JPMorgan Chase & Co's first-quarter profit is up by 35% from a year ago, helped by higher interest rates and a lower tax bill.
The US-based firm said that while pre-tax income was up by $2bn (€1.4bn) in the quarter, it paid $240m (€168m) less in taxes when compared to the previous year.
Earnings were $8.71bn (€6.1bn), up from $6.45bn (€4.5bn) during the same period last year, results that beat the expectations of analysts.Chief executive Jamie Dimon said: "The global economy continues to do well, and we remain optimistic about the positive impact of tax reform in the US as business sentiment remains upbeat, and consumers benefit from job and wage growth."
