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. These entities all played a significant role in the growth of the US and global economies. 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 capitalisation of $243.59 billion.
