Going forward, the bank intends to focus on growing its wealth management business. During the first quarter earnings call, Regions Financial’s CEO Grayson Hall said, “Going forward, along with organic growth, we will continue to target lift-out and acquisition opportunities in this important business. This will also allow us to round out our product offerings and geographic coverage and will drive incremental revenue growth.”
