Yellen Met With Blankfein, Dimon as Prospects as Fed Chief Rose

As speculation grew that Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Janet Yellen would be nominated to lead the central bank, her appointment book beginning in April became peppered with meetings with the titans of finance.

Yellen’s calendars from February through July, obtained by Bloomberg News through a Freedom of Information Act request, show 30-minute meetings or phone calls with chief executive officers from some of the biggest banks. These included John Stumpf of Wells Fargo & Co. on April 3, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co. on April 10, James Gorman of Morgan Stanley on April 15 and Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. on June 7.
