25.04.2013 - RAKBANK reports Q1 profits up 13 pct to AED 367.98 mln
Net interest income plus net profit from Islamic financing grew by six per cent compared to 31 March 2012 to AED 570.6 million. Non-interest income, which stood at AED 181.8 million by the end of the first quarter of 2013, climbed by 18 per cent compared to the same period last year. This increase is due to several streams of fee income stemming particularly from auto loans, mortgages, Bancassurance, and foreign exchange services. In addition, investment income grew by 50 per cent compared to same period last year as the bank continued to invest in quoted debt instruments.
