JPMorgan Chase, in its current form, has its roots in more than 1,200 predecessor banks, including major heritage firms JP Morgan, Chase Manhattan, Chemical Bank, Manufacturers Hanover, Bank One, First Chicago, and National Bank of Detroit.

The earliest of the Company’s predecessor companies was The Bank of the Manhattan Company, which was established in 1799 by Aaron Burr as only the second commercial bank in the US.

JPMorgan Chase is built upon numerous mergers and acquisitions. Arguably, the most significant of these was the 2000 merger between JP Morgan and Company and The Chase Manhattan Corporation, which effectively combined four of the largest and oldest banking institutions in New York City – JP Morgan, Chase Bank, Chemical Bank, and Manufacturers Hanover – to form JP Morgan Chase and Company.

JPMorgan is now one of the largest banking institutions in the world. It is ranked 23rd in the Fortune 500 list and 5th in the Forbes 2000 list. The Company trades its shares on the New York Stock Exchange and has a current market capitalization of $243.59 billion.

JPMorgan - Challenges Faced

“We do not worry about the stock price in the short run,” Dimon (CEO) said. “If you continue to build a great company, the stock price will take care of itself.”

Economic risks on the horizon - The excessive disruption in the financial markets at the end of 2018 was “a harbinger of things to come,” as investor sentiment remained precarious.

Because of divisive politics, America was unable to keep pace in a new world - The federal government was becoming less relevant to what is going on in people’s lives, Dimon said. As a result, people lost faith in their politicians’ ability to deliver on their promises and meet societal needs.

American leadership and engagement on the world stage is “indispensable” - Dimon said one of the biggest uncertainties in the world is what role America is currently playing. He said that while there are many problems with international organizations, such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations (UN), the world is better off with these institutions, and the U.S. should engage and exercise its power and influence “cautiously and judiciously.

Regulation isn’t all bad, but too much of it isn’t good - Dimon said current “excessive” regulation has reduced growth and business formation for the company, without making the economy safer or better.

“The ease of starting a business in the United States has worsened, and both small business formation and employment growth have dropped to the lowest rates in 30 years,” Dimon wrote.

JPMorgan Chase is “all in” on the cloud and AI, but not on stock buybacks - Dimon acknowledged that he was “partially responsible” for the bank being slow to adopt the cloud, because his early thinking was that it was just another term for outsourcing. He also said the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning is “real,” and are “rapidly being deployed” across virtually every aspect of the bank’s business. Since that makes some employees redundant, the bank is looking to retrain and deploy those employees for other roles inside and outside the company.

JPMorgan - Future Plans

17,000 Job Cuts- Even the country's largest bank needs to cut back on employees. Executives said JPMorgan would eliminate about 17,000 positions over the next two years, including about 4,000 through attrition this year in its consumer bank.

13,000 to 15,000 Mortgage Cuts- Most of JPMorgan Chase's job cuts will come through lay-offs and attrition in its mortgage operations over the next two years, as the industry moves past the worst of the foreclosure crisis and has less need for servicing employees.

100 New Branches- Even as it cuts some branches, JPMorgan Chase is expanding. The bank plans to add about 100 branches to its total over each of the next two years.

500,000 'Digital' Customers- A growing number of JPMorgan Chase customers are opting for mobile and online technology over branch visits. About 500,000 bank customers per month are going digital, executives said.

New Partnership- JPMorgan used the day to announce a new partnership with Visa. Executives said the deal will allow the bank to negotiate directly with merchants over how they process Chase credit and debit cards.
