JP Morgan Chase

JP Morgan Chase & Co. is a multinational banking and financial services holding company. It is the largest bank in the United States by the total assets of US$2.415 trillion. The company was founded in 2000, when Chase Manhattan Corporation merged with J.P. Morgan & Co.

The J.P. Morgan brand, widely known as Morgan, is used by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, the investment banking, private wealth management, private banking, and treasury & securities services divisions. Fiduciary sector within private wealth management and private banking is supported by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.—the actual trustee. The Chase is usually the brand used for credit card services in north America, commercial banking and the bank's retail banking activities in the U.S.. The J.P. Morgan brand is mostly used in Investment Banking. The corporate is headquartered in Manhattan, New York City, New York, U.S.; and the retail and commercial bank deploys its headquarter in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.


JPMorgan Chase, with its current organization, is the outcome of the combination of several large U.S. banking companies since 1996, majorly including Chase Manhattan Bank, J.P. Morgan & Co., etc. Its predecessors include prime banking firms among which are Chemical Bank, First Chicago Bank, Manufacturers Hanover, Providian Financial, Texas Commerce Bank, National Bank of Detroit and Great Western Bank.

The New York Chemical Manufacturing Company, the founding corporate of JP Morgan Chase, was established in 1823, it was a maker of various chemical products. In 1824, the company made amendments into its charter to start involving banking businesses and created the Chemical Bank of New York, the predecessor of later JP Morgan Chase. After 1851, the banking route of the bank was deviated from its parent who was doing chemical manufacturing, and grew organically into more of the financial activities. Through a successive series of mergers, in the 1980s and early 1990s, Chemical Bank of New York was recognized as one of the leaders in the financing of buyout transactions. By the late 1980s, Chemical had developed solid and sound in its financing buyout transactions, built a financial advisory businesses, and syndicated leveraged finance sector. By that time, Chemical Bank of New York made it fame for being the most influential bank in the United States in terms of both assets and deposit market share.

In 1996, Chemical Bank made its monumental move by acquiring Chase Manhattan. Although Chemical was nominally the buyer, it still kept the well-known Chase name for a better economic concern. To this day, JPMorgan Chase still archives Chemical's pre-1996 stock price history, and retains Chemical's former headquarters at 270 Park Avenue.

Chase Manhattan Bank

The Chase Manhattan Bank was founded in 1955, when the Bank of the Manhattan Company purchased Chase National Bank, the company's most ancient predecessor institution.

Attacked by the real estate debacle in the early 1990s, it was purchased by Chemical Bank in 1996. Before the merger with J.P. Morgan & Co., the newly founded Chase expanded the asset management and investment groups through more of the acquisitions.

Aspire to be the best

The ambition for the best demonstrates the company’s ability to grow both organically, with the launching of new products, market-share gains, and dimensionally, by acquisition. Furthermore, the company’s footprint of development has proved that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Each business unit accommodates and complements the others, supplying substantial competitive advantages such as distribution channels, with which treasury and securities services are tailored for wholesale clients, and credit cards and mortgages designed for retail customers, and great international brand names.

J.P. Morgan has promised to act in the customer’s best interest, not once in a while, but consistently. This means outstanding quality of products, services and being helpful, courteous and keen and efficient to follow up. The whole team needs to be acutely aware of the competitive landscape and spontaneous to act. The field, where the employees are the closest associates to the customer, should improve and refine this process, and make ample resources available, and authority ready, to be the best one to serve customers -- the strength resides in the field. The company aspires to exceed customers’ greatest expectations and consistently make it easier and more willing for them to do business with it. It’s not an idea of spending hundreds of millions of dollars on failed initiatives. It does mean, however, that some calculated risks will be taken, with the precaution for the failure. For this end, it requires the building of forward-looking ideas into every decision, every analysis and every new product package.

Execute superbly

Financial discipline – including solid accounting standards, transparent public relation and robust management information systems – leads to class-quality earnings that are recurring and foreseeable in nature; produces high returns on capital; gains good margins; and generates reasonable and controllable risk related to the capital deployed.

Financial discipline must be parallel with a superior – far beyond average – risk management. It’s the company’s strategy to properly manage risk, so as to gain a good return through iterative financial business cycle, not just during the good times.

Relentless efforts have been given on integrating and advancing technology, and on aggressively consolidating, and standardizing our operations, all of which help to facilitate decision-making and establish proper authority to the field. The belief that technology and efficient operations will be critical in the financial services business is profoundly rooted in very breath of business operation, and is embraced and integrated into every detail of corporate activity.

Good internal governance is essential to effective management. It penetrates and ties all the businesses worldwide with a set of commonly and unanimously acknowledged rules, oversight activities and expectations. These help safeguard J.P. Morgan’s reputation, which it believes is one of its most important assets, and align the company’s performance with the best interests of the shareholders.

Build a great and winning culture

In business, as in every other circumstance, ethics is not an accidental topic. It has to be cultivated and affirmed throughout the whole life cycle of business operation of an organization. Maintaining the highest threshold of integrity asks for honesty and conscience for serving our customers, fellow employees, shareholders and all the other partners.

Great managers from J.P. Morgan are driven by and for superb performance. They build and consolidate teamwork within and across business lines, act quickly on debatable issues, tenaciously strive to improve performance, demonstrate a passion to win with and evolve with their people.

The company endeavors to build a culture based on knowledge, truth, a passion to win, constructive debate, and the courage to admit and correct mistakes. All the members are learning to be brutally honest with themselves. Their responsibility is to create a company that encourages and protects this kind of constructive ethical and cultural exchange. Then, with the courage and fortitude to take action and do the right thing, however difficult, leadership is a privilege and an honor to assume, and carries the responsibility to be a role model in the business arena.

A successful company, as J.P. Morgan strives to be, provides people with competitive edge for benefits, the opportunity for better earning as the company grows and a rewarding career path.
