Moody's downgrades JP Morgan, 14 other banks

June 21, 2012 -- UK banks downgraded include Royal Bank of Scotland, Barclays and HSBC.

In the US, Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are among those marked down.

BBC business editor Robert Peston reported on Tuesday that the downgrades were coming and said that banks were concerned as it may make it harder for them to borrow money commercially.

"All of the banks affected by today's actions have significant exposure to the volatility and risk of outsized losses inherent to capital markets activities," Moody's global banking managing director Greg Bauer said in the agency's statement.

The other institutions that have been downgraded are Credit Suisse, UBS, BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole, Societe Generale, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Morgan Stanley. Read the whole BBC article

What Congress and the SEC need to know about Chase Bank 

Defendant Jeff Childs, former manager of Milwaukee downtown branch

  •  Chase settles fraudulent marketing case in Wisconsin, after 14 months and paying more than $50,000 1n legal fees to block discovery requests. In May, the bank and its attorneys reneged on a $5,6000 settlement offer, opting instead to turn over confidential information that hundreds of customers were cheated at the Downtown Milwaukee Branch alone while former manager Jeff Childs was in charge. Childs, a former furniture salesmasn who no longer works as manager, says his new job as commercial banker was a promotion. 



JPMorgan Swap Deals Spur Probe as Default Stalks Alabama County

By William Selway and Martin Z. Braun

May 22, 2008 -- (Bloomberg) -- As nighttime temperatures plunged in Birmingham, Alabama, last October, Dora Bonner had a choice: either pay the gas bill so she could heat the home she shares with four grandchildren, or send the Birmingham Water Works a $250 check for her water and sewer bill.

Bonner, who is 73 and lives on Social Security, decided to keep the house from freezing.

``I couldn't afford the water, so they shut it off,'' she says.

Bonner's sewer bills have risen more than fourfold in the past decade. So have those of others in Jefferson County, which has 659,000 residents and includes Birmingham, the state's largest city.

What's threatening to increase them even more isn't the high cost of treating waste; it's the way county officials chose to finance the $3.2 billion in debt they took on to build a new sewer system. The county relied on advice from a bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co., to arrange its funding, rather than use competitive bidding.
