NEW YORK - JP Morgan Chase (NYSE: JPM ) & Co. has revealed its financial performance for the fourth quarter, presenting a mixed picture of growth and decline. The bank's asset and wealth management division enjoyed a 7% increase in net income, reaching $1.217 billion, alongside an 11% rise in net revenue to $5.095 billion. This segment's growth is noted to be organic, at a modest 2%, when excluding contributions from the recent First Republic Bank (OTC: FRCB ) acquisition.

In contrast to the asset management division's success, JP Morgan Chase's overall net income for the quarter experienced a 15% decrease, settling at $9.307 billion. However, it wasn't all downward trends for the banking giant as total revenue saw a 12% escalation to $38.574 billion. This increase in revenue was bolstered by a strong investment banking pipeline, which brought in higher fees from equity and debt underwriting activities.

Despite the dip in net income, the bank's financial health appears resilient with its Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio holding steady at 15%. This key measure of a bank's financial strength indicates that JP Morgan maintains a stable position. Nevertheless, the bank did see a decline in return on equity, which now stands at 12%.
