JPMorgan investment chief out

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — JPMorgan Chase announced Monday that Ina Drew, the firm’s chief investment officer, has left the bank after revelations of a $2 billion loss sustained over the past six weeks.

A statement issued by the company said Drew made the decision to retire, a move that was widely expected after the company disclosed the unit she managed had suffered a major loss.
