J.P. Morgan in Saudi Arabia

Local expertise. Global resources. Our commitment to Saudi Arabia.

We are the only U.S.-headquartered financial institution with two operating licenses in Saudi Arabia, providing access to a comprehensive range of products and global banking capabilities for clients in the country.  We are regulated by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority and the Capital Market Authority.

 

We have a committed and long-standing history of serving clients in the Middle East dating back to the 1930s when a predecessor firm helped U.S.-based oil companies strengthen their operations in Saudi Arabia. We opened our first branch in Beirut, Lebanon in 1955 and 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 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.

 

Islamic Banking


J.P. Morgan is dedicated to developing products and services that observe and respect Sharia-compliant ethical principles. Our main goal is to provide Islamic banking solutions to clients with increasingly sophisticated financing needs.
 

By leveraging the firm's unique structuring platform, J.P. Morgan has developed a range of Sharia-compliant products to address the needs of this growing market. Our Sharia-compliant product offering today spans debt and equity capital markets, investor products, cash management and Murabaha liquidity products, risk management and asset management funds.

 

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 has a committed and long-standing history of serving clients in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region dating back to the 1930s when our predecessor firm, Morgan Guaranty Trust Company, helped U.S.-based oil companies strengthen their operations in Saudi Arabia.
