The banking crisis is over, says Jamie Dimon. Why is he so sure?

The banking crisis is definitely the biggest event of recent years. A situation that has caused panic and billions of dollars of damage. It seems to have died down for a while and no one knows what to expect. Except for the CEO of JPMorgan, who is convinced that there is no longer anything to worry about. Why?

Jamie Dimon believes the banking crisis is over

The good news is that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, who is often seen as the voice of the financial industry, believes that the effects of the crisis are probably over - even if the Fed doesn't cut rates. Could more bank failures be coming? "I don't know," Dimon said on television Thursday. "But if they do, frankly, it's not a problem. I think we're getting close to the end of this particular crisis."

Dimon reiterated his view that the problems that led to SVB's collapse were obvious and should have been noticed by bank management. He said everyone in the industry knew about the dangers of rising interest rates and uninsured depositors that dragged SVB down.

As the only CEO of a major bank to head his firm during the 2008 global financial crisis, Dimon stressed that the latest banking crisis was not unlike that episode.

"This is not 2008. It's much more limited. There are only a handful of banks that had this particular problem. Eventually, one way or another, it will be resolved. I think people should take a deep breath," he said, arguing that many banks will report good profits in the next few weeks despite the crisis.

Still, Dimon conceded that it is the public failure of a few banks that will lead to tighter lending conditions - meaning less credit for businesses and consumers - and he said that equates to another problem for the economy that increases the likelihood of a recession.

For nearly a year, the CEO has argued that the U.S. faces many serious risks - including war, inflation and rising interest rates - that could trigger a recession. Dimon, however, has never tied himself to a specific recession prediction and continues to follow that trend.


Who is Jamie Dimon?

Jamie Dimon is the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, which is one of the largest bank holding companies in the United States. Jamie Dimon is considered one of the most influential people in the financial industry.

He graduated from Harvard University with degrees in economics and law. He has been with JPMorgan Chase since 2000, becoming president in 2004 and chief executive officer in 2006. Under his leadership, the bank has become one of the most important financial institutions in the world. He is considered one of the most successful bankers of his generation. His tenure at the helm of JPMorgan Chase has been characterised by robust growth, strong performance and high financial stability.

He has influence with the US government and the Fed. He is a member of the White House economic advisory councils. He was one of those who exposed the bubble in 2008.

What do you think? Will banks post surprisingly good profits in the weeks ahead?
