Singapore lender OCBC'S Q1 net profit rises 11 pct

SINGAPORE, May 10 (Reuters) - Singapore’s Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Ltd beat market estimates with an 11 percent rise in quarterly profit on Friday, driven by broad-based growth, while net interest income grew 8 percent.

The city-state’s second-biggest listed lender’s net profit came in at S$1.23 billion ($901.5 million) versus S$1.11 billion a year earlier, and compared with the S$1.16 billion average estimate of five analysts, according to data from Refinitiv.

OCBC is the last local bank to report results.
