How can we stop reputation erosion?
ABA Banking Journal
There's more news on JP Morgan Chase's continuing reputation risk problems. One prominent article suggested that the bank may face legal costs and regulatory fines at least equal to the financial loss associated with the London Whale transaction in the spring of 2012.

When that brand advertises through social media, placement of its advertisement in terms of the content against which it runs raises additional issues.
