About J.P. Morgan

The House of Dimon

J.P. Morgan offers a host of investment banking services, including M&A, corporate finance, capital markets, sales and trading, research, prime brokerage, and risk management. The investment bank is part of New York-based JPMorgan Chase & Co., a financial services firm with trillions of dollars in assets and more than 240,000 employees.  JPMorgan Chase provides investment banking, financial services, small business and commercial banking, financial transaction processing, asset management, and private equity services to clients across the globe. J.P. Morgan's storied history, which includes several mergers, extends back to 1799, when the New York State Legislature chartered The Manhattan Company to supply "pure and wholesome" water to the citizens of New York City. J.P. Morgan also has European roots. When J. Pierpont Morgan established J.P. Morgan & Co. in New York in 1871, the bank initially served as a New York sales and distribution office for his father's firm, J.S. Morgan & Co., an underwriter of European securities. In 2000, the Chase Manhattan Bank merged with J.P. Morgan & Co., and in 2004, Bank One and JPMorgan Chase joined forces, with the CEO of Bank One, Jamie Dimon, taking over the combined firm's reins. More recently, in 2008, JPMorgan Chase famously picked up its ailing competitor Bear Stearns. Although J.P. Morgan weathered the financial crisis better than most of its peers and has $2.3 trillion in assets, a 2012 trading loss in excess of an estimated $5 billion tarnished the firm's relatively clean record as of late. Today, J.P. Morgan's investment bank is headquartered in New York, and has international offices in London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sao Paolo, and Mumbai. Some of the world's biggest firms are clients of J.P. Morgan.
