As several of the bank's top executives, including at least one that people believed could be Dimon's successor, announce they are going their separate ways, Richard Bove, a Rafferty Capital Markets analyst, told TheStreet Dimon has no plans on leaving.
He has "created a lot of very talented executives," Bove said of Dimon, who took over as CEO in 2006. "These people have the ability to run companies, but they're not going to run JPMorgan Chase, because he's not going to go away."
Here are six top executives who have left the largest U.S. lender.
JPMorgan announced on Thursday that Matt Zames, its chief operating officer who led the overhaul of the bank's chief investment office after the 2012 London Whale trading loss, is leaving. Zames worked at JPMorgan for 13 years and was widely viewed as a potential successor to Dimon.
In spring 2013, Frank Bisignano departed JPMorgan to run payment processor First Data, according to American Banker. He was the co-chief operating officer with Zames at the time, which promoted Zames to take on the position alone.
The bank had announced Zames would take over for chief information officer Ina Drew, who resigned after presiding over the bank's $2-billion trading loss, in May 2012, The New York Times reported.
Jes Staley, the former CEO of JPMorgan's investment bank, is now CEO of the U.K. bank, Barclays (BCS) , after he stepped down from JPMorgan in December 2015 after 34 years.
Staley later brought over Paul Compton, former JPMorgan chief administrative officer, as chief operations officer, and Tim Throsby, former JPMorgan global head of equities, to run Barclays' investment bank, according to The Telegraph.
Michael Cavanagh was the chief financial officer at JPMorgan, before leaving in early 2014 after he led a task force that investigated the London Whale trading scandal, according to Deadline. Cavanagh, who had worked at JPMorgan for 14 years, became the co-chief operating officer of asset management company The Carlyle Group. During the summer of 2015, he took over as the chief financial officer at cable provider Comcast (CMCSA - Get Report) . He, too, had been considered an heir of Dimon.

Zubrow served as JPMorgan's chief risk officer until January 2012, during the 2008 financial meltdown when the company lost $2 billion and while the company was under federal investigation. Later that year, he became the company's head of corporate regulatory affairs, but he left the bank in November 2012.
Bill Winters is the former co-head of JPMorgan's investment bank. He was ousted in 2009 after 25 years. In June 2015, he took over as CEO of the U.K. bank, Standard Chartered (SCBFF) .
