Jan 15 (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co on Tuesday reported a 67 percent rise in fourth-quarter profit from a year ago, when it took a $2.4 billion charge due to an overhaul of the U.S. tax code.
The largest U.S. bank by assets said net income for the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31 rose to $7.07 billion, or $1.98 per share, from $4.23 billion, or $1.07 per share, a year ago.
Analysts had expected earnings of $2.20 per share, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. It was not immediately clear if the reported results were comparable.
Rival Citigroup Inc reported a better-than-expected 14 percent rise in adjusted quarterly profit on Monday, mainly helped by cost cuts. (Reporting by Siddarth Cavale Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
