JPMorgan parts company with with top bond trader

ezgif.com-resize (6)JP Morgan has swiftly severed ties with a top bond trader who circumvented its compliance procedures earlier this year as the bank moves to reinforce its commitment to risk management.

The bank fired its head of US Treasury trading Andrew Lombara in the second week of January, according to a regulatory filing with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

The dispute centered around Lombara’s “failure to adhere to certain control processes,” prompting JP Morgan to ask for his resignation, said the US bank. A Finra spokesman said the regulator will review the firing as a matter of practice as it does with all dismissals for cause.
