Analysts polled by Infront Data had expected Switzerland's second-biggest bank to bring in 692 million francs on the bottom line.
A pre-tax profit rise to 1.06 billion francs from 1.05 billion a year ago beat expectations for a 5.9 percent fall.
The bank confirmed its full-year guidance and said it was cautiously optimistic about the second quarter following a challenging start to the year.
