AMMAN, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Jordan’s largest lender, Arab Bank Group, said its January-September net profit came to $615.1 million, barely changed from $614.2 million in the same period last year.
It said its loans book and customer deposits had continued to grow despite exchange-rate fluctuations.
One of the Middle East’s major financial institutions, Arab Bank Group said on Saturday that its total loans rose 2 percent to $23.6 billion as of the end of September, while deposits had grown 5 percent to $34.8 billion compared with the same period last year.
The bank, with a balance sheet of $46.4 billion, gave no figure for net profit in the third quarter alone. (Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
