WASHINGTON, May 17 (UPI) -- A U.S. Senate panel Thursday invited JPMorgan Chase chief Jamie Dimon to testify about the bank's more than $2 billion investment blunder.

The Senate Banking Committee this week announced it would have hearings into the trading losses, concentrating on regulation. U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., announced the invitation to Dimon following two planned hearings with regulators next Tuesday and June 6, CNNMoney reported.

Dimon announced last week JPMorgan Chase had lost $2 billion in 15 days in a series of bets on credit default swaps in a bid to hedge risks. The company's chief investment officer retired Monday in the wake of the losses and the trader responsible for them was said to be readying his departure.
