In the year-earlier period, the bank earned $1.46 billion, or $2.85 per share.
Goldman's shares fell 2.5 percent to $158.23 in pre-market trading despite the stronger-than-expected earnings and an increase in quarterly dividend to 55 cents per share from 50.
"The third quarter's results reflected a period of slow client activity," Chairman and Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein said in a statement.

Goldman was not the only Wall Street bank to be stung by weak fixed-income trading. However, it is more reliant on trading income than its bigger rivals, which have significant consumer banking operations.

Equity trading revenue dropped 18 percent to $1.62 billion, while investment banking advisory revenue slid 17 percent to $423 million.
However, underwriting revenue rose 13 percent $743 million.
