AI is a theme every week, but what made this week different?

    AI, on repeat

    AI has sparked diverse opinions in the financial sector — it’s like something that’s too tough to swallow yet too crucial to discard. Whether embraced or resisted, AI is now a tough bullet to dodge — and the banking industry is gradually coming to terms with it.

    The country’s largest lender is one of the prominent cases of major banks integrating AI capabilities. Tearsheet has been following JPMorgan Chase’s AI growth trajectory since last year, with CEO Jamie Dimon championing AI and Gen AI, leading its integration into the bank’s operational framework.

    JPMorgan isn’t the only traditional bank in the game when it comes to embracing this technology; its peers — Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs — have also swiftly adapted, to stay competitive in the technological race. 

    Over the last year and up until now, there has been a steady stream of news about financial firms implementing advanced AI in multiple aspects — from back-end office operations and employee assistance to new chatbots for consumer inquiries and AI-enhanced products. While AI is now a constant topic, we look at some of the recent developments that have stood out this week.

    ‘In health but not in sickness’: Wells Fargo might be having second thoughts about its partnership with Bilt

    • Wells Fargo and Bilt's partnership over the co-branded credit cards appears to be teetering on the brink of trouble.
