Episode #24: JPMorgan Insider Tells All: The Hidden Damage Big Banks Do to Investors


How much damage can big banks do to investors? To hear it from a JPMorgan insider, it’s the hidden stuff that hurts the most.

In the latest episode of Untamed Ethos, hosted by Dr. Joshua Wilson, listeners and viewers are privy to an unflinchingly candid discussion with Robert M. Mennella, the author of “Heavily Redacted: A JPMorgan Whistleblower’s Journey.” Mennella, with the expertise of a seasoned Wall Street veteran and Founder of EQW/ Eqwitty Research, pulls back the corporate curtain to shine a light on the darker practices within JPMorgan Chase, a financial behemoth whose influence spans the globe.

Mennella details with chilling clarity the myriad ways the bank’s advisors, bound by a system that incentivizes personal and corporate gain over client welfare, are steered into pushing bank-profitable products. He expounds on how opaque fees, misrepresented investment performances, and unsuitable product recommendations have become commonplace, potentially compromising the financial health of unsuspecting clients. Mennella doesn’t shy away from calling out the regulatory evasion techniques employed by the bank or discussing the unsettling impact of a mysterious $500,000 from JPMorgan that coincided with investigatory proceedings.

This episode promises a rare window into the mechanisms by which some big banks may place profits before their clients, underscoring the need for a transformative shift toward transparency and ethicality in the financial industry. The dialogue is also a call to action, empowering investors with the knowledge required to navigate the complexity of investment with big banks.

Untamed Ethos invites its audience to engage in this conversation by sharing their experiences and subscribing to the channel for more enlightening content. Mennella’s book is also available for those looking to delve deeper into his journey and the revelations he brings to the fore.

Amidst a world where financial maneuverings often remain obscured from the public eye, Untamed Ethos stands as a beacon of truth, advocating for the informed investor and an industry that upholds integrity at its core.
