Jamie Dimon

JPMorgan has agreed to pay bond insurer Syncora Guarantee $400m to end lawsuits over mortgage-backed securities.

Bloomberg reports that the insurer had claimed JPMorgan and firms the bank had acquired misrepresented the quality of loans included in securitizations.

Syncora, which announced a deal on February 24th without disclosing terms, said in a February 28th annual regulatory report on its website that it’s getting $400m in cash from the lender.

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, 57, has said his preference is to settle disputes tied to behaviour from the financial crisis.
