BANGKOK, April 21 (Reuters) - Bangkok Bank, Thailand's largest lender by assets, said its first quarter net profit rose 4.9 percent due to an increase in fee income, although loan growth was curbed by a sluggish economy.
Net profit was 9.41 billion baht ($290 million) for the January-March quarter, higher than the 8.9 billion baht forecasts by nine analysts polled by Reuters.
