Today, I am pleased to announce the launch of our annual Corporate Responsibility Report, which showcases JPMorgan Chase’s approach to driving inclusive growth and enabling more people to share in the rewards of a growing economy.
For us, corporate responsibility is a strategic imperative. Underpinning this belief is a conviction that firms like ours have not only a responsibility and a vested interest in helping solve pressing societal challenges but also have a vital contribution to make. The reason is simple: The success of our firm is directly linked to the success of our communities.
Based on our experience around the world, we have developed and refined a model that is informed by data and evidence about what’s most effective at driving inclusive growth. Our conclusion:
Together, these are four fundamental pillars of opportunity and the focus of our efforts. The report highlights our model for impact through the lens of Detroit and showcases examples of our work in other cities around the globe. As we continue to learn and refine our approach, our goal is to continue sharing insights and fostering greater collaboration to address challenges. In that spirit, today I have the honor of participating in a conference in Berlin focused on improving cooperation and coordination across sectors to create economic opportunity for more people.
I hope that the lessons we have learned in Detroit and other cities can help spark a conversation across all sectors about effective approaches to solving challenges and driving inclusive economic growth. I encourage you to visit our website to download the full report and sign-up for email updates to learn more about our efforts.

Why are people with disabilities not using banks?
Results from the FDIC Household Survey tell us that people with disabilities are more likely to be cycling in and out of banking, and are less likely than their non-disabled peers to reopen a checking account in the future. Almost 50 percent of adults with disabilities nationwide are unbanked or underbanked.
During this webinar, you will learn about the recently released groundbreaking report from National Disability Institute: "Banking Status and Financial Behaviors of Adults with Disabilities: Findings from the FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households."

Regions is Top-Ranked Bank in the Nation for Customer Experience in New Temkin Survey
2017 Temkin Experience Ratings also show Regions is one of the top five companies across all industries for customer experience.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – March 13, 2017 – Regions Bank is the highest-ranked bank in the United States in the newly released 2017 Temkin Experience Ratings. The annual ratings are compiled by the Temkin Group, a national research firm that ranks companies based on cusomter experience.
The 2017 ratings evaluate over 300 companies from across 20 industries ranging from banks to supermarkets to retailers and more. In addition to being recognized as the highest-ranked company in the banking industry, Regions also tied as the fourth-highest rated company across all industries. Only Publix, Chick-Fil-A and the supermarket H-E-B ranked higher.
This is the fourth consecutive year Regions has ranked in the top 10 percent of companies in the ratings. Regions is also recognized as one of the companies that most outperformed its peers. The 2017 ratings represent Regions’ strongest performance in the Temkin survey to date.
“Regions is taking a very strategic approach toward constantly improving the customer experience,” said John Owen, head of the Regional Banking Group at Regions Bank. “From online and mobile banking, to our branch personnel and new ATM technologies, we are focused on providing greater convenience and value to the people and businesses we serve. Our teams are committed to offering superior service, as well as financial advice, guidance and education, to help customers reach their goals. We are proud that customer feedback consistently shows a positive experience with Regions, and our dedication to improving the customer experience will continue.”
In compiling the 2017 Temkin Experience Ratings, the Temkin Group surveyed 10,000 U.S. consumers who were asked to rate their recent interactions with a variety of companies. In all, 331 companies were included in the rankings. Survey participants were asked to evaluate their experiences with the companies across three categories: success, effort and emotion.
The success category asked customers to rate how well their experiences with various companies met their needs. The effort category focused on how easy it was for customers to accomplish their goals. The emotion category asked consumers to describe how they felt about their interactions with companies.
Further information on the rankings and companies included in the survey can be found on the Temkin Group’s “Experience Matters” website.

Today the CFE Fund announced three major resources to support local Bank On coalitions in their work connecting residents to safe, affordable and appropriate banking accounts.
First, we released the next two-year Bank On National Account Standards (2017-2018), which update the inaugural Standards. Notable changes include expanded allowable bill pay functionality: standard-meeting transaction accounts must either offer bill pay by the financial institution or instead provide consumers access to at least four free money orders or bank checks per month. These changes are critical to helping consumers pay bills to individuals and small businesses, such as landlords, who might not accept online payments.
Second, to support the use of these new Standards, the CFE Fund launched an online Bank On account validation and certification process. Banks and credit unions across the country, at no cost, now can submit for validation products they offer across their branch networks that meet Bank On National Account Standards. Validation will be conducted by a third party validator partner, the National Consumer Law Center. The CFE Fund will certify financial products found to meet Bank On National Account Standards, and will disseminate a list of such certified financial institution products, and where they are available, for use by local coalitions, financial counselors and other nonprofit service providers, and consumers. Certified accounts will be identified by a national Bank On certification seal, above.
Third, the CFE Fund is released the opening chapters of the Bank On Coalition Playbook, a new resource to help equip local coalitions for banking access success. In addition to the National Account Standards, currently-released chapters include Guiding Principles for the Bank On movement, as well as a template Statement of Financial Institution Partnership Principles for articulating partnership expectations between local Bank On Coalitions and financial institutions. The CFE Fund will roll out new chapters throughout the year; please get in touch both with best practices to share with others or requests for creating future Playbook chapters!
Stay tuned for additional resources and opportunities from Bank On, including our still-open Capacity Grant Fund, and be sure to save the date for our next national Bank On conference at the Newseum in Washington, DC on May 23, 2017. The Conference Keynote Address will be delivered by Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Chairman Martin J. Gruenberg; we hope to see you there!
Thank you for your partnership.
