2013 Big Bank Resolutions

Trust y’all had a super break and then suddenly here we are
in 2013.

13, unlucky for some … or maybe not.

It’s looking like a nice and lucky year for some, and
hopefully for banks in particular.

After five years of complete rubbish, it’s about time.

Sure, this year will be full of challenges – regulatory ones
being the key – but there are other changes afoot and, finally, we appear to be
recovering from the meltdown of 2008.

So, in the spirit of 2013, here are the New Year’s
Resolutions of five big bank CEO’s:

I will … learn to program computers.  Stephen
Hester, CEO, Royal Bank of Scotland

I will … give up DIY and stop fixing things. Antony Jenkins, CEO, Barclays Bank

I will … learn Esperanto.  
Mario Draghi, President, European
Central Bank

I will … seriously diet, lose weight and get thinner.  Sergio
Emotti, CEO, UBS

I will … spend more time whale watching.  Jamie Dimon,
CEO of JPMorgan Chase
