    Dear Clients and Shareholders In 1985, we founded First Republic Bank on the assumption that a truly distinct dedication to exceptional client service would result in a very successful banking business. This has proven to be true — even through the tremendous challenges of 2020. We have been guided entirely by the principle that if we take great care of our colleagues, our clients and our communities, we will have a sustainable business that delivers consistent value to all of our stakeholders. First Republic’s uniquely strong growth and increase in shareholder value of over 25% per annum for more than 35 years are the outcome of this focused, long-term approach. From First Republic’s 1985 Shareholder Letter: “First Republic’s philosophy, which originates from its Directors’ and Management’s successful prior experience as the founding and operating group of a similar company, is to provide the highest quality banking service available …. Additionally, the Company is committed to the maintenance of a very strong capital position at all times. We believe that narrowly targeted operations and strong capitalization will prove in the long run to be the proper format for a most successful banking enterprise. The real strength of First Republic Bancorp, in addition to its capital resources, lies in the caliber and experience of its people.” James H. Herbert, II Founder, Chairman and CEO First Republic has grown organically from its initial 1985 $8.8 million de novo capitalization to become the nation’s 17th largest commercial bank by deposits and the 11th largest by market capitalization. Our straightforward business model has performed very well for three and a half decades through widely varying economic and geopolitical conditions, resulting in consistent profitability every year since inception. In 2020, we all faced a global pandemic, a transition in political leadership, social unrest, and continued market and economic volatility. At the same time, amazingly enough, it was First Republic’s best year ever in terms of financial results. These exceptionally strong results were a direct outcome of the enormous effort from our colleagues and their unwavering focus on taking care of one another and First Republic Bank / 2020 3

Nonetheless, we added $157 million to our allowance for credit losses. As we look to much more positive economic conditions in 2021, particularly in the second half of the year, continued strong credit quality remains a fundamental aspect of First Republic’s safety and stability. 2015–2020 2015–2020 2015–2020 2015–2020 4 First Republic Bank / 2020 First Republic Bank / 2020 5

    35 years of extr aordinary service Looking Ahead Our expectation for 2021 is a significantly improved economy and strong recovery, especially during the second half of the year. The timing of a consumer spending–led recovery is variable, dependent upon the timing and success of vaccination programs across various states. We currently anticipate an economic reopening during the summer. While commercial real estate may slightly lag, we also anticipate strong single-family residential markets, declining savings levels supporting consumer expenditures, recovering multifamily markets, and active private equity and venture capital markets, resulting in solid GDP growth for the full year. During 2020, we spent an even greater than normal share of our time, effort and resources supporting our colleagues and their families. The quality of our colleagues’ enormous hard work during the year was truly remarkable. This includes the successful adaptation to the conditions of the pandemic, while at the same time maintaining our very collaborative culture and high level of client service. Our colleagues’ efforts were tireless and selfless, across all areas of the enterprise. We are in awe of this response, which continues, and we are extremely grateful for and proud of the results.

The nonprofit was housed in First Republic’s headquarters at 111 Pine Street for over a decade. 2011 – First Republic begins equity investments in minority-owned depository institutions (MDIs) as one of only five financial institutions that answered the call to action to keep Carver Bank in Harlem, New York, afloat after the financial crisis.

As of December 2020, the Bank has funded $3.6 billion since the program’s inception, and over half of the applicants were minority individuals. 2016 – First Republic establishes a Community Advisory Board to help guide the Bank’s community outreach and reinvestment initiatives. 2018 – San Francisco Business Times recognizes First Republic for its long-standing gender diversity. 2020 – Jim Herbert and First Republic are honored with the Foreign Policy Association’s Corporate Social Responsibility Award.
