Net income climbed 38% to $1.44 billion and earnings soared 40% to $2.99 per share. Adjusted earnings increased to $3.12 per share from $2.42 per share in the prior-year quarter.
However, total net revenue declined 0.3% to $6.96 billion due to lower non-interest income and a marginal rise in net interest income.
