About us

We are committed to our business in Egypt. From Cairo, we maintain key relationships with governments, financial institutions and corporations and act as a liaison with the J.P.Morgan offices abroad.

We have a committed and long-standing history of serving clients in the Middle East for over 100 years. Today, we operate across offices in Abu Dhabi, Beirut, Cairo, Doha, Dubai, Manama and Riyadh.

Globally, through the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, we make philanthropic investments in cities where we have major operations, assisting those at a disadvantage by helping them build better lives for themselves, their families and their communities. Across EMEA, the firm focuses its investment and attention on three pillars: Economic Development, Financial Empowerment and Workforce Readiness.

J.P. Morgan is a global leader in financial services, offering solutions to the world's most important corporations, governments and institutions in more than 100 countries. As announced in 2020, JPMorgan Chase will deploy $2 billion in philanthropic capital around the world by 2025. We also lead volunteer service activities for employees in local communities by utilizing our many resources, including those that stem from access to capital, economies of scale, global reach and expertise.
