November 16 -- ABN Amro Group NV, the state-controlled Dutch lender that returned to the stock market last year, reported a 19 percent jump in third-quarter profit, helped by net interest income. Underlying net income, which strips out one-time items, rose to 607 million euros ($652 million) from 509 million euros a year earlier, the Amsterdam-based company said. That beat the 454 million-euro average of six analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. CFO Kees Van Dijkhuizen discusses the latest figures with Anna Edwards and Yousef GamelEl-Din on "Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe."
