Supporting factors include: ◦ An increase in CoBiz discount accretion, which supported the margin by approximately 11bp this quarter. Could normalize in Q4. ◦ Interest-bearing deposit costs down 8 basis points for the quarter ◦ Loan floors in our commercial book more effective as average LIBOR declined 19 basis points • A bit more room to lower the cost of interest-bearing deposits. LIBOR has largely normalized, reducing near-term pressure on loan yields 11

Liquidity & Capital Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q3 2019 Loan to Deposit Ratio 68.1% 71.3% 85.2% Period End Deposits $35.0 billion $33.9 billion $26.2 billion Available secured wholesale borrowing capacity $12.5 billion $14.6 billion $10.1 billion Common Equity Tier 1 12.1% 11.4% 11.1% Total Capital Ratio 14.1% 13.4% 12.6% Tangible Common Equity Ratio 9.0% 8.8% 8.7% • Deposit growth continues to be strong • Over $12 billion of secured borrowing capacity and over $5 billion of unsecured and contingent liquidity capacity • CET1 and Total Capital are 510bp and 360bp above well-capitalized, respectively 14

Forecast and Assumptions • Loan growth to remain soft, though we’ll be looking for opportunities to grow loans once again in 2021 • Available-for-sale security portfolio yield expected to decrease as prepayments force reinvestment at lower rates • Incremental deposit cost lowering possible, though nearing a bottom. LIBOR has largely normalized, reducing near-term pressure on loan yields • The combination of pressure on asset yields and less room to lower deposit costs will put some pressure on net interest margin • Fee revenues to continue to show strength, and projected to continue at elevated levels in the near to intermediate term, with perhaps some normal seasonal slowdown in mortgage • Operating expenses should remain at relatively same levels as has been seen the past few quarters • Significant loan loss reserve building remains behind us • Quarterly cash dividend will remain in place • Opportunistic share repurchase activity likely to resume in the fourth quarter 15
