JPMorgan Reports Record Earnings

jpmorgan

NEW YORK: JPMorgan Chase has today reported a jump in first-quarter earnings, lifted by higher interest rates and revenue growth in core businesses.

Net income for the first quarter was $8.7 billion, up 35.1% from the same time last year.

Revenues increased 10.3% to $28.5 billion.

The biggest US bank by assets saw increases in revenues in all its major divisions due in large part to higher interest rates, which enabled JPMorgan to increase its profits from the spread between its deposits and loans.

In corporate and investment banking, JPMorgan notched higher advisory fees, offsetting a drop in debt and equity underwriting fees.
