The roots of J.P. Morgan Global Trade can be traced back to the late 1700s and the establishment of The Bank of the Manhattan Company. This is the oldest institution in the collection of companies which, over the years, have converged to create JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Others include The Chase Manhattan Bank, Bank One, Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., Chemical Bank, The First National Bank of Chicago, National Bank of Detroit, and The Bear Stearns Companies Inc.
Each of these banking brands was, at the time, considered to be at the forefront of transformational innovations in the financial services industry, and JPMorgan Chase & Co. has long continued this trajectory. Today, the company is the world’s largest bank by market capitalisation, the largest investment bank in the world by revenue, and ranked 24th in the Fortune 500.
The company’s investment arm, J.P. Morgan Global Trade, operates across more than 50 countries in six regions and has also built a reputation as an industry pioneer. Its suite of core trade solutions helps clients to minimize risk, access short-term funding and count on cost-efficient debt support.
Through a strategic alliance with fintech disruptor Cleareye, J.P. Morgan Global Trade also offers market-leading technology to help investors futureproof their transactions while remaining compliant with changing regulation.
In all, JPMorgan Chase & Co. reported revenues of over USD 128bn in 2022.
