JPMorgan’s Pinto is laid back about losing the Super League gig
Daniel Pinto’s firm was bankrolling the breakaway soccer project, anticipating millions in fees, then the fans spoke out
New York/London — Daniel Pinto had one of the best seats in the house for the short-lived soccer Super League. At the start of the week, JPMorgan Chase’s co-president saw his firm bankrolling the breakaway football project, which soon inflamed the passions of fans worldwide.
