JPMorgan is the biggest US bank by assets and a bellwether for the global financial system. So when the firm’s senior-most leaders talk, Wall Street pays attention.

The bank has been headed by CEO Jamie Dimon since 2005, and he’s the longest-running big bank chief on Wall Street. Dimon, who turned 65 in March, had a health scare in the summer of 2020. But it’s long been something of a running joke to bank watchers that, whenever pressed on retirement plans, Dimon will often respond by saying five more years.

The bank this week granted Dimon a big stock award that pays off at the firm’s shares rise, and he has to stay around five more years to collect it.

The pair will take over running the division from Gordon Smith, who’s retiring this year from his roles as co-president and co-chief operating officer of the firm and CEO of CCB.

Over the next five to six years, the bank is considering hiring as many as 4,000 advisors to roughly double its current base, US Wealth Management Chief Executive Officer Kristin Lemkau told Insider this fall.

And in the past year, the bank has hired about 100 advisors for its private-bank division, which oversees more than $836 billion in client assets and caters to …read more
