NEW YORK (Reuters) – JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM) head of asset and wealth management Mary Callahan Erdoes said on Wednesday her division of the bank is looking into possible opportunities for add-on acquisitions.

“I wouldn’t assume we haven’t done anything,” Erdoes said when asked why her unit has not announced an acquisition deal. “You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs … (to know) what’s out there.”

Erdoes, whose division manages institutional client investments and private banking, said there has been a significant increase in deal activity across the industry. While JPMorgan has looked at a number of possible deals, the bar for an acquisition is high, she said.

“I don’t think it’s a good idea to be sitting still,” Erdoes said at a virtual conference hosted by Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB).

In the wide-ranging discussion, Erdoes also said lending at the private bank has risen 17% so far this year from 2020.
