"The economic and social consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have been immediate and disruptive and at the same time, the response by policy makers has been swift and unprecedented in scale. At BMO, our top priority has been, and continues to be, the health and safety of all our employees and customers and the delivery of critical banking services," said Darryl White, CEO BMO Financial Group.

"We acted quickly to mobilize our workforce and adapt the ways we serve our customers while maintaining operational stability in every business. We have helped customers experiencing financial stress by providing relief options, personalized advice and access to experts. We've announced community support initiatives focused on helping those with the greatest need.

"While the full scope and scale of the economic and social impact of the pandemic remains uncertain, we have never been better positioned to face these challenges. We entered this crisis from a position of strength, with good operating momentum across our diverse businesses, strong capital and liquidity, a strong record of performance in risk management, disciplined expense management and long history of overcoming challenges together with our customers.

"For the second quarter, we demonstrated the resilience of our earnings power as we earned through the impact of market volatility and prudent loan loss provisioning. As we transition to the re-opening of our economies, we will sustain and adapt operations to support our customers, employees, communities and the broader economic recovery, and together emerge from this crisis even stronger," concluded Mr. White.
