Greetings, and welcome to Axos Financial Inc.'s Fiscal three 2021 Earnings Call and Webcast. [Operator Instructions]

I would now like to turn the conference over to your host, Mr. Johnny Lai, Vice President of Corporate Development and Investor Relations. Thank you. You may begin.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Johnny. Good afternoon, everyone, and thank you for joining us. I'd like to welcome everyone to Axos Financial's conference call for the third quarter of Fiscal year 2021 ended March 31, 2021. I thank you for your interest in Axos Financial and Axos Bank. We delivered another strong quarter, with positive sequential growth in ending loan balances and net interest income, net interest margin expansion and solid credit performance. The year-over-year comparison is distorted by the seasonal H&R Block tax products, which we no longer provide. Axos announced third fiscal quarter net income of $53.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, and earnings per diluted share of $0.89. Excluding net interest income and noninterest income related to the discontinued H&R Block relationship, net interest income and fee income increased by 21.9% and 43.7%, respectively, reflecting solid growth in mortgage banking and Axos Securities. Axos' return on average equity for the third quarter of 2021 was 16.12%, and the bank's efficiency ratio was 42.33%. Our tangible book value per share was $20.44 at March 31, 2021, up 17.1% from March 31, 2020. The highlights this quarter included the following: ending loan and leases increased by approximately $102 million, up 3.5% annualized from the first quarter of 2021 and up 12.9% year-over-year. Excluding mortgage warehouse, ending loan balances increased by approximately $318 million up 12.4% annualized from the first quarter of 2021. Strong originations in multifamily, commercial real estate and C&I were offset by higher payoffs in jumbo single-family loan balances. Net interest margin was 3.96% for the third quarter, up two basis points from 3.94% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Excluding the impact of H&R Block related Refund Advance, and Emerald Advance loans in the prior year's third quarter, overall net interest margin was up nine basis points year-over-year. Loan yields continue to hold up well at 5.1%, essentially flat from 5.16% in the quarter ended December 31, 2020. The cost of interest-bearing deposits is 81 basis points, down four basis points from the quarter ended December 30 -- 31st, 2020. Net interest margin for the banking business unit was 4.23% compared to 4.11% in the quarter ended December 31, 2020. PPP loan fees continue to have a negative and loan balances continue to have a negligible impact on our overall banking business unit NIM. Our efficiency ratio for the three months ended March 31, 2021, was 50.64% compared to 46.86% in the second quarter of 2021. The efficiency ratio for the banking business segment was 42.33% for the third quarter of 2021 versus 40.45% in the second quarter of 2021. The sequential increase in overall banking business efficiency was a result of higher professional service expenses related to onetime legal costs and higher marketing costs related to mortgage banking. Capital levels remained strong with [Indecipherable] leverage ratio of 9.56% at the bank and 8.99% at the holding company, both well above our regulatory requirements. On 3/31/2021, we redeemed all the outstanding 6.25% subordinated notes due February 28, 2026, representing an aggregate principal balance of $51 million. The redemption was principally funded with proceeds from the issuance of $175 million of sub-debt that was completed in September of 2020. Our credit quality remains strong with no loans in forbearance, nonperforming assets fell by 20% linked quarter, representing 1.14% of total loans and leases at March 31, 2021, compared to 1.44% at December 31, 2020.

Our focus on retaining asset-based loans with low loan to values on our balance sheet has contributed to the low loss content on the small number of loans that become delinquent. Total loan originations for the third quarter ended March 31, 2021, was $1.8 billion, down 36.8% from $2.9 billion in the year ago period. Excluding H&R Block related loans in the year ago period, total loan originations increased by 47.9% year-over-year. Q3 2021 originations were as follows: $381 million of single-family agency gain on sale production, $251 million of single-family jumbo portfolio production, $97 million of multifamily production, $46 million of commercial real estate production, $37 million of auto and unsecured consumer loan production and $956 million of C&I loan production, resulting in a net increase of $420 million. Our gain on sale mortgage banking group had another strong quarter, generating $9 million of mortgage banking income compared to $10.7 million in the second quarter of 2021 and $3 million in the corresponding quarter last year. Originations decreased by approximately 16.3% linked quarter to $381 million due to a steady increase in interest rates from the end of 2020 to March 31, 2021. The outlook for mortgage banking remains solid, although the overall industry slowdown in refinancing activity may result in either lower loan originations and/or lower margins or both relative to what we have been experiencing over the past two or three quarters. Our loan pipeline of single-family agency mortgages was $229 million at 4/22/2021. Our mortgage warehouse continued -- business continues to benefit from strong demand for agency mortgages. Ending balances in our mortgage warehouse portfolio was up significantly from $380 million in March 31, 2020. And down $217 million from the elevated 12/31/2020 balance of $1.2 billion. We continue to expand our relationships with existing mortgage warehouse customers and establish new relationships.

Our single-family warehouse business generates strong risk-adjusted returns for us and provides a countercyclical balance to our more asset sensitive commercial lending businesses. Our net interest margin for the banking business unit was 4.23% in the third quarter compared to 4.11% in the prior quarter and 4.9% in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Excluding the impact of H&R Block, our net interest margin for the banking business unit was up 12 basis points linked quarter and up 38 basis points year-over-year. On the asset side in the banking business, our loan yields continue to hold up well with average loan yields of 5.1% compared to 5.16% in the quarter ended December 31, 2020. The vast majority of our asset-based loans are variable rate loans, with 95% of all variable rate loans being at the floor as of March 31, 2021. Yields for loan originations in the quarter ended 3/31/'21 were 4.81% for jumbo single-family mortgages, 5.01% for multifamily and 5.7% for C&I loans. Approximately 48% of our loans are 51 arms with single-family and multifamily mortgages as underlying collateral. In our C&I loan book, our asset-based lending facilities and commercial specialty real estate loan portfolios have rates that adjust to an index. Of the $3.4 billion of lender finance and commercial specialty real estate loans outstanding at March 31, 2021, approximately 94% are at their floor rates. Our equipment leasing portfolio, which accounts for the remaining $120 million of C&I loans outstanding is comprised of fixed rate loans and leases. Our checking and savings and money market balances increased by approximately $3 billion from March 31, 2020, with strong growth in consumer, small business and commercial deposit accounts and balances. Our consumer checking and small business checking accounts continue to receive accolades for offering the best value and services for our customers, benefiting from our technology-enabled service models.

Ending noninterest-bearing demand deposits or $2.6 billion in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, up by approximately 19% from the prior quarter. We are making good progress in our specialty commercial and treasury management businesses, including our fiduciary services businesses. Axos Clearing continues to generate low-cost deposits that we were able to put on or off-balance sheet. Ending cash deposit balances of Axos Securities were approximately $800 million with approximately $480 million of those balances placed at other banks at March 31, 2021. Our credit quality remains solid. Annualized net charge-offs to average loans and leases was three basis points this quarter compared to three basis points in the corresponding period last year. Nonperforming assets to total assets or 114 basis points for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, down from 144 basis points in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Of our nonperforming loans, 60% are single-family mortgages where we've had historically very low realized losses. Of our nonperforming single-family mortgage loans at March 31, 2021, approximately 85% had an estimated current loan-to-value ratio at or below 70% and approximately 95% are below 80% of our best estimates of current loan to values. Given this low loan-to-value, on our single-family delinquent mortgages, we do not anticipate occurring material losses on the vast majority of these loans. Other than single-family delinquencies, the remaining delinquencies consist of two hotel loans we previously discussed, which are around $24.5 million of unpaid principal balance. We had six multifamily loans that were 30 to 59 days delinquent for a total value of around $3.1 million that are at origination LTVs of around 46% on average, one multifamily loan that is 60 to 90 days delinquent for $1 million with an origination loan-to-value of 44%.

We continue to work with borrowers to bring delinquent loans current, and we have no loans on forbearance as of March 31, 2021. Our loan loss provision for this quarter was $2.7 million compared to $8 million in December 31, 2020 quarter and $28.5 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The primary reason for the sequential decline in loan loss provisions are lower loan growth and the sequential improvement in our nonperforming loan balances. Our total allowance for loan loss was $143.8 million at March 31, 2021, which represents 1.16% of our total loans and leases. While we have seen steady improvement in the economy since COVID related restrictions have been rolled back and resilient housing values in the vast majority of markets where we lend have continued, we do not anticipate making significant changes to our loan loss provisions in calendar 2021. Approximately 95% of our loans outstanding at March 31, 2021, were collateralized by hard assets with an average loan-to-value in the 50s including $10.6 billion by real estate assets and $523 million of loans secured by commercial receivables. We continue to generate strong returns with average return on common equity of 16.12% and 18.65% in the three months ended March 31, 2021, and March 31, 2020, respectively. Our efficiency ratio for the banking business segment was 42.33% for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to 40.45% in the last quarter. We continue to invest in people, infrastructure, technology and processes in each of our businesses so that we can continue to grow at a similar percentage on our ever larger asset base. Our capital ratios remained strong with Tier one leverage to adjusted assets at 8.99% of the holding company and 9.56% of Axos Bank.

We also have access to approximately $2.8 billion of Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings, $2.6 billion in excess of $173 million we had outstanding at the end of the third quarter. Furthermore, we have $2.3 billion of liquidity available at the Federal Reserve discount window as of March 31, 2021. Our strong organic growth and returns, coupled with excess capital and Axos Financial, allows us to make opportunistic acquisitions, such as the E TRADE advisory services acquisition that we announced last week. I will discuss the strategic and financial benefits of this transaction later on the call. Our loan pipeline remains solid with approximately $1.8 billion of consolidated loans in our pipeline at March 31, 2021, consisting of $229 million of single-family agency gain on sale mortgages, $473 million of jumbo single-family mortgages, $192 million of multifamily and small balance commercial real estate term loans, $845 million of C&I and other commercial specialty real estate loans and $45 million of auto and unsecured loans. We expect to be able to grow loans in the high single digits to low double-digit percentages and maintain our net interest margin in the mid- to high end of our 3.8 to 4.0 target range for the remainder of this calendar year. Although we are above this net interest margin range at the bank currently, and we do expect to be able to lower our cost of funds significantly particularly given our recent acquisition of the AS and the runoff of our acquired book of higher rate certificates of deposits from nationwide, we anticipate that loan competition in certain segments will require us to lend at rates that would result in less margin expansion in this coming year than the reduction in our cost of funds might otherwise indicate.

Our securities businesses continue to make steady progress. Axos Clearing increased total tickets processed by almost 52% linked quarter to almost two million tickets and ending deposits grew by approximately 3% linked quarter. We signed three new correspondent Clearing clients in the December quarter and signed three new RIA clients this quarter, which will add incremental fee income and low-cost deposits with a two to three quarter lag between signing and onboarding. On prior calls and on our most recent Investor Day in 2019, we have talked about the importance of growing our securities clearing and custody business. Last week, we announced an agreement to acquire certain assets and liabilities of ETRADE advisory service, EAS as they are called. EAS is a top five RIA custodian with proprietary technology platforms that hundreds of independent RIAs and TAMS used to serve their wealthy management clients. With approximately $23 billion of assets under custody, including $1.2 billion of client cash deposits, EAS significantly increases our scale, total addressable marketing capabilities. EAS is focused on providing high-touch services to RIAs with assets under management between $50 million and $1 billion is a perfect complement to the Clearing services we provide to independent broker-dealers. We believe that our entrepreneurial culture, commitment to servicing clients with no conflict of interest and our ability to provide additional technology and banking services to RIAs, advisors and their end clients makes us a credible alternative to the largest competitors in the custody space. What makes me most excited about this transaction is with the team of custody experts who are dedicated to serving independent RIAs and turnkey asset management program managers and the liberty technology platform we are purchasing.

The EAS team headquartered in Centennial, Colorado, is comprised of approximately 180 team members, including over 50 software engineers, application and system support and other technology, infrastructure and service FTEs and over 100 client-facing operations and business strategy FTEs. Liberty is a proprietary client-facing technology platform that interfaces with a variety of third-party middle and back-office systems that RIA is used for portfolio management, tax reporting, transaction processing, marketing and client service functions. Adding a flexible technology platform and an experienced relationship management and operations team dramatically accelerates our time to scale and credibility in this business. EAS' model and market opportunities share similarities and differences with those from Axos Clearing. Independent RIAs continue to grow in number in AUM as more advisors leave wirehouses to gain greater control over their practices and enhance their economics. We believe EAS is well positioned to gain market share in this growing market as more advisors look for alternatives to large custodians. Like the Clearing business, securities custody generate significance amounts of no to low-cost deposits that become substantially more valuable as interest rates rise offsetting the effect of businesses such as mortgage banking that benefit from a lower rate environment. Client fleet deposits from Clearing and Custody also provide optionality for us as we have sole discretion in determining whether we use the deposits to fund the bank's asset growth or hold them off-balance sheet as a partner bank to optimize our capital efficiency. Deposits from the RIA Custody business will provide us with a new source of low-cost funding that can scale dramatically faster and more cost effectively than consumer deposits.

Unlike the Clearing business, where fee income is generated primarily through transaction-based ticket charges that have corresponding operating expenses, the Custody business generates both transaction-based fees and asset based fees. For example, EAS charges a custody fee-based on the amount of assets under custody. When AUC balances increase, either from growth in the net new assets from new or existing custody clients or for market appreciation, the custody fee paid to EAS also increases. In this respect, the financial model is very similar to that of asset or wealth management businesses that charge an annual management fee-based on assets under management. EAS also collects commissions from third-party mutual funds and ETF providers where advisors who custody with EAS use those mutual funds and ETFs in their investment portfolios. Finally, EAS generates transaction-based fees related to paper statements and other ancillary services. In total, EAS generates about $58 million of net revenue in 2020, with approximately half of that coming from net interest income. Going forward, depending on how much of the client deposits are held off-balance sheet at partner banks and on Axos Bank's balance sheet and the rate paid on those deposits to EAS, the net revenue from EAS will vary from year-to-year. We expect to extend offers to all EAS team members and invest to grow this business. From an operating expense perspective, about 70% of the 2020 noninterest expenses were compensation benefits and sales commissions. If you exclude some onetime expenses related to prior initiatives that E TRADE has discontinued, the annual operating expense run rate is approximately $39 million.

The operating expenses are offset largely by fee income generated from asset and transaction-based revenues. When we consider the net operating cost of the RIA Custody business and the low-cost and stable funding we are able to generate from client cash sweeps, we believe this provides us with another attractive and relatively efficient source of core deposits. We are confident that will identify cost synergies, particularly with respect to incremental costs at Axos Clearing that might otherwise have been incurred as we grow our customer -- our Clearing customer base. To be conservative, we are not assuming meaningful cost synergies in year one and only incremental cost synergies of between $1 million and $1.5 million starting in year two. This is an attractive transaction from a strategic and financial perspective. We will fund the entire $55 million cash purchase price with excess capital from the holding company. Using fairly conservative assumptions, we expect the acquisition to be at least 1% accretive in our EPS in year one and 5% accretive to our EPS in year two. Over the next few months, we'll be transitioning the business from a bank-owned custody platform to a broker-dealer platform prior to the projected calendar Q3 2021 close. We will unlock potential cost and revenue synergies, which we have not modeled in our EPS accretion and tangible earn back forecasts. Once EAS is fully integrated with Axos, we see meaningful revenue opportunities with Axos Clearing, Axos Invest and Axos Bank. We believe that the consumer technology we have developed as a front-end banking and securities platform and our account opening technology will be valuable to RIAs the custody with Axos, as they will have the benefit of partnering with us for the provision of banking products to their clients with a custodian that does not compete with them for -- with its own proprietary wealth management arm as is typical with other large custodians.

The combination of a broker-dealer compliant RIA Custody and Clearing platform and our host of white label banking products and services at our consumer and commercial bank makes us extremely excited about the long-term cross-sell potential across our entire organization. We have not modeled additional banking cross-sell opportunities into our estimated accretion numbers, however. Furthermore, the flexibility of being able to move these low-cost deposits on or off-balance sheet has the potential to increase our annual net interest margin above the 3.8 to four range or accelerate our loan growth above the low teens rate while maintaining our 3.8 to 4.0 NIM range. This transaction will require FINRA approval, and we submitted our application to FINRA last week. We continue to beta test our self-directed trading platform. The preliminary launch date will be sometime in the June quarter. Version 1.0 of our self-directed trading offering will focus on existing clients who value the simplicity and convenience of being able to see and transact across various Axos Banking and investment products through one online mobile application. More importantly, it will allow us to experiment with various pricing models and do more detailed customer segmentation with a goal of delivering a more customized client experience. It's the beginning of an ambitious and exciting journey, that would be much more cost prohibited if we did not own our own clearing company. The ability to have a direct-to-consumer managed portfolio product through our robo advisor, self-directed trading and banking should enable us over time to reduce the cost of customer acquisition, increase revenue per customer and enhance retention. We are also actively working on adding cryptocurrency custody and trading into our self-directed platform and expect that, that will be in beta launch by the end of this calendar year.

I'm more excited than ever about the opportunities we have in each of our businesses. Some of the investments we have made like mortgage banking and C&I lending are generating meaningful profits today. And others such as Axos Clearing and Axos Invest have only scratched the surface relative to their long-term potential. Our future launches of self-directed trading and cryptocurrency trading has the opportunity to drive significant consumer account growth. By operating a diversified set of lending, funding and fee-based businesses across our consumer bank, commercial bank, securities and investment subsidiaries by continuing to make improvements in our user experience and technological capabilities and creating product offerings that are cultivated through direct and indirect customer acquisition channels. We are better positioned than most to maintain consistent profitable growth, irrespective of economic, regulatory and competitive changes.

Now I'll turn the call over to Andy, who will give you additional details on our financial results.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Thanks, Greg. First, I wanted to note that in addition to our press release, an 8-K with supplemental schedules and our 10-Q were filed with the SEC today and are available online through EDGAR or through our website at axosfinancial.com. I will provide some brief comments on two topics. Please refer to our press release or our SEC filings for additional details. As Greg mentioned, our provision for credit losses was $2.7 million for this quarter ended March 31, 2021, down from $8 million for the last quarter ended December 31, 2020. The decrease in the linked quarter was due to the quarterly change in point in time loan growth. As we look forward to additional loan growth over the next year, we expect the loan loss provisions to generally move with the ending balance loan growth for the quarter and based on the mix of loan types. As discussed previously, we exited our relationship with H&R Block and did not issue Refund Advance loans this quarter, which is a large portion of the $25.8 million decline in the loan loss provision this quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to last year's quarter ended March 31, 2020. Although we exited the H&R Block relationship, they agreed to continue to pass-through RIA payments through April 30, 2021, due to the IRS tax return processing delays.

As of March 31, 2021, there was approximately $7.3 million of RIA loans left, 100% of which is covered by an allowance for credit losses. Next quarter, we expect to charge-off any uncollected portion of the $7.3 million RIA balance. However, that charge-off is not expected to impact our loan loss provision for the period. Moving to our Securities business. The pre-tax operating results for the Securities segment for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to last quarter ended December 31, 2020, improved by $0.4 million when excluding a onetime cost of $1 million incurred this quarter. The adjusted results for the Securities segment would be about breakeven this quarter compared to a pre-tax loss of $0.5 million last quarter. The improvement is primarily due to a $1.7 million increase in broker-dealer fee income at Axos Clearing, resulting from the transaction growth this quarter compared to the last quarter ended December 31, 2020. The fee income benefit was partially offset by higher Clearing costs and lower net interest income.

With that, I'll turn the call back over to Johnny Lai.

Johnny Lai -- Vice President of Corporate Development and Investor Relations

Thanks, Andy. Devin, we are ready to take questions.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

[Operator Instructions] Our first question comes from the line of David Feaster with Raymond James. Please proceed with your question.

David Feaster -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Hey, good afternoon everybody. I just wanted to start -- appreciate all the color with EAS. Curious about maybe some of the integration of that? And when you think you'll be able to really start driving market share? Is the integration and conversion a pretty quick process? And when do you think you can start addressing some of the platform limitations that you talked about kind of in that supplement?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Well, so we expect that the integration that we're creating with the broker-dealer is -- we expect that to be done by July 31. We also think that Liberty is a strong product. We have a RIA Custody sales team that sits in the Clearing company already. They have a pipeline. We already have a obviously much smaller RIA custody business. So we don't think that there is an impediment with respect to the Liberty technology that we need to fix in order to grow. In fact, we think it's a good platform. It actually is best-in-class in many areas. It allows multiple models in a single account, things like that. So it actually is great in many ways. There's a few things on the technology road map, like every technology road map that we want to work on. But we're hitting the ground running. EAS has a pipeline with respect to -- for growth that will carry over after the acquisition closes. We have a pipeline from a growth perspective. So we'll be looking to get that momentum going. There may be a little bit of just a slowdown from a perspective of just having to make sure that we're taking care of the current customers properly and that the transition goes well. But I think it's something that should be able to grow almost immediately.

David Feaster -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Okay. That's great. And then just looking at the loan growth, it was good to see the strength in the specialty CRE. Just curious how that -- the pipeline in that business is spending? Where are you seeing strength? What kind of projects you're more interested in? And then whether this is one of those segments that you talked about competitive new rates maybe pressure in margins some?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. So the projects are mostly residential projects. I'd say the most significant are multifamily related often projects that are in lease-up, things like that, really residential, some condo type of loans which are performing very well. Frankly, they're doing so well that by the time you make the loan, the units are getting leased up and sold. And obviously, the market on the residential side is very, very strong. With respect to rates there, we're holding our own there. I do expect that that there will be compression in those rates going forward as we continue to look to grow balances there. But we also do not expect that single-family is going to have the decline in balances it had this quarter. We did adjust rates in single-family and the pipeline is up significantly. And so we believe that we ought to be able to hold our own, at least, may not get much growth. But we don't believe that single-family will be dragging loan growth down in the way that it did this quarter on a going-forward basis based on what we're seeing with respect to the pipeline. So it may not be the grower that we expected it, we've had historically, but I don't think it will be via negative there. And then obviously, warehouse lending is really much more of a variable business. And so we expected that the temporary high balance we had, the high-growth we had in warehouse lending that we rolled through in the December 31, 2020 quarter was going to adjust a bit, and it did, which resulted in lower loan growth this quarter, almost entirely as a result of that adjustment. But -- but we have a lot of new clients there. We're still holding our own there as well. So hopefully, that will continue to be a much bigger business than it was four quarters ago.

David Feaster -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Okay. That's good color. And then maybe just more of a higher level strategic question. We've seen several other banks enter into some crypto partnerships and investments. Just given the Securities business and kind of your innovative mindset, is this something you all have any interest in? And I guess, do you see opportunity to participate in that side of things, the cryptocurrency side of things at all? And if so, how?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. We do. The way that we're going to incorporate it is in the trading platform, we will allow our clients to custody crypto assets and then trade those crypto assets for other crypto assets and then if they would like to monetize those assets, then they can, and they can spend that off with a card. So we don't really have a plan right now to have those crypto assets used for actual transactions. There's just -- there's not a lot of, I think, benefit right now there. I mean there's -- BMW came out and said, we'll take crypto assets for a car. But if you exchange those crypto assets, and write a check or send a wire, they'll also take that too. So yes, I think that it is increasingly becoming something that even just more conservative RIAs are recommending some percentage of portfolios being held in crypto assets. So that capability is being added to the Clearing company so that we can trade that. And I think it will be something to have that integrated service. I think it will be something that customers will value, given the way it's consolidated.

David Feaster -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Okay, that's great color. Thanks.

Operator

Thank you. Our next question comes from the line of Andrew Leisch with Piper Sandler. Please proceed with your question.

Andrew Leisch -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

Hey, good afternoon, everyone. So obviously, excluding the warehouse loan growth pretty solid here. Margin up nicely, but I guess, focusing just on the NII number, the dollars. Is this a good level to build from here? And the margin is going to do what it's going to do based on liquidity flows, but is the $136 million repeatable going forward?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. I think -- yes, definitely. And look, we expect to have loan growth. Pipelines are good, as I said, single family. I think that the -- I think that with respect to new asset growth, I think you should expect it to come in at a lower rate, just in general, and -- but not by a significant amount. But we expect to have good loan growth. And I think to the extent you may have had higher loan growth in your model given what happened on warehouse. You have -- you have obviously going to adjust that for this quarter and roll that actual into that. But yes, I think that's a fair statement.

Andrew Leisch -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

All right. You guys actually had better loan growth than I was looking for this quarter.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

We have to be more optimistic.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Our guidance -- our guidance really didn't change. I mean we still are...

Andrew Leisch -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

And that's kind of why I'm still right around this 10% growth or so. But I guess, shifting over just to your provisioning comments. Is there anything justifying the allowance up near this level? I mean, your historical loss history is much better, but it sounds like you're going to try to keep the reserve near this level or maybe drift lower adjusting for loan growth. But I mean, arguably, it could be a case for much lower than where it is right now. How do you see the provision playing out not just in the next couple of quarters, but over the next couple of years?

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Well, yes, a couple of years is way out there. Let me cover the couple of quarters. I think our guidance was for now, we're comfortable that we're going to move that provision around growth. So obviously, we had a little bit of smaller growth this quarter at a point in time. If that point in time growth goes up, which we do expect it, depending on where it happens, the loan loss reserves for commercial are closer to between 1.5 and two. So if all the net growth comes in commercial real estate, or commercial, you're looking more at 2% on growth, which could bring that number back up. That's our broader point is that we don't necessarily expect it to go down from here if we've got good loan growth. Obviously, if single-family grows, that growth rate is -- that loan loss rate is a little bit smaller. But the mix rates that we have put out there on our release are kind of what we expect to run going forward.

Andrew Leisch -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

Got it. Okay, thanks for that detail. That's my question.

Thank you. Our next question comes from the line of Michael Perito with KBW. Please proceed with your question.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

Hey, good afternoon guys. Thanks for taking my questions.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Hi, Michael.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

On the EAS side, Greg, are the $1.2 billion of deposits, are those -- like -- I apologize, I just missed it, but are those operating accounts with the RIA [Indecipherable]

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

No, no. Their client cash that is held in those individual customer accounts that is subject to a sweep agreement. And those -- those -- the RIAs manage that cash and they have a different level of -- there's about 150,000 accounts there. And they have -- and each RIA has its own asset allocation profile and risk tolerance and does things like that. But in general, that's the way to think about that.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

And is there -- so is there opportunity to -- when I'm just trying to think of how kind of the cross-sell of all this could fit in. I mean do they have a lot of -- do the customers of these RIAs have a lot of access to credit type products today? On the -- something like your security based lending? I'm just looking at slide eight of the EAS that you guys put out. I mean, is that stuff they have access to? Is that potential upside that could be rolled out relatively quickly. Any thoughts there?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. That's a great question. And I think that's very relevant. We didn't put that in the accretion numbers, but you make a lot of good points. So given that this wasn't on a broker-dealer platform, they had 0 margin lending with these clients, which was something that was concerned and limited the ability of the RIAs to maybe place all the assets of a particular client. So they may be dual custodian things or they just don't have that. So you don't have so with -- once that's integrated to a broker dealer, you can have the margin lending. Next, the securities-based line of credit idea, which is a very secure form of lending. But the ability for the bank to automate the locking up of liquid assets for personal loans or connecting that to a very low interest rate credit card. I mean, those are the type of things that are out there. And then finally, obviously, if you're an RIA and you're competing against, you just left Morgan Stanley, and you had a 40% split there. And now you're keeping everything and you're paying Axos Custody and all of a sudden, your client needs a mortgage loan. Well, if Morgan Stanley is saying, well, hey, gee, it's really too bad you left, and I know you like your advisor, but we're over here. And if you just had your money over here, we can give you this mortgage loan, and that's a significant problem. So one of the sets of services that are lost by breakaway advisors from wirehouses as they lose access to banking products. So we believe, and we've already proven it out. Some -- we have some RIA custody business now. And there's been some RIAs who have really taken to this.

And during the refinance boom, they said, "Well, part of my value is going through every one of my clients' portfolios and introducing an Axos mortgage product to those clients because that we're giving them -- we give them a better deal. We said we would waive the lender fee. So that was a significant benefit to their customers. And they went out and said, look, you guys need to do this. And there's no payments there. It was just -- look, this is a good opportunity to get a mortgage. So that is, I think, definitely an opportunity. And then the way we're integrating the technology is we built a really strong front end platform. That front-end platform can also be utilized for all of these end clients, both Clearing and RIA Custody to see their statements and whatever else. And then to the extent that a banking product is applied for, it gets applied for. And that customer is then a core banking customer. So that we have work to do there because Liberty has its own app. And so we have our app, and so we have to work through those sort of things. But those things are not hard to do, and we'll get it moving. It will take a bit but we'll get it right. And I think there's a lot of opportunity. And when we talk to the RIAs, there's different levels of enthusiasm about this, but they're universally concerned, mostly universe maybe an overstatement, but a wide majority are concerned that without these products, there's an angle created by a competitive wealth manager to to gain access to that client.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

Right. Well, I mean, if you just think about who's going after these types of clients, right? I mean, it's probably a lot like Chase private was like things like that, that have all these things, right? So I mean if you can't compete with that challenge, I mean, it would seem like beyond securities backed lending, mortgages, I mean, you could even possible to fill like money market type deposit accounts. I mean it would seem like there's a pretty full suite of services that you could offer that I imagine, they weren't really able to cross-sell previously, I guess...

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. Agreed. I think that's absolutely right. And we have the technology to deliver that seamlessly. Because all the applications for our products are all API enabled. And so whether the RIA facilitates that or whether it's facilitated through a mobile application or online, we have the ability to make that a relatively seamless process. So I think that's something that's really exciting. And frankly, the big custodians have not done that well. But we have -- because of our -- obviously, our history and how -- where we've come from, we have great account opening technology. That account opening technology is something that it would take a very large RIA to be able to generate and make that work. So how much does our account opening technology come into play? And how much does the consumer platform come into play? Those will be interesting opportunities on a going-forward basis.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

Got it. And as you think about the -- clearly, actually, you just talked about, right, there's a lot of opportunity, a lot of ways to dice it up and see that there's cross-selling opportunities. As we think about the kind of just the risk that [Indecipherable] those opportunities in an acquisition like [Indecipherable], is it fair to think that a lot of the risk would look similar to that of a core clearing when you guys brought that onto the platform? I mean, in terms of kind of like fraud and things of that nature. Are there anything else that we should be considering for those of those bank guys, I guess, that are with?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

No. I think that this is -- yes, I think this is a much lower risk -- is much lower risk from a standpoint of what you're worried about, obviously, fraud or those sort of things. And the reason why is just the type of clients that the [Indecipherable] that RIAs have, these are just simply domestic, relatively high net worth individuals that have hired somebody to manage a balanced portfolio of mutual funds, ETFs and some listed equities, right? So it's really not it's not something where you've got a lot of massive trading through or specific trading through these platforms. There's not -- in Axos Clearing, you'll have people that's short, right? And so obviously, managing the liquidity positions of those shorts and making sure that they're doing it with the right stocks and all those kind of risks. That just really isn't coming up in an RIA Custody business. So this I would say that this is a much easier business to manage from the market risk perspective.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

Makes sense. And then just lastly for me. If I think just high level from you guys, right? The entrance potentially by the end of the year to the crypto space one way shape or form. I think you guys, obviously kind of have a dual-pronged strategy with a lot of what you do, right? There's kind of a consumer element and then there's a commercial element and is it fair to say that the crypto side will likely evolve into both over time? I mean it sounds like it's more consumer-focused out of the gates here. But there's a really kind of institutional adoption of cryptos in such early stages. Some banks do a lot there already. I mean, is that an opportunity you guys are considering as well as you kind of go down this path? Or any added thoughts there would be great.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes, I think it is interesting. I think that it will inevitably lead there with respect to that. And I think it's a -- I think those are interesting opportunities.

Michael Perito -- KBW -- Analyst

Got it. Well, thank you guys. I appreciate it. Thank you.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Thanks, Mike.

Our next question comes from the line of Gary Tenner with D.A. Davidson. Please proceed with your question.

Gary Tenner -- D.A. Davidson -- Analyst

Hey guys, good afternoon. Thank you. I wanted to ask a couple of questions. The first on VAS, you talked about growing the $59 million, I think, or $58 million run rate of 2020, about half of that was from net interest income. So -- and I couldn't quite square kind of what those trailing numbers look like relative to your earnings accretion assumptions. And I just wanted to get a sense of what your kind of working assumption is with regard to maybe the incremental margin on those deposits that come over? And obviously, as you pointed out, there's going to be a mix of whether you keep them on balance sheet or off. But just trying to get a better sense for how you're thinking?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. Yes. So here's the way we thought about it, and these are the assumptions, and you can see them on page seven of the earnings supplement. But we said we're going to assume that EAS' client cash earned 75 basis points. And that then we have a $3.6 million interest expense savings from a four to five basis point reduction in Axos Bank's interest bearing cost. Now the reality of it is, we already have -- we have -- now we have an extra $1.2 billion of deposits. We have $400 million outside Axos and Clearing. We're going to aggressively manage down our deposit cost as a result of this. So we sort of picked a pretty, I think, a pretty conservative estimate and said, OK, let's assume we can only take our deposit cost for all interest-bearing, checking, savings and money markets across consumer and commercial, down by four to five basis points. Now that's that's -- I think that's a pretty conservative assumption, but that's what we have in there. And then we have EAS client cash earning that. When you think about it, it's actually interesting from a conceptual perspective, when you try to come up with these numbers because what you're supposed to be doing is saying, what would my economics be with and what would be my economics be without, the reality of this business is it generates a lot of 0 cost, very sticky deposits at an all-in cost that's lower to service than, let's say, consumer checking accounts, which, although they may have -- they have obviously, we have ones that have interest rates and those interest rates are coming down as we continue to mature, but we also have a lot of operating costs associated with those accounts. And those accounts are smaller, obviously, on average than, than high net worth accounts from RIA custodies. So that's what we've made the assumptions around. I think how that actually looks sort of going forward is that it's going to look like aggressive reductions in cost of funds pretty quickly here in order to make room for those deposits. And then also -- and then also, it enables growth at maybe more competitive loan rates as well, right? So that is another element that assists as we think about balancing this this loan yield, NIM, asset growth set of variables. This just gives us a lot bigger tool, and we've given the assumptions that we've made with respect to the accretion in the supplement deck.

Gary Tenner -- D.A. Davidson -- Analyst

Okay. Yes, fair enough. I mean, we're certainly looking at it in a vacuum versus combing old and the rating impact of the parts of the business are two different animals. And I missed that second-line added on that slide seven versus the slide in the deck last week.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes.

Gary Tenner -- D.A. Davidson -- Analyst

So I appreciate that. In terms of the nationwide deposits. Andy, can you just kind of remind us what the kind of remainder is of those deposits that you're going to work down and what's the prevailing rate is?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

And that's just the CDs. I mean, there's -- there was nationwide checking as whatever that we've adjusted and is there good stuff.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. Let me give you a couple of snippets that there's a big piece in July of this year, $114 million at 2.29%. There's a $60 million piece in August at 1.85%. There's a $39 million piece at 1.57% in September. So that -- as you can see, that quarter is where the bigger pieces start to amortize off across that. And so the whole book within the CD group as you look at across nationwide, we're probably looking about about 700 -- call it, $710 million of the $331 million balance is just nationwide.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

And some of those were high -- they were long-term...

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Very long-term.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

That are coming due that were higher rate from a different environment. So obviously, there's excess deposits across the bulk of the securities businesses, and we're renewing some of these. But frankly, obviously, the rates are going to adjust significantly to the extent people offer renewal.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. And let me give you two more numbers. I know I'm showing a lot of numbers out there, but you want them. $55 million in that group, it's coming off in May for that group at 188 and then another $55 million in June also at 188. So, that gives you kind of a flavor of how fast it's coming down.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Right and I think maybe a broad conceptual way to think about this, and I know it's a lot of movement. But obviously, with what we've been doing on the cost of funds side, it's going to get a lot better, right? We obviously, of course, we're adding cost with what we're doing in these businesses. We will get more scale there as we get into these businesses and put our process improvements in place and things like that. But obviously, having lower funding cost also allows you to have loan growth because you have more flexibility on loan rates, and so within the target NIM ranges that we're trying to get to. So all of those kind of move around a bit, but they end up getting you a little more flexibility with respect to loan growth as a result of an ability to offer a more flexible set of loan rates.

Gary Tenner -- D.A. Davidson -- Analyst

Got it. And then just I'm going to bounce back to EAS for a second, and I don't think I missed this, but in terms of goodwill or any intangibles, customer relationship intangibles or anything like that. Have you talked about that at all? Or can you give us any kind of insight there?

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. We -- it's obviously super early, Gary. So we're just giving you a very rough estimate. This could change one way or another. And I've got Derek here. But Derek, in the end, what did we end up using as total intangibles?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Total intangibles would be between $40 million and $50 million, of which about $5 million to $10 million of that $40 million to $50 million is internally developed software.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

So a large portion of it is, is.

Gary Tenner -- D.A. Davidson -- Analyst

All right.

Our next question comes from the line of Steve Moss with B. Riley Securities. Please proceed with your question.

Steve Moss -- B. Riley Securities -- Analyst

Hi, good afternoon. Maybe just following up in terms of -- just in terms of yields. Just wondering, to start, where are new money yields coming in for loans these days?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

The single-family is probably down. The pipeline is up. The yields are probably new money yields, I think, are down almost 25, 30 basis points, something like that. I think that's about right. And then the C&I stuff is a max. Right now, it really isn't down much. I was maybe down a little bit every now and then, but not much. And then multifamily depends on the mix and say maybe from this quarter, I don't think it's -- I think the pipeline is pretty stable. So I just -- I don't want to overstate my concern about that or that there's going to be some massive cut. But I just think looking forward and thinking about the competitive environment and where it could go that is just an option associated with what's happening with our funding cost. Single-family, though, is something where we have cut rates and the results is -- and we have enough run time, I think, to see that kind of play out a bit in the pipeline. And so that's kind of where that's coming out.

Steve Moss -- B. Riley Securities -- Analyst

Okay. That's helpful. And then in the quarter here, your SBLOC lending took off pretty good good growth there off a small balance. But just kind of curious how you're thinking about SBLOC over the next six to 12 months? And any color that you can give there?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. I mean, there really is -- really is -- on just the SBLOC side, there's a couple of -- I mean, there's a consumer integration that occurs for both the end clearing and the RIA Custody clients. And then it is also an institutional integration that occurs for the brokers and the RIAs so that they can offer those to their clients. That's not systematized right now and exactly the way it needs to be, but it's on the tech road map. And so right now, these deals are being done. More manually and sourced as the demand comes up and people ask for them and things like that. And they're much more of a -- the broker has a client who needs this and that kind of thing. But over time. And then obviously, the assets are custody declaring and they're locked up, and they're monitored in the same way a margin would be monitored to ensure the collateral is there. So so yes, so that's -- I think that right now, it'd probably be a little more sporadic, but over time, I think those loans will become smaller, more granular and much more utilized. I think one of the goals to be that much more utilized like an overdraft line of credit or something almost or just the liquidity management tool. So a customer could avoid selling assets and kind of just bridge those gaps to just sort of sit there and one click and they want account kind of thing and I think that's -- I think that's going to be a pretty neat synergy with respect to everything we're doing.

Steve Moss -- B. Riley Securities -- Analyst

Right. Absolutely. Any idea in terms of time line as the one that could be rolled out on the tech side?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Yes. I think self-directed trading is coming in this June quarter. But we're taking this as a -- these are very kind of targeted rollouts with slow sort of -- we're not looking to try to blow out some massive number of customers we're going through. We'll put some customers on there. We'll make sure everything is working the way we expected to and everything is functioning well. I think probably the SBLOC side stuff is probably more -- that sort of one click kind of deal, I think is probably be more in the first calendar quarter of '22, probably, just given what we've got on the plate so far.

Steve Moss -- B. Riley Securities -- Analyst

Okay. That's helpful. And then just on expenses here. Just kind of curious as to how you guys are thinking about total expenses going forward, continued growth in data processing, just -- but overall trends, I'm curious about.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Sure. Yes. No, we do expect expenses to come up some next quarter. In general, I would think about $1.5 million or thereabouts, potentially a little bit more. Where that adds up, of course, there are always pluses and minus minuses in the salaries area, we had a couple of offsets, and we'll have higher FICA expense. So I'm expecting a little bit over $1 million to $1.5 million more there on that side. In that sense, professional services, we did have some onetime items. I'm expecting that to actually come down by about $500,000. Data processing up $500,000.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Isn't that mostly the Clearing running through because that would be the cost of the transactions, right?

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes, there's the cost of transaction and the other legal stuff as...

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

That data processing is going to...

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. Well, in data processing, we just have a number of items that are coming through that are getting ultimately project oriented. They're not capitalized on. Yes. Those are the big things. And then the rest of smaller numbers in the other area. Other G&A was up primarily because last quarter was down. We reversed $1 million of -- this is where the actual allowance associated with the uncommitted liability runs through. And so not this quarter, but last quarter, we reversed $1 million of it, which reduced last quarter's other G&A expense. And so there's $1 million that you would add back that would do that. But all in all, we do expect other G&A to be down slightly. So when you add up all those numbers, it's about -- around $1.5 million increase maybe in operating expenses consolidated.

Steve Moss -- B. Riley Securities -- Analyst

Great. I appreciate all the color. Thank you very much.

Operator

Thank you. Our final question comes from the line of Tim Coffey with Janney Montgomery Scott. Please proceed with your question.

Tim Coffey -- Janney Montgomery Scott -- Analyst

Thank you. Andy, if you can just stick on expenses for a little bit real quick. Do you anticipate any acquisition expenses going through in the June quarter?

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

No. Nothing material.

Tim Coffey -- Janney Montgomery Scott -- Analyst

Okay. And then within the banking and service fee, line item in noninterest income. Was there a onetime item in the quarter-to-quarter change?

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

On -- you're saying on the linked quarter change?

Tim Coffey -- Janney Montgomery Scott -- Analyst

Yes.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Okay. So where we see our stuff coming down about from 10 for the other things. So I know two -- a little bit over two is associated with. There's an [Indecipherable] fee that is a statement fee that gets earned onetime per year at December 31. That's not repeated in the March quarter. So that's going to be, call that $2.5 million. So that's the majority of the piece there. Other than that in the other pieces, that's the main thing.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

I mean -- yes, there might be a little more a fee on the the bankruptcy side, the Axos fiduciary services side probably is up a little bit. And then...

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes, for that relative to the piece. But...

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Block. There is block income in Q2.

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. So the final -- there was block had some tailing fees that we earned in the December quarter. That's now gone. And so the number you're seeing this quarter based on those things, is closer to the run rate.

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

Except for the fourth quarter next year, right?

Andrew J. Micheletti -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes, except for the fourth quarter next year.

Tim Coffey -- Janney Montgomery Scott -- Analyst

Yes, we can cover that one later in the year. And then, Greg, is it too far a feel to think that as you start to integrate your customers across the ecosystem with EAS and the legacy Axos that that you might see fewer payoffs or maybe a potential slowdown in loan payoffs as people stay in the ecosystem?

Gregory Garrabrants -- President and Chief Executive Officer

I think there's a possibility there with respect to some element of loans. But a lot like the commercial specialty real estate stuff, it really is designed to pay off, right? I mean that's the nature of a lot of the products. So that's potentially right. I think I think that is -- we're -- I think we can do a much better job. I think where it probably have the biggest impact is in all the consumer stuff. And then single-family, I think that could be an impact. And we are doing retention stuff. Now we're getting better and better at it. But I do think that a customer that has -- as an RIA relationship and a custody relationship and all these different things, I think that is going to help over time with respect to that. And so yes, I think that's a possibility. I don't -- I wouldn't try to model it, but right now, and it's certainly a longer-term type of potential benefit.

Tim Coffey -- Janney Montgomery Scott -- Analyst

All right now, that makes sense. Those are my questions. Thank you.
