(Reuters) - U.S. bank JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) is planning to cut hundreds of jobs across its consumer division, Bloomberg reported bloom.bg/2GsDvzw on Tuesday, citing people briefed on the matter.
The report did not mention the exact number of jobs to be cut but said the planned layoffs represent about 1% of employees in the unit.
JPMorgan will notify the impacted staff on Feb. 6 and give them a chance to apply for other roles at the bank, according to the report.
The consumer unit includes the credit-card, deposit, home and auto lending businesses, and makes for about half of the bank’s revenue.
JPMorgan told Reuters it had no comments on the report.
