In an SEC submitting seen by Fortune, JPMorgan’s board authorised a compensation improve from $34.5 million in 2022 to $36 million for 2023.

Dimon’s subsequent steps

JPMorgan’s succession plan is likely one of the best-kept secrets and techniques within the business, with Dimon lengthy responding “five more years” if requested when he could transfer on.

In 2021 it appeared Dimon’s quip could lastly be a critical one, after the board authorised a one-off incentive package deal of $50 million to remain till not less than 2026.
