JPMorgan chief says ‘hurricane’ is bearing down on economy
Jamie Dimon claims oil could reach $175 a barrel on fallout from Ukraine war.
JPMorgan Chase chief executive Jamie Dimon on Wednesday warned investors to brace themselves for an economic “hurricane” as the war in Ukraine and policy tightening by the Federal Reserve roil markets.
Dimon struck a gloomier tone on the economic outlook than in remarks he made just last week during JPMorgan’s first investor day in two years, when he referred to the threats as “storm clouds”.
“I said they’re storm clouds, they’re big storm clouds here. It’s a hurricane,” the CEO of the largest US bank by assets said at a financial services conference organised by Autonomous Research.
