Jamie Dimon Spars With Analyst - 'That’s Why I’m Richer Than You'

Mike Mayo On The Phone Still

Way to go, Jamie.

Dominic Chu reports on an exchange Tuesday during a call, between Credit Agricole Securities Analyst Mike Mayo and JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon over capital ratios.

'What I hear UBS saying in their presentations is, ‘If I’m an affluent customer, I’ll feel a lot better about going to UBS knowing that they have a 13% capital ratio than another big bank with a 10% ratio', said Mayo. 'Do you agree with that or disagree ?'

Dimon countered, 'So you would go to UBS' rather than JPMorgan ?

'I didn’t say that', Mayo responded. 'I said that was their argument'.

'That’s why I’m richer than you', Dimon said, drawing laughter from the audience.

Chu speaks on Bloomberg Television's Street Smart.
