash flow hedges is measured on a quarterly basis using the hypothetical derivative method. For cash flow hedges, the effective portion of the changes in the derivatives’ fair value is not included in current earnings but is reported as other comprehensive income. When the cash flows associated with the hedged item are realized, the gain or loss included in other comprehensive income is recognized on the same line in the consolidated statement of income as the hedged item, i.e. included in interest income on loans. Any ineffective portion of the changes of fair value of cash flow hedges would be recognized immediately in other noninterest income in the consolidated statement of income.

For fair value hedges, in which derivatives hedge the fair value of certain certificates of deposits, subordinated debt and other long-term debt, the interest rate swaps are structured so that all key terms of the swaps match those of the underlying debt transactions, therefore ensuring hedge effectiveness at inception. On a quarterly basis, fair value hedges are analyzed to ensure that the key terms of the hedged items and hedging instruments remain unchanged, and the hedging counterparties are evaluated to ensure that there are no adverse developments regarding counterparty default, therefore ensuring continuous effectiveness. For fair-value hedges, the effective portion of the changes in the fair value of derivatives is reflected in current earnings, on the same line in the consolidated statement of income as the related hedged item. The ineffective portion, if any, of the changes in the fair value of these hedges (the

28




differences between changes in the fair value of the interest rate swaps and the hedged items) would be recognized immediately in other noninterest income in the consolidated statement of income.

Fair values are determined from verifiable third-party sources that have considerable experience with the interest-rate swap market. For both fair value and cash flow hedges, the periodic accrual of interest receivable or payable on interest rate swaps is recorded as an adjustment to net interest income for the hedged items.

The Company discontinues hedge accounting prospectively when (i) a derivative is no longer highly effective in offsetting changes in the fair value or cash flows of a hedged item, (ii) a derivative expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, (iii) a derivative is un-designated as a hedge, because it is unlikely that a forecasted transaction will occur; or (iv) the Company determines that designation of a derivative as a hedge is no longer appropriate. If a derivative instrument in a fair value hedge is terminated or the hedge designation removed, the previous adjustments to the carrying amount of the hedged asset or liability are subsequently accounted for in the same manner as other components of the carrying amount of that asset or liability. For interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, such adjustments are amortized into earnings over the remaining life of the respective asset or liability. If a derivative instrument in a cash flow hedge is terminated or the hedge designation is removed, related amounts reported in other comprehensive income are reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the hedged forecasted transaction affects earnings.

Accounting for stock options

The Company grants stock options and restricted stock to employees in order to leverage the success of the Company by providing a means of attracting, motivating, retaining, and rewarding key employees. The stock option plans are authorized and administered by the Compensation, Nominating, & Governance Committee of the Board of Directors, (“the Committee”). Awards may be granted to eligible employees, and shall not exceed 500,000 shares to an employee during any one year period as determined by the Committee. Non-qualified and incentive options are issued at the fair market value of the common stock on the grant date. Each option vests evenly over a four year period, beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date, and has an option term of 10 years, after which the option expires. Unvested options are forfeited upon termination of employment, except in the case of the retirement of a retirement-age employee for options granted prior to January 31, 2006, or upon the death of an employee, at which point the remaining unvested options are automatically vested.

Through 2005, the Company has applied APB Opinion No. 25 in accounting for the stock option plans and, accordingly, no compensation cost has been recognized for its stock options in the financial statements. As a practice, the Corporation’s stock option grants are such that the exercise price equals the current market price of the common stock. Had the Company determined compensation cost based on the fair value at the grant date for its stock options under SFAS No. 123 using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, the Company’s proforma net income would have been reduced to the proforma amounts indicated in Note 1 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

The Black-Scholes option-pricing model requires assumptions about the expected lives of the options that is based upon the pattern of exercise of options granted by the Corporation in the past; volatility based on changes in the price of the Corporation’s common stock during the past 6 years, as measured monthly; the dividend yield and a risk-free investment rate. Actual dividend payments will depend upon a number of factors, including future financial results, and may differ substantially from the assumption. The risk-free investment rate is based on the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasury Notes on the grant date.

The actual value, if any, which a grantee may realize will depend upon the difference between the option exercise price and the market price of the Corporation’s common stock on the date of exercise.

29




Since 2003, stock-based compensation performance awards granted to colleagues of the Company have included restricted stock grants and fewer stock options. This reduced the total number of shares awarded but better aligned the interests of shareholders and colleagues. Twenty-five percent of the restricted stock awards vest two years from the date of grant, then twenty-five percent vests on each of the next three consecutive grant anniversary dates. The portion of the market value of the restricted stock related to current service is recognized as compensation expense. The portion of the market value of the restricted stock relating to future service is included in deferred equity compensation and will be amortized over the remaining vesting period on a straight-line basis. The Company recorded $4,111,135 in expense for restricted stock awards in 2005 compared to $3,445,007 in 2004.

In December 2004, the FASB issued SFAS No. 123 (revised) (“SFAS No. 123R”), “Share-Based Payment”. SFAS No. 123R eliminates the intrinsic value method under APB 25 as an alternative method of accounting for stock-based awards. SFAS No. 123R also revises the fair value-based method of accounting for share-based payment liabilities, forfeitures and modifications of stock-based awards and clarifies SFAS No. 123’s guidance in several areas, including measuring fair value, classifying an award as equity or as a liability and attributing compensation cost to reporting periods. SFAS No. 123R amends SFAS No. 95, “Statement of Cash Flows” to require that excess tax benefits be reported as a financing cash inflow rather than as reduction of taxes paid, which is included in operating cash flows.

The Company is required to adopt SFAS No. 123R for the period beginning January 1, 2006 using either a modified version of prospective application or a modified version of retrospective application. The Company adopted SFAS No. 123R using the modified prospective method with an effective date of January 1, 2006. This will have the effect of increasing compensation expense in 2006 and reducing net income per share by approximately $0.07 a share.

2005 HIGHLIGHTS

·       Consolidated net income for 2005 was $234.7 million, or $4.60 per diluted common share, compared with $206.3 million, or $4.04 per diluted common share, in 2004. Net income increased 14 percent, primarily attributable to strong loan growth, an expanding net interest margin, and growth in our wealth management business. Nonaccrual loans for 2005 fell to $14.4 million, a 58.4 percent decline from December 31, 2004. Net loan recoveries were $9.3 million in 2005; compared to net loan charge-offs of $5.7 million in 2004.

·       Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income of $625 million was up 12 percent from 2004, due primarily to increasing loan volume and higher interest rates.

·       No provision for credit losses was recorded for the years ended December 31, 2005 and December 31, 2004.

·       Noninterest income reached $208 million in 2005, up 13 percent from the previous year. It accounts for 25 percent of the Company’s revenue. The increase was due largely to the continued growth of the Company’s wealth management business and higher international services fees.

·       The Company’s effective tax rate was 37.7 percent for the year, compared to a 37.4 percent rate in 2004.

·       Total assets at December 31, 2005 reached $14.6 billion, up 2 percent from the end of 2004 and 1 percent from the third quarter of 2005.

·       Total average assets increased to $14.2 billion in 2005 from $13.4 billion in 2004, an increase of $0.8 billion, or 6 percent.

30




·       The return on average assets was 1.66 percent for 2005 compared with 1.54 percent for 2004. The return on average shareholders’ equity increased to 16.89 percent in 2005 from 16.34 percent for the prior year.

·       Average securities for 2005 were up 10 percent from 2004. The average duration of the total available-for-sale securities portfolio at both December 31, 2005 and December 31, 2004 was 3.0 years.

·       Average loan balances grew 9 percent to $8.9 billion.

·       Average deposits totaled $11.8 billion, up 4 percent from 2004.

OUTLOOK

Management currently expects earnings per share to grow at a rate of between 9 percent and 12 percent in 2006. This guidance reflects the estimated 7-cent-per-share impact of expensing stock options.

Average loans are expected to grow at a higher rate than they did in 2005, while average deposits are expected to grow at a rate similar to last year. The average net interest margin for 2006 may show some modest expansion. Noninterest income and noninterest expense are expected to grow at lower rates than in 2005. Management expects to make a provision for loan losses in 2006, depending on numerous factors related to asset quality, charge-offs, and the economic environment. It also expects the Company’s effective tax rate to be slightly higher in 2006 than in 2005.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income is the difference between interest income (which includes yield-related loan fees) and interest expense. Net interest income on a fully taxable-equivalent basis expressed as a percentage of average total earning assets is referred to as the net interest margin, which represents the average net effective yield on earning assets.
