Its second-quarter results are lower relative to other quarters because there are fewer calendar days, and thus fewer business days. The months of July (third quarter) and August (fourth quarter) are characterized by lower levels of capital markets activity, which has an effect on results in Wealth Management and BMO Capital Markets. The December holiday season also contributes to a slowdown in some activities. Regulations The company’s activities in Canada are governed by the Bank Act.
