In separate, coordinated actions, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency announced the execution of a Formal Agreement and Consent Order for a Civil Money Penalty with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., a wholly owned subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Actions were also taken by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Internal Revenue Service, the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and 25 state attorneys general.
