SINGAPORE, Nov. 3 (Reuters) - Singapore's second-largest
lender Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp reported a
better-than-expected 19% rise in quarterly net profit on
Wednesday, supported by lower provisions for credit losses.
Net profit rose to S$1.22 billion ($904.5 million) in
July-September from S$1.03 billion a year earlier and versus the
average estimate of S$936 million of four analysts, according to
data from Refinitiv.
