Profits rose 15.8 percent at Kansas City-based UMB Financial Corp.

The banking company said it earned $34.7 million, or 76 cents a share, in April, May and June, compared with $29.9 million, or 74 cents a share, in the same months a year ago.

Non-interest income — from fees for securities processing work, trading and investment banking services, and other sources — totaled $134 million during the quarter, which is more than the $86.2 million in net interest income.

UMB had $15.6 billion in total assets at the end of June.
