JPMorgan’s reported net revenue increased 9% year-over-year to $41.9 billion while its managed revenue rose 8% to $42.5 billion in Q1 2024. Net income grew 6% to $13.4 billion while EPS rose 8% to $4.44. Both revenue and earnings beat expectations.

“Many economic indicators continue to be favorable. However, looking ahead, we remain alert to a number of significant uncertain forces. First, the global landscape is unsettling – terrible wars and violence continue to cause suffering, and geopolitical tensions are growing. Second, there seems to be a large number of persistent inflationary pressures, which may likely continue. And finally, we have never truly experienced the full effect of quantitative tightening on this scale. We do not know how these factors will play out, but we must prepare the Firm for a wide range of potential environments to ensure that we can consistently be there for clients.” Jamie Dimon, CEO, JPMorgan
