JPMorgan Confirms New Glasgow Home

18 Sep 2019

JPMorgan Chase & Co. has announced plans to build a new state-of-the-art technology home in Glasgow, coinciding with the firm's 20th anniversary in the city. Scheduled to open in 2022, the 270,000 sq ft, thirteen storey building on Argyle Street, in the heart of Glasgow's IFSD, will have the capacity for up to 2,700 employees.

JPMorgan currently employs around 2,000 people in Glasgow, making it Scotland's largest technology employer.

The new office will feature the highest energy efficiency and CO2 emission performance standards, in line with JPMorgan's commitment to source renewable energy for 100% of its global power needs by 2020. This includes LED lights, responsibly sourced materials, minimised water consumption and over 350 bicycle spaces.

Glasgow is a key part of the global technology network servicing the full range of JPMorgan Chase's operations, providing vital software development facilities to the firm and its clients.

Stephen Flaherty, Managing Director of J.P Morgan's Glasgow Technology Centre said: "Our new home in Glasgow and our continued investment in jobs, training and development reflects the huge amount of talent available in the city. Our commitment to Glasgow goes deeper still through the work we do with local schools and universities."
