Barclays reported better-than-expected third-quarter profits on Thursday, following its Wall Street rivals in receiving a significant boost from its investment banking division.

The British bank reported attributable profit of £1.45 billion for the third quarter. Analysts had expected a net income of £931.25 million, according to Refinitiv data, and the figure marks a significant increase from the £611 million reported in the same period last year.

"While the CIB [Corporate and Investment Bank] performance continues to be an area of strength for the Group, we are also seeing evidence of a consumer recovery and the early signs of a more favourable rate environment," CEO Jes Staley said in a statement.
