Project Management role in Finance Control team



The Dodd-Frank Act requires large, systemically important financial institutions such as JPMorgan Chase to submit Board-approved Recovery & Resolution Plans ("RRPs"; a.k.a. Living Wills) to US regulators annually and upon the occurrence of material changes to the Company.  Recovery Plans need to demonstrate how the firm would recover if the firm were to experience significant decreases in capital and liquidity as a result of a severe, crisis event.  Resolution Plans need to demonstrate how JPM would be resolved in an orderly way (i.e., without causing a major market disruption), if the company ever became bankrupt.  These plans are a strategic priority for the firm as failure to produce comprehensive, credible plans could lead to more stringent capital, leverage or liquidity requirements, and ultimately, to possible firm-wide structural/organizational changes. Similar regulatory requirements are in the process of being developed in Asian jurisdictions.
