National Bank of Canada (NA-T) said on Thursday its first-quarter profit rose 45 percent, as stronger consumer and business loan growth more than offset a decline in trading income.

National, Canada's No. 6 bank, earned $312 million, or $1.80 a share, in the fiscal first quarter ended January 31. That compared with a profit of $215 million, or $1.22 a share, in the year-before period.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S had expected, on average, a profit of $1.64 a share.
