“Dimon is telling people inside the bank that he is going to spend billions, talking about billions, with what the FOX Business Network has learned, to upgrade compliance to build what he has termed a regulatory moat…just to protect the bank. A set of systems, billions of dollars worth of systems to protect the bank from just about any sort of potential large scandal like the London Whale and other things in the future.
