JPMorgan investors on edge over vote on Dimon; what if they win? (Reuters)
As final ballots come in on a proposal to strip JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon of his chairman title, some worry about what will happen if shareholders win what will likely be a close vote. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM)’s annual meeting on Tuesday will bring to head a months-long and bitter shareholder campaign demanding more oversight of Dimon, who has suggested that he may eventually leave the bank if he loses the vote. Investors say that while Dimon, 57, may need more oversight after the bank posted $6.2 billion in losses from failed derivative trades last year, they do not want him to quit.

JP Morgan, under pressure, gives polling information to investors (IFRAsia)
JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), under pressure from the New York Attorney General’s office, has agreed to give investors information about upcoming ballot votes, after the company that collects votes on the measures stopped giving out polling information last week. The bank’s annual meeting is on Tuesday, and by far the most controversial matter up for vote is whether bank head Jamie Dimon should retain his chief executive role but be stripped of his chairman title. Investors that sponsored the measure, including a government workers’ union pension fund, said the bank’s CEO has too much sway over the board, and needs more oversight. Dimon has hinted that if he is no longer chairman, he may leave the bank.
