    StanChart profit beats estimates, flags strong outlook on rising rates

    SINGAPORE/LONDON (Reuters) -Standard Chartered posted a forecast-beating 6% rise in first-quarter profit, sending its shares sharply higher, as the emerging-markets focused lender benefited from rising interest rates aimed at controlling inflation. The London-headquartered lender, which is focused on Asia, Africa and the Middle East, now expects income growth this year to slightly exceed earlier guidance of 5-7%, underlining how banks' prospects are being lifted by policy rate hikes even as the global economic outlook dims. StanChart's Hong Kong-listed shares jumped more than 12% at one point to their highest level since early March following the earnings report, compared with a 0.6% rise in the broader market.
