June 12 (Bloomberg) -- JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said his firm’s $2 billion trading loss was an aberration, according to congressional testimony prepared for delivery tomorrow.

“When we make mistakes, we take them seriously and often are our own toughest critic,” Dimon said in the remarks ahead of his appearance before the Senate Banking Committee to discuss losses linked to credit derivatives by New York-based JPMorgan’s chief investment office. “While we can never say we won’t make mistakes -- in fact, we know we will -- we do believe this to be an isolated event.”
