Top US banks set aside $6bn for credit losses in Q3

Quarterly provisions highest in two years

Of the nine banks analysed by Risk Quantum, JP Morgan set aside $1.5 billion in provisions for credit losses (PCLs), the most in absolute terms, marking a 40% quarter-on-quarter increase. PNC Bank’s charges for the period, at $241 million, were 569% higher
