With a legacy dating back to 1799, we have a history of demonstrating leadership during times of both economic growth and financial instability.
J.P. Morgan's presence in Korea dates back to 1967, when Chase Manhattan Bank became the first foreign bank to enter the market. Since then, it has expanded its business to include brokerage services and investment banking. Today, employees in the Seoul office offer an array of wholesale financial services across corporate and investment banking and asset management through three legal entities; J.P. Morgan Securities (Far East) Limited, Seoul Branch, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Seoul Branch, and JPMorgan Asset Management (Korea) Company Limited. The operations are located in J.P. Morgan Plaza, in the central business district, surrounded by the historic Deoksu Palace, Baejae Park and the Seoul Museum of Art.
J.P. Morgan is a leading foreign house for futures and options. It is one of the top three foreign houses for foreign exchange trading in terms of trading volume, and one of only three foreign investment banks with a Korean government bond primary dealership.
