Goldman Sachs provided a rare look into the performance of the units that make up fixed-income trading, the firm’s largest source of revenue.

Bloomberg News reports that interest-rate products generated about $14 billion, or 29% of fixed-income revenue, in the past five years, the New York-based bank said in a presentation on its website.

CEO Lloyd Blankfein spoke to investors at a Credit Suisse event in Florida, his first presentation at an investor conference in more than a year.

Goldman typically has only provided its total revenue from fixed-income trading, which produced a Wall Street record $21.9 billion in 2009 and declined to $8.46 billion last year. 

Credit trading followed interest rates, producing 25 percent of fixed-income revenue. Mortgages and currencies trading each generated about 16 percent of revenue, while commodities accounted for about 14 percent, the firm said.
