JP Morgan Chase CEO Discusses Risk Management

Yesterday, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon shared his views on the financial crisis with Charlie Rose at the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association annual meeting in New York.  In the interview, Mr. Dimon reflected on risk management approaches taken by many financial institutions leading up to the crisis.  He stated, “You should never rely solely on VaR, Basel I or Basel II for risk management practices.  If you did, it was a mistake.”   He went on to explain that sound risk management practices require both quantitative analysis and management judgment to be effective.  He also noted that there are legitimate failures in the application of the Basel II Capital Accord that left many institutions with insufficient capital positions.   His full remarks can be viewed in the video web link below.
