The banking group’s Q2 2022 revenues were $19.63 billion, an 11% increase compared to $17.8 billion in the same period of the prior year. The revenue growth was steered by increased rates, activities of clients in markets along with sustained momentum in the US cards businesses, which were slightly negated by a slowdown in activity in investment banking and investment fee headwinds in global wealth management as well.
