Speaking at an investor conference held by bank stock analysts at Goldman Sachs, Gerspach said the decline is mostly from lower trading in fixed income and compares with an especially strong period in 2016.

On Tuesday executives from JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) and Bank of American Corp (BAC.N) said their trading revenues are running about 15 percent less than a year earlier.
