Imagine you are the chief financial officer (CFO) of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Given the positive macroeconomic trends, including improvements in labor market conditions, the Federal Reserve recently increased the federal funds rate. With the continued improvement in economic outlook, the Federal Reserve is poised to increase the federal funds rate again in the near future. The Fed believes that with the gradual increase in monetary policy, the economic activities and labor market will strengthen and inflation will remain consistent. As the CFO of JPMorgan Chase & Co, you must analyze and evaluate the likely impacts of the aforementioned Federal Reserve monetary policy actions to the wider economy (and specifically, to capital markets), as well as the resulting implications for your firm. Based on your assessment, you will put forth various recommendations to the company’s board for improving their financial position while safeguarding against corporate risk.)
