UBS and BNP Report Profits Despite Low Interest Rates
35:35 - UBS Group AG, the world’s biggest manager of money for the wealthy, said pretax profit rose 11 percent in the third quarter as costs declined, offsetting a drop in wealth management and investment banking. Pretax profit rose to 877 million Swiss francs ($883 million) from 788 million francs a year earlier, the Zurich-based bank said in a statement Friday. That compares with the 862 million-franc average of six analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg.
