Lake also said there could be "too much capacity" in the bank's fixed-income division in the longer-term, according to the report. That may lead to cuts in JPMorgan's business over time, depending on market conditions.

The firm said it suffered steep trading losses in the first quarter, and Citigroup (NYSE:C) and Barclays (London Stock Exchange: BARC-GB) are expected to follow suit.
