Performance of other segments

EVR’s revenue from commissions and fees stood at $56.6 million in 4Q17 and fell 10% in 4Q17. The fall was due to institutional clients who are moving to passive investing due to low levels of market volatility.

Underwriting fees were $15.7 million in 4Q17, a 33% rise from 3Q17. The increase was due to underwriting transactions. The company undertook a total of 18 transactions.

Expenses

Compensation expense of $266.3 million was a 2% rise compared to 4Q16. The rise was due to an increased headcount requirement, which included senior hires. Its compensation ratio was 51.3% compared to 61.1% in 4Q16. The fall in ratio was basically due to rising revenues.

Non-compensation expense was $74.2 million, a 10% rise compared to 4Q16. The increase was due to increased personnel in most parts of the business.

EVR has a market capitalization of $4 billion. Its peers Morgan Stanley (MS), Citigroup (C), and Bank of America (BAC) have market capitalizations of $94.3 billion, $194.8 billion, and $312 billion, respectively.
