Here are the top nine banks and how they have been performing since the 2008 U.S. financial crisis.
While JPMorgan has fared better than many of its competitors since the 2008 financial downturn, the European debt crisis is a major threat to the bank, chief executive Jamie Dimon said in June. The bank acquired Washington Mutual and Bear Stearns with federal support in 2008 and was one of the few banks to grow during that time. It is now the largest asset-holding bank in the U.S. However, the firm’s reputation took a hit in May 2012 when Dimon disclosed a $2 billion loss on what he called “egregious” failures in risk management.Peter Foley/Bloomberg
