Shinhan Financial Group said Monday that net profit attributable to shareholders reached 817.3 billion won ($726.7 million) in the July-September period, up 15.4% from a year ago. That helped its accumulated net profit for the first nine months to spike 25.1% to 2.7 trillion won from the previous year, putting it on track to earn more than 3 trillion won this year.
