Advancing Cities

Advancing Cities

J.P. Morgan has been serving clients and the local communities in Greater Paris for 150 years. We are proud to be a part of the city’s vibrant economy and recognize that with 1.5 million Greater Paris residents living in neighborhoods with high significant levels of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, we have to do our part in making sure that more people can share in the rewards of the city’s economic growth.

About

J.P. Morgan has been serving clients and the local communities in Greater Paris for 150 years. We are proud to be a part of the city’s vibrant economy and recognize that with 1.5 million Greater Paris residents living in neighborhoods with high significant levels of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, we have to do our part in making sure that more people can share in the rewards of the city’s economic growth.

To expand access to opportunity for residents and entrepreneurs in Seine-Saint-Denis, and other communities struggling with poverty and unemployment, J.P. Morgan is investing $30 million over the next five years in Greater Paris as part of AdvancingCities and using lessons learned from investments in Detroit, Chicago and Washington, D.C. J.P. Morgan will collaborate with local nonprofit, government and business leaders to support small business growth and local workforce development initiatives.
