The bank’s net profit for the quarter reached US$589.1 million, up from US$298.2 in the year-ago quarter, giving Citic Bank the sharpest third-quarter profit growth among major Chinese banks. Net interest income rose 36% to US$1.37 billion, while fee-based income and commission rose 77%, to US$116 million.
