July 19 (Reuters) - Bank of New York Mellon Corp reported a 14 percent rise in second-quarter profit on Thursday, helped by higher fee revenue and lower income tax provision.
The world’s largest custodian bank said net income applicable to common shareholders rose to $1.06 billion, or $1.03 per share, in the quarter ended June 30 from $926 million, or 88 cents per share, a year earlier.
Total revenue rose 4.6 percent to $4.14 billion. (Reporting by Diptendu Lahiri in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
