MiB: Kelly Coffey on Advancing in Finance


On this week’s Masters in Business radio podcast, I speak with Kelly Coffey, CEO of the JPM Private Bank, with more than $650 billion in client assets.

Coffey is one of the most senior women in finance, managing one of the largest investor private investment banks in the world. She discusses what it takes for women to advance in the world of finance, and what obstacles must be overcome.

Coming out of the JPM training program, she was immediately thrown into the Argentinian debt crisis, spending 5 years in South America. Eventually, she found herself running JPMorgan’s Derivatives Marketing Group, and that put her a front row seat for the financial crisis. She describes what it was like to be a key player in the JPM takeover of Bear Stearns.
