  • The provision for credit losses was $1.3 bln, up from $682 million last year.

Management. The Corporate & Investment Bank reported its best third quarter revenue. In the Consumer businesses, we grew
both loans and deposits double-digits, and our new card product, Sapphire Reserve, has gotten a great response – underscoring our unwavering commitment to enhancing customer engagement.”

Dimon added: “Over the past months we have continued our extraordinary efforts and submitted what we believe is a credible Resolution Plan, as we remain focused on our regulatory and control agenda.”
