Record SEC Award Expected for JPMorgan Whistleblowers

The SEC is expected to present the largest whistleblower award in its history – possibly $70.6 million or more to be shared by two whistleblowers in a case involving a former adviser at JPMorgan Chase – according to a SEC letter released by one of the whistleblowers.

The award results from information that led to a record $307 million in regulatory fines against JPMorgan in 2015. The bank admitted it had been breaching its fiduciary duty for years by putting unwitting clients into the bank's own high-priced investments.
