In a presentation, finance chief Marianne Lake cited about $3 billion in cost efficiencies as one reason why JPMorgan disagreed with analysts and investors who said it would be better for shareholders if the bank were to break itself up. If JPMorgan were to split in two, Lake said, it would be required to duplicate its finance, risk and audit divisions, among others, at great expense.
“These are not trivial things,” Lake said. “Scale has always defined the winner in banking.”
Nevertheless, the larger and more complex banks become, the more regulators have insisted they hold on to more capital as a cushion against potential losses that could destabilize the financial system.
On Tuesday, JPMorgan said it has raised its target for a key regulatory measure of capital to 12 percent from the 10 percent-plus it gave a year earlier. The goal includes a “buffer” to protect the bank from swings below its expected total requirement from U.S. regulators.
In order to prevent even higher capital requirements, executives said the bank will shed up to $100 billion of non-operating deposits, or extra cash that clients keep in their accounts.
