Key financial data

JPMorgan Chase logo, prior to the 2008 rebranding JPMorgan Chase, as it exists since 2008, is the result of the combination of several large U.S. banking companies over the last decade including Chase Manhattan Bank, J.P. Morgan & Co., Bank One, Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual. Going back further, its predecessors include major banking firms among which are Chemical Bank, Manufacturers Hanover, First Chicago Bank, National Bank of Detroit, Texas Commerce Bank, Providian Financial and Great Western Bank.

the largest bank in the United States (either in terms of assets or deposit market share). In 1996, Chemical acquired the Chase Manhattan Corporation taking the more prominent Chase name. In 2000, the combined company acquired J.P. Morgan & Co. and combined the two names to form what is today JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPMorgan Chase retains Chemical Bank’s headquarters at 277 Park Avenue and stock price history.

Chase Manhattan Bank

Logo used by Chase prior to rebranding and its merger with J.P. Morgan & Co. Created by Chermayeff & Geismar. The Chase Manhattan Bank was formed upon the 1931 purchase of Chase National Bank (established in 1877) by the Bank of the Manhattan Company (established in 1799), the company’s oldest predecessor institution. The Bank of the Manhattan Company was the creation of Aaron Burr, who transformed The Manhattan Company from a water carrier into a bank. Led by David Rockefeller during the 1970s and the 1980s, Chase Manhattan emerged as one of the largest and most prestigious banking concerns, with leadership positions in syndicated lending, treasury and securities services, credit cards, mortgages, and retail financial services. Weakened by the real estate collapse in the early 1990s, it was acquired by Chemical Bank in 1996 but retained the Chase name. Prior to its merger with J.P. Morgan & Co., Chase acquired San Francisco-based Hambrecht & Quist in 1999 for $1.35 billion. According to page 114 of An Empire of Wealth by John Steele Gordon, the origin of this strand of JPMorgan Chase’s history runs as follows:

Chemical Banking Corporation

Chemical Bank Logo used prior to its merger with Chase Manhattan Bank The New York Chemical Manufacturing Company was founded in 1823 as a maker of various chemicals. In 1824, the company amended its charter to perform banking activities and created the Chemical Bank of New York. After 1851, the bank was separated from its parent and grew organically and through a series of mergers, most notably with Corn Exchange Bank in 1954, Texas Commerce Bank (a large bank in Texas) in 1986, and Manufacturer’s Hanover Trust Company in 1991 (the first major bank merger "among equals"). At many points throughout this history, Chemical Bank was

“At the turn of the nineteenth century, obtaining a bank charter required an act of the state legislature. This of course injected a powerful element of politics into the process and invited what today would be called corruption but then was regarded as business as usual. Hamilton’s political enemy—and eventual murderer—Aaron Burr was able to create a bank by sneaking a clause into a charter for a company, called the Manhattan Company, to provide clean water to New York City. The innocuous-looking clause allowed the company to invest surplus capital in any lawful enterprise. Within six months of the company’s creation, and long before it had laid a single section of water pipe, the company opened a bank, the Bank of the Manhattan Company. Still in existence, it is today J.P.Morgan Chase, the second largest bank in the United States.”

The warning read: "Remember we will not tolerate any longer. Free the political prisoners or it will be sure death for all of you. American Anarchists Fighters." While theories abound about who was behind the Wall Street bombing and why they did it, after twenty years of investigation the FBI rendered the file inactive in 1940 without ever finding the perpetrators. In August 1914, Henry P. Davison, a Morgan partner, traveled to the UK and made a deal with the Bank of England to make J.P. Morgan & Co. the monopoly underwriter of war bonds for UK and France. The Bank of England became a "fiscal agent" of J.P. Morgan & Co. and vice versa. The company also invested in the suppliers of war equipment to Britain and France. Thus, the company profited from the financing and purchasing activities of the two European governments. In the 1930s, all J.P. Morgan & Co. along with all integrated banking businesses in the United States, was required by the provisions of the Glass-Steagall Act to separate its investment banking from its commercial banking operations. J.P. Morgan & Co. chose to operate as a commercial bank, because at the time commercial lending was perceived to be more profitable and prestigious business in the post depression era. Additionally, many within J.P. Morgan believed that a change in the climate would allow the company to resume its securities businesses but it would be

J.P. Morgan & Company

J.P. Morgan & Co. logo before its merger with Chase Manhattan Bank in 2000 The heritage of the House of Morgan traces its roots back to the partnership of Drexel, Morgan & Co. which in 1895, was renamed J.P. Morgan & Co. (see also: J. Pierpont Morgan). Arguably the most influential financial institutions of its era, J.P. Morgan & Co. financed the formation of the United States Steel Corporation, which took over the business of Andrew Carnegie and others and was the world’s first billion-dollar corporation. In 1895, J.P. Morgan & Co. supplied the United States government with $62 million in gold to float a bond issue and restore the treasury surplus of $100 million. In 1892, the company began to finance the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad and led it through a series of acquisitions that made it the dominant railroad transporter in New England. Built in 1914, 23 Wall Street was known as the "House of Morgan," and for decades the bank’s headquarters was the most important address in American finance. At noon, on September 16, 1920, a terrorist bomb exploded in front of the bank, injuring 400 and killing 38. Shortly before the bomb

nearly impossible to reconstitute the bank if it were disassembled. In 1935, after being barred from securities business for over a year, the heads of J.P. Morgan made the decision to spinoff its investment banking operations. Led by J.P. Morgan partners, Henry S. Morgan (son of Jack Morgan and grandson of J. Pierpont Morgan) and Harold Stanley, Morgan Stanley was founded on September 16, 1935 with $6.6 million of nonvoting preferred stock from J.P. Morgan partners. In order to bolster its position, in 1959, J.P. Morgan merged with the Guaranty Trust Company of New York to form the Morgan Guaranty Trust Company. The bank would continue to operate as Morgan Guaranty through the 1980s before beginning to migrate back toward the use of the J.P. Morgan brand. In 1984, the group finally purchased the Purdue National Corporation of Lafayette Indiana, uniting a history between the two figures of Salmon Portland Chase and John Purdue. In 1988, the company once again began operating exclusively as J.P. Morgan & Co.

technology mishmash inherited from the many mergers prior to this one. Mr. Dimon effected more than sufficient changes to make Bank One Corporation a viable merger partner for JPMorgan Chase. Bank One Corporation traced its roots to First Bancgroup of Ohio, founded as a holding company for City National Bank of Columbus, Ohio and several other banks in that state, all of which were renamed "Bank One" when the holding company was renamed Bank One Corporation. With the beginning of interstate banking they spread into other states, always renaming acquired banks "Bank One", though for a long time they resisted combining them into one bank. After the NBD merger, adverse financial results led to the departure of CIO John B. McCoy, whose father and grandfather had headed Banc One and predecessors. Jamie Dimon, a former key executive of Citigroup, was brought in to head the company. JPMorgan Chase completed the acquisition of Bank One in 2004.

Bear Stearns

Bank One logo used prior to its merger with JPMorgan Chase In 2004, JPMorgan Chase merged with Bank One Corp., bringing on board current chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon as president and COO and designating him as CEO William B. Harrison, Jr.’s successor. Dimon’s pay was pegged at 90% of Harrison’s. Dimon quickly made his influence felt by embarking on a cost-cutting strategy and replaced former JPMorgan Chase executives in key positions with Bank One executives—many of whom were with Dimon at Citigroup. Dimon became CEO in January 2006 and Chairman in December 2006. Bank One Corporation was formed upon the 1998 merger between Banc One of Ohio and First Chicago NBD. These two large banking companies had themselves been created through the merger of many banks. This merger was largely considered a failure until Jamie Dimon—recently ousted as President of Citigroup—took over and reformed the new firm’s practices—especially its disastrous

Bear Stearns logo At the end of 2007, Bear Stearns & Co. Inc. was the fifth largest investment bank in the United States but its market capitalization had deteriorated through the second half of 2007. On Friday, March 14, 2008 Bear Stearns lost 47% of its equity market value to close at $30.00 per share as rumors emerged that clients were withdrawing capital from the bank. Over the following weekend it emerged that Bear Stearns might prove insolvent and on or around March 15, 2008 the Federal Reserve engineered a deal to prevent a wider systemic crisis from the collapse of Bear Stearns. On March 16, 2008, after a weekend of intense negotiations between JPMorgan, Bear, and the federal government, JPMorgan Chase announced that it had plans to acquire Bear Stearns in a stock swap worth $2.00 per

share or $240 million pending shareholder approval scheduled within 90 days. In the interim, JPMorgan Chase agreed to guarantee all Bear Stearns trades and business process flows.[9] Two days later, on March 18, 2008, JPMorgan Chase formally announced the acquisition of Bear Stearns for $236 million. The stock swap agreement was signed in the late-night hours of March 18, 2008, with JPMorgan agreeing to exchange 0.05473 of each of its shares upon closure of the merger for one Bear share, valuing the Bear shares at $2 each. [10] On March 24, 2008, after considerable public discontent by Bear Stearns shareholders over the low acquisition price threatened the deal’s closure, a revised offer was announced at approximately $10 per share. Under the revised terms, JPMorgan also immediately acquired a 39.5% stake in Bear Stearns (using newly issued shares) at the new offer price and gained a commitment from the board (representing another 10% of the share capital) that its members would vote in favour of the new deal. With sufficient committments thus in hand to ensure a successful shareholder vote, the merger was completed on June 2, 2008.

accounts of Providian Financial, a credit card issuer WaMu acquired in 2005. The company announced plans to complete the rebranding of Washington Mutual branches to Chase by late 2009. Currently, shareholders are fighting what they consider the illegal seizure of Washington Mutual through such websites as,, and, claiming that the OTS acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner and seized the bank for political reasons or for the benefit of JPMorgan Chase, which acquired a large network of branches at what they claim to be an unfairly low price. Shareholders claim that as of the date of the takeover, the bank had enough liquidity to meet all its obligations and was in compliance with the business plan negotiated with the OTS 2 weeks earlier and that the holding company’s board and management was kept completely in the dark about the government’s negotiations with Chase, hampering the bank’s ability to sell itself on its own. Chief executive Alan H. Fishman was flying from New York to Seattle on the day the bank was closed, and eventually received a $7.5 million sign-on bonus and cash severance of $11.6 million after being CEO for 17 days.

Washington Mutual

Collegiate Funding Services
In 2006, JPMorgan Chase purchased Collegiate Funding Services, a portfolio company of private equity firm Lightyear Capital, for $663 million. CFS was used as the foundation for the Chase Student Loans, previously known as Chase Education Finance.[13]

Washington Mutual logo On September 25, 2008; JPMorgan Chase bought most of the banking operations of Washington Mutual from the receivership of the FDIC. That night, the Office of Thrift Supervision had seized Washington Mutual Bank and placed it into receivership in by far the largest bank failure in American history. The FDIC sold the bank’s assets, secured debt obligations and deposits to JPMorgan Chase & Co for $1.836 billion, which reopened the bank the following day. As a result of the takeover, Washington Mutual shareholders lost all their equity.[11] JPMorgan Chase raised $10 billion in a stock sale to cover writedowns and losses after taking on deposits and branches of Washington Mutual.[12] Through the acquisition, JPMorgan Chase now owns the former

Other recent acquisitions
On April 7, 2006, JPMorgan Chase announced it would be swapping its corporate trust unit for The Bank of New York Co.’s retail and small business banking network. The swap valued The Bank of New York business at $3.1 billion and JPMorgan’s trust unit at $2.8 billion and gives Chase access to 338 additional branches and 700,000 new customers in the New York, New Jersey, and Indiana operations On March 26, 2008, JPMorgan acquired the UK-based carbon offsetting company ClimateCare.

responsible for poor investment decisions. The suits seek to recover the losses suffered by individual and company clients. Groups claiming JP Morgan Chase stock fraud resulted in loss of investments are the University of California and former Enron employees, among others.[21]

Bernard Madoff
On April 23, 2009, Chase was served with a complaint from MLSMK [22] Investment Company, a Palm Beach, Florida partnership that directly deposited $12.8 million into Bernard Madoff’s account between October and early December, 2008. The lawsuit alleges the bank of aiding Madoff’s crime by maintaining his checking accounts and trading with his brokerage firm long after the bank realized that he was running a vast fraud. In September, 2008, Morgan Chase began withdrawing $250 million of its own money from the Sentry funds operated by the Fairfield Greenwich Group, a Madoff feeder fund. If the bank had terminated Madoff’s accounts then, the plaintiffs would not have lost their money. [23]

Government subsidies and incentives
BBC News reported that JPMorgan Chase struck a deal to receive large incentives and subsidies from the City of New York and the State of New York to ensure that the company does not follow through on threats to leave downtown New York for Connecticut.[24] While there are other companies that have received similar incentives to stay in New York’s Downtown after 9/11, BBC News reports that this is the largest deal of its kind to date. A quote from the BBC article: New York City officials have already paid Goldman Sachs $650m (£330m) to build new offices in Battery Park City. [...] But the paper says that JP Morgan Chase will receive an even better deal, with tax breaks, discounted electric power and rent subsidies worth $100m from city and state authorities. And it says that rent subsidies will amount to $50m per year for 15 years, or $750m. JP Morgan Chase is a huge, and very profitable company.

Legal proceedings
J. P. Morgan Chase, which helped underwrite $15.4 billion of WorldCom’s bonds, agreed in the middle of March 2005 to pay $2 billion; that was 46 percent, or $630 million, more than it would have paid had it accepted an investor offer in May of $1.37 billion. J. P. Morgan was the last big lender to settle. Its payment is the second largest in the case, exceeded only by the $2.6 billion accord reached in Q4 2004 by Citigroup ([1]). In March 2005, 16 of WorldCom’s 17 former underwriters reached settlements with the investors ([2]).

We’ve got plenty of capital. To policymakers, I say where were they? … They approved all these banks. Now they’re beating up on everyone, saying look at all these mistakes, and we’re going to come and fix it. [29][30] —Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan chief executive In Feb 2009, JPMorgan Chase moved forward in using their monetary strength to acquire new businesses by advertising the strength of their capital base [29]. Yet to be determined as to whether these funds were provided by TARP and possibly in direct violation of TARP’s main intent; to help troubled assets related to residential mortgages and all obligations as spelled out in TARP, the US Government as of Feb 2009 had yet to move forward in enforcing TARPs’ intent in funding JP Morgan Chase $25 billion[25] In January 2009, JPMorgan Chase announced its intent to change the terms of upwards of a trillion dollars-worth of mortgages in an effort to keep them from foreclosure.[31] Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan chief executive, criticized a proposed law that would allow bankruptcy judges to cut the mortgage rates in existing mortgages for borrowers who would otherwise be forced into default.[31] Despite its announcement in January 2009, JPMorgan Chase had continued to process foreclosures on hundreds of thousands of properties.[25][29][30][32] .

Home Foreclosures Continue in 2009
The US Treasury Department transferred $25 billion of US funds to JPMorgan Chase on Oct 28 via TARP.[25]. This was the fifth largest amount transferred under the United States 2008 bailout bill (a.k.a. TARP) primarily related to USA mortgages.[26]. A main stipulation in TARP was to help troubled assets related to residential mortgages and all obligations as such (see TARP). In October 2008 a New York Times reporter was able to access a telephone employees only conference call with JP Morgan Chase. See Quote Below: Twenty-five billion dollars is obviously going to help the folks who are struggling more than Chase,” he began. What we do think it will help us (JPMorgan Chase) do is perhaps be a little bit more active on the acquisition side or opportunistic side for some banks who are still struggling. And I would not assume that we are done on the acquisition side just because of the Washington Mutual and Bear Stearns mergers. I think there are going to be some great opportunities for us (JPMorgan Chase) to grow in this environment, and I think we have an opportunity to use that $25 billion in that way and obviously depending on whether recession turns into depression or what happens in the future, you know, we have that as a backstop[27]. —Employees only conference call with JP Morgan Chase TARP states "Troubled assets" are defined as "(A) residential or commercial mortgages and any securities, obligations, or other instruments that are based on or related to such mortgages, that in each case was originated or issued on or before March 14, 2008, the purchase of which the Secretary determines promotes financial market stability" [25], But a press release issued by JP Morgan Chase noted on December 23, 2008 showed a diversion from TARP.
