Los Angelas, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2013 -- Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) Chief Brian Moynihan's Project New BAC has been a model of cost reduction since its unveiling in the fall of 2011, when he announced planned cuts of $5 billion by the end of this year. By Nov. 2012, Moynihan noted that the bank had sold off $60 billion in non-core assets, allowing it to pad capital reserves by $12 billion. Recently, B of A has done even more trimming, selling off more big blocks of mortgage-servicing rights. The effects of this strategy showed up nicely in the bank's recent fourth-quarter report, at least as far as capital reserves are concerned. B of A now sports a Basel III Tier 1 common capital ratio of 9.25%, up from 8.97% in the third quarter.
