JPM CEO tells management fintech startups should make the “scared s—less”
While speaking to analysts on a JP Morgan Chase conference call, he apparently said the new breed of fintech players, led by PayPal, Square and tech giants around the world including e-commerce giant Alibaba have skyrocketed in users and market cap are a threat to the bank.
“…we should be scared s—less about that,” Dimon said. “We have plenty of resources, a lot of very smart people. We’ve just got to get quicker, better, faster… As you look at what we’ve done, you’d say we’ve done a good job, but the other people have done a good job too.”
Meanwhile, JPMorgan’s net income rose 42% to $12.1 billion, or $3.79 per share, in the quarter ended Dec. 31. Revenue rose 3% to $30.2 billion.
Dimon added that speedy vaccine deployments and nearly $2 trillion in stimulus have raised hopes of a recovery from one of the worst downturn in decades, prompting banks to start unwinding some of their massive loan loss reserves.
“You will have a better economy in the second half [of the year] because we have the vaccine coming, we have fiscal stimulus and people have saved up a lot of money,” JPMorgan Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said. “There will be a lot of pent-up demand and, hopefully, optimism because of the fact that we are getting through this mess. By sometime this summer you could have a very healthy economy.”

CFPB sues 1st Alliance for unlawful mortgage lending
The CFPB is alleging that since at least 2015, in the course of its mortgage-lending business, 1st Alliance used unlicensed employees to engage in mortgage-origination activities and interactions with consumers that required them to be licensed under state law, in violation of TILA and Regulation Z, its implementing regulation.
The CFPB also believes 1st Alliance used unqualified sales employees to deprive consumers of critical, accurate, and timely loan information was unfair.
The complaint is not a finding or ruling that the defendants have violated the law. The lawsuit seeks injunctions against the defendants, as well as damages, redress to consumers, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains, and the imposition of civil money penalties.
The CFPB also alleges that 1st Alliance representatives repeatedly engaged in misleading representations, omissions, or practices toward consumers. For example, it’s believed customers weren’t informed that their loans were being handled by unlicensed mortgage-loan originators.
