Germany, Austria & Switzerland
J.P. Morgan's leadership in Germany, Austria and Switzerland extends across the Investment Bank, Treasury Services, Investor Services and Asset Management.
The firm's history in the region dates back to 1928, when Chase National Bank opened a representative office in Berlin. In 1947, Chase National Bank opened a branch in Frankfurt — the first foreign bank after World War II. In 1960, the firm obtained an unrestricted license to offer all the banking services of a universal bank throughout the Federal Republic of Germany.
In 1964 Chase Manhattan opened a representative office in Geneva, where The Chase Manhattan Bank (Switzerland) was formed, and an additional office was later opened in Zurich. In 1966, Chase Manhattan acquired a controlling interest in a Viennese bank and three years later purchased the remaining interest in it.
