DUBAI, April 23 (Reuters) - First Gulf Bank (FGB), the second largest lender by market value in the United Arab Emirates, posted a 27 percent jump in first-quarter net profit on Wednesday, beating analysts’ forecasts.

The lender, majority-owned by Abu Dhabi’s ruling family, made a net profit of 1.33 billion dirhams ($362.1 million) in the three months ending March 31, up from 1.05 billion dirhams in the prior-year period, it said in a statement.
