JPMorgan Execs Said Deposed in SEC Asset-Management Probe

Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the situation, JPMorgan Chase executives have been deposed and thousands of pages of internal documents subpoenaed as part of a U.S. investigation into the bank’s asset-management unit.

According to Bloomberg , the SEC’s enforcement division is looking at whether senior asset-management executives at the bank developed a policy of improperly steering clients into investments for JPMorgan’s own financial gain.
