JPM CEO Says "System Is Very, Very Sound" After Second Largest US Bank Failure In History

• by Tyler Durden

Doesn't seem like it Jamie, old chap?

But hey, whatever you say now as the CEO of a bank that holds over 10% of America's deposits.

"We need large, successful banks in the largest economy," Dimon continued, proclaiming that "this is nothing like '08 or '09." 

Well he is right, in so much as this is far larger... and we really don't know where the CRE holes on bank balance sheets are (even as Charlie Munger warns they are everywhere).

The good news, Dimon declares regarding bank failures, "this is getting near the end of it." Thought how he would know that is hard to comprehend?

Finally, the too-biggest-to-fail bank CEO warned, "we are clearly gong to see some reduction in bank lending," implying JPMorgan will be doing "God's work" for The Fed by contracting credit without the need for rate-hikes.

For now, it's clear what the market thinks of JPM's state-sponsored buyout of FRC assets...
