With central banks, (the money) says legal tender: you have to take this as payment. It's very cheap to do, it's very easy to move back and forth.

I called up my management team and my board of directors, both on Friday night and Saturday night the weekend that Lehman is going bankrupt, and told them that you were going to have the worst, scariest week that you've ever seen in the financial markets or the financial system in the United States and that JPMorgan will do everything we can to help our country.

It's starting to work. The numbers are getting better and it's different. We have to acknowledge the reason it's different is it's a different history, a different background. A lot of African Americans didn't grow up in the same neighborhoods as white people. We're doing great with women, we're doing great with Asians, we're doing great with Hispanics.

I'm not going to call it a bubble, but I personally wouldn't be buying a 10-year sovereign debt anywhere in the world.

Aug 08 2017

We've never had the reverse of QE 1, 2, or 3 before. If you see the ECB doing it and the United States doing it and maybe the environment is not the enviornment that people expect. People can not predict the future.feedback

We're using bots today and it's not going to stop us from opening retail branches. It's not going to stop us from having private bankers.

But creating more efficiency creates capital, creates other opportunities.feedback

Jul 21 2017 - LinkedIn

Jul 14 2017

I could go on and on and make a list of all the things that have slowed us down and held us back and affected jobs and wages. I think America has got to get its act together about a bunch of stuff, not just one.feedback

Jun 06 2017

We have to do this ... it's time to fix it. Business decisions are made at the margin. At the margin we've been driving capital overseas.feedback

CEOs are also responding to the administration's commitment to creating a more favorable regulatory environment, protecting the safety and health of our citizens while also protecting jobs.feedback

May 16 2017

He is the President of the United States. I believe he is the pilot flying our airplane, I would try to help any President of the United States because I'm a patriot. Our corporate tax system is driving capital and brains overseas and excessive regulation is reducing growth and business formation particularly for small businesses.feedback

May 16 2017 - Dodd-Frank Act

We are not looking to throw out the entirety of Dodd-Frank or other rules, it is however appropriate to open up the rulebook in the light of day and rework the rules and regulations that don't work well or are unnecessary. We believe that changes can and should be made to preserve the safety and soundness of the financial system.feedback

May 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

I would try to help any president of the United States, because I'm a patriot. That does not mean we agree with all the policies that an administration comes up with.feedback

Detroit's resurgence is a model for what can be accomplished when leaders work together to create economic growth and opportunity.feedback

Apr 29 2017

No, Mr. President, they're not. I think they're trying to be responsible.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I wouldn't overreact to the short-term thing about loan growth, because there's so many things that affect it, When you have a new president and they get going, the nine months after the 100 days is going to be a sausage-making period...to expect it to be smooth sailing, that would just be silly.feedback

Apr 13 2017

I could care less [if] banks, the nonbanks do it. My point about that was how it's hurting the growth of America.feedback

Apr 13 2017

They want to find the right people for those jobs. I gather they are talking to lots of people. But even after they announced it, remember they need to be vetted and confirmed, and that ... can take 90 days. So the sooner the better, but I think getting the right people is equally important.feedback

Apr 13 2017

It is a pro-growth agenda, tax, infrastructure, regulatory reform. And that is a good thing.feedback

Apr 13 2017

I wouldn't overreact to the short term in our loan growth with so many things that affect it.feedback

Apr 13 2017

U.S. consumers and businesses are healthy overall and with pro-growth initiatives and improving collaboration between government and business, the U.S. economy can continue to improve. I wouldn't overreact to the short-term thing about loan growth. To expect it to be to be smooth sailing would just be silly.feedback

Apr 05 2017

I hate to tell you, he's right. We all know that. The Chinese know it. They steal intellectual property. There's cybersecurity. There are very high tariffs for certain things. This is a slow train wreck. Here's what I told everybody: When you get on the airplane, you better be rooting for the success of the pilot. I'm a patriot. I will do what I can to help the United States of America. And that includes helping whoever's president.feedback

Apr 05 2017

We should be ringing the national alarm bell that inner city schools are failing our children.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Brexit

This does not entail moving many people in the next two years. Our fear, however, is that it could instead result in political unrest that would force the EU to split apart. We will keep a close eye on the situation in Europe over the next several years.feedback

Apr 04 2017

We are forcing great talent overseas by not allowing these young people to build their dreams here.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Immigration

We hope that the advent of Brexit would lead the EU to focus on fixing its issues – immigration, bureaucracy, the ongoing loss of sovereign rights and labor inflexibility – and thereby pulling the EU and the monetary union closer together.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Brexit

This does not entail moving many people in the next two years. Regarding Brexit, a key concern is to make sure our company is prepared to support our clients on day one – the first day after the actual Brexit occurs, approximately two years from now. We are confident we will be able to develop and expand the capabilities that our EU subsidiaries and branches will need to serve our clients properly in Europe under EU law. This will require acquiring regulatory approvals, transferring certain technologies and moving some people.feedback

Apr 04 2017

Essentially, too big to fail has been solved – taxpayers will not pay if a bank fails. The American public has the right to demand that if a major bank fails, they, as taxpayers, would not have to pay for it, and the failure wouldn't unduly harm the U.S. economy. In my view, these demands have now both been met. Market panic will never disappear entirely, and regulations must be flexible enough to allow banks to act as a bulwark against it rather than forcing financial institutions into a defensive crouch that will only make things worse.feedback

Apr 04 2017

We believe the anticipated reversal of many negatives and the expectation of a more business-friendly environment, coupled with our sustained, strong business results, are among the reasons our stock price has done so well this past year. We believe we have substantial opportunities in the decades ahead to drive organic growth in our company. We have confidence in the underlying growth in the U.S. and global economies, which will fuel the growth in our customer base.feedback

Mar 14 2017

If all companies did [with repatriated funds] was pay dividends and buy back stock, think of that as QE4 ... and far cheaper, in my opinion. The shareholder will decide what to do with it. It's not like it disappears after that. It is fuel to the system. That money that isn't brought back is going to be reinvested in a foreign country, in a plant or acquisition, which has been happening, and never to return.feedback

Mar 10 2017

It seems like he's woken up the animal spirits.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Our company continued to invest through the crisis – often when others could not – in order to capture future growth. … The best example of this is in our consumer business, where [the bank's net interest margin, or the spread between the rate it pays for deposits and what it collects on loans] has gone from 2.95 percent to 2.20 percent (from 2009 to 2014). This spread reduction has reduced our net interest income by $2.5 billion, from $10 billion to $7.5 billion – or if you look at it per account, from $240 to $180.feedback

Mar 08 2017

This does not mean we should not listen to what investors are saying – it just means we should not overreact to their comments – particularly if their views reflect temporary factors. While the stock market over a long period of time is the ultimate judge of performance, it is not a particularly good judge over a short period of time. A more consistent measure of value is our tangible book value, which has had healthy growth over time. ... In fact, when Mr. Market gets very moody and depressed, we think it might be a good time to buy back stock.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Since we strongly believe this is a temporary phenomenon and we did not want to take more risk to increase our net interest margin (which we easily could have done), we continued to open new accounts. Over those years, we added 4.5 million accounts – and, in fact, very good sizable accounts. This has reduced our operating margins from 36 percent to 32 percent, but we don't care. When normal interest rates return, we believe this will add $3 billion to revenue and improve our operating margin to more than 40 percent. We do not manage to temporary P/E ratios – the tail should not wag the dog.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Quarterly earnings – even annual earnings – frequently are the result of actions taken over the past five or 10 years.feedback

Mar 08 2017

In the financial services world, it is easy to stretch for growth by reducing underwriting standards or taking on increasingly higher levels of risk. But such an approach is foolish longer term. For example, last year we declined to underwrite negative amortization mortgage loans and option adjustable-rate mortgages. That may have hurt our 2006 earnings a bit, but we believe it was the right decision for the company. Most of our growth will be organic. We have been doing this successfully for a decade – and opportunities abound.feedback

Feb 15 2017 - Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley is coming.feedback

Jan 20 2017

CEOs want this nation to succeed. We are ready to work collaboratively with President Trump, Congress, state and local leaders, unions and all the many institutions of civil society to create more opportunity for all Americans.feedback

Jan 20 2017

There is no better time than now for enacting reasoned policies that achieve those goals. Americans can only benefit if we modernize our tax system, take a smarter approach toward regulation and invest in infrastructure.feedback

Jan 20 2017

The swearing-in of a new president represents a moment of opportunity for America and all Americans. The United States is well positioned to build on the momentum the U.S. economy is already showing. President Trump and the new Congress have both identified economic growth and job creation as top priorities, and America's business leaders fully agree.feedback

Jan 18 2017

It's going to take nine months, 12 months. The real detail work has to get done.feedback

Jan 18 2017

One of the fictions here is that the marketing cost ... gets booked over 12 months. The benefit of the card gets booked over 7 years. The card was so successful it cost us $200 million, but we expect that to have a good return on it. I wish it was a $400 million loss.feedback

Jan 17 2017

If you do that you are just irresponsible, I am sorry. And, you probably aren't a very good investor, either.feedback

Jan 17 2017

I know some of you here do it because you are lazy.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - Twitter

God knows how any of you can place your vote based on ISS or Glass Lewis.feedback

Jan 13 2017

Our results this quarter were a strong end to another record year, reflecting our intense client focus and solid performance across our businesses. In the Consumer business,we had double digit growth in deposits and core loan balances,our credit card sales volume was a record, and for the year we had over $1 trillion of merchant processing volume.feedback

Jan 13 2017

The economy is getting a little bit better. Interest rates help and looking forward, you probably have a better political, legal and regulatory environment.feedback

Dec 08 2016

It is a waste of time.feedback

Dec 08 2016 - Dodd-Frank Act

It has always been rational to look at major legislation and open it up, take a look at it, recalibrate it, change it a little bit.feedback

Nov 21 2016 - American economy

They really should get someone hugely qualified to help grow the American economy and negotiate with overseas and understand the critical role that business also plays in all of this.feedback

Nov 11 2016

We want to do our share to bring them back into society and give them jobs.feedback

Nov 09 2016

We need to listen to those voices.feedback

Oct 17 2016 - Immigration

If the next president does the right things around immigration, corporate and individual tax reform, [and] infrastructure spending, America would be booming. That boom would help the people who need it the most, the people at the bottom of the ladder.feedback

Oct 07 2016

Brexit makes the chance of the euro zone not surviving 10 years from now five times higher.feedback

Oct 04 2016 - Deutsche Bank

There is no reason that Deutsche Bank shouldn't get over its problems.feedback

Oct 03 2016

They have plenty of capital, plenty of liquidity. We want all these banks to get through because it's better for everybody.feedback

Sep 12 2016

It's time to raise rates.feedback

Sep 12 2016

I'd say, ask David Rubenstein.feedback

Sep 12 2016

Let's just raise rates. Twenty-five basis points is a drop in the bucket.feedback

Aug 07 2016

If we could pull something like that off, that would be great for Italy.feedback

Aug 02 2016

If the next president focuses on the right things, I think we're going to 4 percent. Those right things are proper immigration reform, proper infrastructure spending. The Democrats say spend a lot of money. I kind of agree with that. The Republicans say it shouldn't be bridges to nowhere, big pork barrel [projects]. I agree with that.feedback

Aug 02 2016

I wouldn't overreact to short-term data. I'm not convinced that GDP data is actually that accurate anymore. What I see is more household formation, more people buying homes.feedback

Aug 02 2016

If we have proper growth in the United States, we'll start to normalize interest rates.feedback

Aug 02 2016

I'm all right. My parents had been ill for awhile. So you have some time to get prepared. My family is very tight. And we were all there right to the end. And so it was as nice as it could possibly have been. I love my children, I spend a lot of time with them.feedback

Aug 01 2016

Unfortunately, that could be one of the fat-tail outcomes of Brexit. It may take more than five years, but may very well happen.feedback

Aug 01 2016

Normalizing interest rates would be a good thing.feedback

If we can find a good place to open a branch, we'll open a branch.feedback

JPMorgan Chase continued to perform well in all of our major businesses.feedback

Jul 12 2016

Our minimum salary for American employees today is $10.15 an hour ... almost $3 above the current national minimum wage. Over the next three years, we will raise the minimum pay for 18,000 workers to $12 to $16.50 an hour, depending on geographic and market factors.feedback

Jul 12 2016

Wages for many Americans have gone nowhere for too long. Many employees who will receive this increase work as bank tellers and customer service representatives. Above all, it enables more people to begin to share in the rewards of economic growth.feedback

Jul 07 2016

The key issue is the 'passport rule' that we have in London and allows us to provide services to clients in the European Union. However, if the EU imposes new conditions on Britain ... the worst-case scenario is we would have to move some thousands of employees to other branches in the euro zone.feedback

Jun 30 2016

In the months ahead ... we may need to make changes to our European legal entity structure and the location of some roles. While these changes are not certain, we have to be prepared to comply with new laws as we serve our clients around the world.feedback

Jun 22 2016

After a Brexit, we cannot do it all here, and we will have to start planning for that. I don't know if it means 1,000 jobs, 2,000 jobs; it could be as many as 4,000.feedback

Jun 15 2016

We try to be very conservative, always. And, so, we're not trying to put up as little as possible. You know me, I'd put up more if I could. But accounting rules dictate what you can do.feedback

Jun 06 2016

Auto is clearly a little stretched, in my opinion. Someone is going to get hurt. ... We don't do much of that.feedback

We're going to have a real time system up and running.feedback

May 11 2016

What does work, is collaboration, analysis and getting people together across the spectrum of civic society, not-for-profit, education, government and business.feedback

May 11 2016

It was serendipity that I bought at the bottom, as a opposed to I made the stock market go up. The stock market has hundreds of millions of participants making their own decisions everyday. I think I was just fortunate on the other side.feedback

Jan 20 2016 - RMB

When the market is this bad, it's reasonable to say it might be telling you something, but it's also reasonable to say 'maybe it's not'. My own view is that you've had four or five things very different that are taking place. China scared people with this bungling of the yuan ? their currency ? and their stock market, and their lower growth changed flows around the world. Commodity prices are down substantially now.feedback

Jan 20 2016

I'm hopeful that this is just all a big adjustment. A fast adjustment might be better than a painful, slow death. I've always said normalization is a good thing.feedback

Jan 14 2016

The oil folks have been surprisingly resilient.feedback

Jan 14 2016
