Commonwealth Bank (ASX:CBA) has reported statutory net profit of $2.8 billion in the September quarter.
Unaudited cash earnings for the quarter increased by 6 per cent to $2.65 billion.

Group net interest margin (NIM) was higher in the quarter, driven by asset re-pricing and reduced liquid asset balances, partly offset by the impact of the banking levy, higher funding costs and competition.
