Financial services company State Street posted its first-quarter results that surpassed analysts’ estimates. However, its revenue from interest on loans was below expectations.
State Street’s adjusted earnings for the quarter came in at $1.47 a share, compared to $1.35 a share expected by analysts.
Revenue fell around -4% year-over-year to $2.95 billion, also higher than analysts’ estimates of $2.87 billion. Fee revenue rose +4% in the quarter while servicing fees climbed +7%. Its management fees increased +6% and securities finance was +8% higher in the quarter.
Net interest income fell -30% from the year-ago quarter to $467 million, lower than the consensus forecast of $470 million.
The company’s total expenses increased +3%, which it largely attributed to currency headwind.
