More than one third of the firm’s employees in Singapore will be based at the new workplace, which boasts next-generation facilities and sustainable infrastructure.
J.P. Morgan today announced the official opening of its new city office at CapitaSpring, the integrated development located in the center of Singapore’s financial district.
Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, officiated the launch ceremony alongside the guest-of-honor, Singapore Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for Social Policies, and Chairman of the Monetary Authority of Singapore Tharman Shanmugaratnam, and J.P. Morgan’s Asia Pacific CEO Filippo Gori.
The new office, which occupies 155,000 square feet across seven floors, features advanced facilities such as real-time air quality sensors and automated sun screens, as well as enhanced amenities including a contemporary client center, high-tech collaborative spaces, mini markets and wellness areas equipped with ergonomic resting pods. In line with J.P. Morgan’s commitment to maintaining carbon neutral operations, the building is a recipient of the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Award – one of the highest sustainability accolades that can be achieved in Singapore.
Aside from CapitaSpring, J.P. Morgan Singapore also operates from its Singapore Corporate Center, a global technology hub located in Changi.
