That’s ‘Professor Dimon,’ Thank You Very Much

After beating cancer, Jamie Dimon — like many survivors — is looking to give back after a life in banking. The 56-year-old JPMorgan Chase chief executive is considering philanthropy and teaching when he leaves the bank he’s helmed for 10 years, he said during his first public appearance in New York since finishing the cancer treatment last month. “I still want to make it a better world,” he said Tuesday at the Javits Center for an industry conference. “I think when I’m done with this, I’m going to do it more directly.” [NYP]

Those interested should search 'extreme inflatables'The Federal Reserve Bank of New York failed to examine J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.’s investment unit ahead of the bank’s 2012 “London Whale” trading debacle, despite a recommendation from other Fed supervisors that they look at the unit involved in the trades, according to a new report. The Fed’s Office of Inspector General released a report Tuesday saying Fed supervisors didn’t follow up on signs that the bank’s chief investment office—where the traders engaging in the problematic derivatives transactions were based—needed a closer look. A team of experts from across the Fed system recommended that the New York Fed conduct “a full-scope examination” of the unit in 2009, but the New York Fed never did so, the report said. [WSJ]
