France

J.P. Morgan has a long-standing reputation and commitment to the French market as the oldest U.S. bank in France. The firm is recognized as a leading player in each of the markets in which it operates, and it works closely with the French government and financial authorities. J.P. Morgan offers French clients the latest investment banking, credit and rates markets, equity brokerage, private banking, investment management and treasury and securities services products.

The firm's roots in France extend back to 1868, when it became the first foreign bank established in the country. In 1870, Junius Morgan granted a loan of 250 million gold francs to French statesman Leon Gambetta after the Battle of Sedan during the Franco-German War, which helped the French finance their war debt and the French economy to recover. In 1916, the firm purchased the building at 14 Place Vendôme, which still serves as the firm's headquarters in France.
