Jaiz Bank’s profit rose more than 14% in the third quarter of the financial year 2022, according to its latest regulatory filing on the Nigerian Exchange (NGX).

In the non-interest banking space in Nigeria, Jaiz Bank controls over 62% assets, which is supported by its robust gross income of N23.74 billion as at end of September 2022 from N18.78 billion at the end of September 2021, representing 26.34% increment.

Supported by growth in other operating income, fees and commission receipts, Jaiz Bank’s total income jumped by 23% to N16.03 billion in September 2022 from N13.02 billion in September 2021.
