Jamie Dimon Off To Japan ?

Well it looks like JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is off to Japan - no, not to undertake a Red Adair-type operation and fix the county's radiation problems, but to rally the troops.

According to Dealbreaker, Dimon is expected to be visiting Japan in the next few days, and a number of other senior firm executives are also said to be going over to show their support for the bank's local staff, and the people of Japan generally.

In the meantime, Dimon and his wife Judy are said to have ordered and paid for 100 pizzas for the bank's Japan employees, which duly arrived earlier this week.

Finally, The New York Times reports that JPMorgan is thought likely to be one of a group of banks that will receive permission from the US Federal Reserve in the next few days to resume normal dividend payments. And one of the big winners from this decision will, of course, be our Jamie, who eventually stands to reap around $6m-a-year from his stock holdings in the firm. Nice.
