Summary: JP Morgan needs to improve its Board of Directors and Senior Management scores as well as its scores on its Internal Control Environment.


JP Morgan’s overall Board of Directors and Senior management score has been affected by weak Board effectiveness. Some key measures such as director stock ownership guidelines and other critical governance measures are in place. On its Internal Control Environment the company faces some challenges in its Board Audit Committee composition as well as a few potential Conflict of Interest situations. On the Social and Environmental front, JP Morgan scores exceptionally well. It discloses many environmental metrics such as emissions, electricity consumption and extent of lending to minorities.
