JP Morgan 'to grow its business in the Republic'

By Ronald Quinlan

The boss of international bank JP Morgan has formally confirmed the US investment banking giant's plans to grow its business in Dublin. However, chairman and chief executive Jamie Dimon stopped short of saying how many staff the bank plans to hire there in the wake of Brexit.

In a statement following a meeting yesterday with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in Dublin, Mr Dimon said: "Ireland is at the forefront of training its workforce to keep up with the latest developments in technology and business innovation, and the country has a global, open environment that will keep it economically competitive.

"I met with Prime Minister (sic) Varadkar today to discuss our plans to grow JP Morgan's business over the next several years." The firm recently bought 200 Capital Dock in the city.
