J.P. Morgan’s Corporate & Investment Bank is a global leader across banking, markets and investor services. The world’s most important corporations, governments and institutions entrust us with their business in more than 100 countries. The Corporate & Investment Bank provides strategic advice, raises capital, manages risk and extends liquidity in markets around the world.
The Global Clearing business rolls up to the Global Equities LOB within the Corporate & Investment Bank and helps clients clear and settle derivative transactions globally across a full suite of products including listed futures, options, FX, rates and credit derivatives. The business is comprised of Futures & Options (F&O), Over the Counter Clearing (OTC Clearing), FX PB and Treasury Liquidity Management. It is at the forefront of significant regulatory reform, including but not limited to: Mandatory clearing of OTC Derivatives, Basel III Agency Clearing rules as well as Basel III Leverage Ratio implementation.
The F&O business is one of the most dynamic market leaders in the futures and options brokerage business. The business has provided Sales, Execution and Clearing services across fixed income, equity, foreign exchange and commodity asset classes since 1979.
