Local expertise. Global resources. Our commitment to Ireland.

We trace our roots in Ireland back to 1919, and we are now one of the largest providers of custody and administration services to the country’s funds. We offer clients products and services from our corporate and investment bank, card services and payment and transaction processing.


J.P. Morgan has operated in Europe for nearly 200 years and has a sophisticated local market presence across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Within the region, J.P. Morgan has an unparalleled client base and leadership across the spectrum of financial services products. The regional head office in London is complemented by a strong regional footprint, with offices in all major financial centers.


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 early 2018, JPMorgan Chase will deploy $1.75 billion in philanthropic capital around the world by 2023. 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.


Our Local History

With a legacy dating back to 1799, we have a history of demonstrating leadership during times of both economic growth and financial instability.


J.P. Morgan traces its roots in Ireland back to 1919, when The National Land Bank was established under the direction of Ireland's nascent, independent parliament to help revive land redistribution from landlords to tenant farmers.


In the years following independence, this bank came under the control of the Bank of Ireland and was renamed National City Bank in 1927. In 1968, the Bank of Ireland entered into a joint venture with Chase Manhattan Bank. Chase took full ownership of the legal entity in 1979, acquired Chemical Bank Ireland in 1993, and later changed its name to J.P. Morgan Bank (Ireland) plc.


Bear Stearns Bank Ireland, which was incorporated in 1997, became part of the business in 2008, as a result of the merger and was named J.P. Morgan Bank (Dublin) plc. It is a fully authorized banking institution as prescribed by the Central Bank of Ireland and the Irish Financial Services Regulatory Authority and is fully passported in the European area. It is the only EU passported bank in the non-bank chain of J.P. Morgan and provides the firm with direct access to the European Central Bank repo window. It has also been added to the J.P. Morgan jumbo issuance programs to issue structured securities for distribution outside the United States.
