WASHINGTON--The chief executive of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. (JPM) told U.S. Senate lawmakers Wednesday it's "likely" that the company's board will seek to recoup pay from executives faulted in the bank's multi-billion dollar trading loss.
Asked about whether there would be "clawbacks" of such pay, CEO James Dimon said the company's board is still reviewing the matter. But he added that "You can expect we will take proper corrective action. And I would say it's likely, though this is subject to the board, but it's likely there will be clawbacks."
Mr. Dimon added that the bank has the ability to seek return of compensation "even for things like bad judgment." The bank, he said, can demand the return unvested stock and cash bonues. "it's pretty extensive, the ability to clawback," Mr. Dimon said.
