Total loans increased $35.8 million, or 2.7%, from December 31, 2016 and stood at $1.4 billion as of September 30, 2017.

Interest on loans increased by $721,000, or 5.8%, primarily driven by the impact of loan growth. The Company’s net interest margin, on a fully tax equivalent basis, increased four basis points to 3.23% for the three months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to 3.19% for the three months ended September 30, 2016.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, net interest and dividend income after provision for loan losses, increased by $3.0 million, or 7.7%, to $42.5 million, as compared to $39.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Interest on loans increased by $2.3 million, or 6.3%, primarily driven by the impact of loan growth.

Total noninterest income increased by $362,000, or 4.8%, to $8.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $7.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 primarily as a result of increased Wealth Management revenue. Noninterest income was 35.3% of total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. Wealth Management revenue increased by $650,000, or 11.9%, for the third quarter of 2017, as compared to the third quarter of 2016 due to new business development and market appreciation. Wealth Management Assets under Management increased by $254.2 million, or 9.9%, to $2.8 billion as of September 30, 2017, as compared to $2.6 billion as of December 31, 2016.
Noninterest income increases were partially offset by lower gains on loans held for sale and lower loan related derivative income of $266,000 and $108,000, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2016.
Total noninterest expense increased by $439,000, or 3.1%, to $14.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $14.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. The increase in salaries and benefits of $446,000 is primarily due to the impact of additional staff to support business initiatives for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2016. The increase of $300,000 in professional services is mainly due to legal and consulting services primarily related to registration with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2016.
Noninterest expense increases were partially offset by decreases in data processing and lower marketing costs of $168,000 and $108,000, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to September 30, 2016.
Loan quality remained sound with non-performing loans totaling $1.7 million, or 0.13% of total loans outstanding as of September 30, 2017. The allowance for loan losses was $15.6 million, or 1.15% of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2017, as compared to $15.3 million, or 1.16% of total loans outstanding at year end 2016.
The effective tax rate was 35.0% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to 33.3% for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the effective tax rate was 33.5%, as compared to 33.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. During the current year, the Company recognized $219,000 of tax benefit resulting from the adoption of new accounting guidance for share-based payments.
On October 16, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.47 per share, which is payable on November 16, 2017 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 2, 2017.
