Goldman Sachs says its first-quarter net income jumped as its investment banking unit logged its best quarter since the financial crisis. Higher fees from trading currencies and bonds also helped.
The bank earned $2.75 billion, or $5.94 a share, in the first three months of the year. That compares with $1.95 billion, or $4.02, in the same period a year earlier.
