About J.P. Morgan in the United Kingdom
J.P. Morgan’s leadership in the United Kingdom extends back to the middle of the nineteenth century. J. Pierpont Morgan’s father, Junius, was in the merchant banking business in London from 1854 until his death in 1890. In 1873, the Scottish American Investment Trust, a predecessor firm (Robert Fleming & Co. was sold to Chase Manhattan in 2000) was formed. In 1887, Jarvis-Conklin Mortgage Trust Company opened in London and through a series of mergers and reorganizations, this firm became part of the Chase Manhattan Bank.
Today, the firm has offices in London, Bournemouth, Glasgow and Edinburgh — with London serving as the headquarters of the EMEA region. The Bournemouth campus is the largest private sector employer in Dorset, offering technology and operational processing. The European Technology Center, based in Glasgow, is one of the largest technology employers in Scotland, with Edinburgh as the center for the Investor Services business.
