J.P. Morgan has revealed its plans to expand its payments and corporate banking services in the Abu Dhabi Global Market.


The Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) has granted in-principle approval to J.P. Morgan Middle East Limited in the ADGM, allowing the firm to upgrade its licence to Category One. This development permits J.P. Morgan to extend its service offerings, encompassing deposit-taking and payment processing for wholesale banking clients. 

Officials from J.P. Morgan Abu Dhabi highlighted the significance of this move, emphasising the institution's commitment to enhancing its longstanding presence in the UAE. The co-head of EMEA Payments and Commerce Solutions at J.P. Morgan Payments outlined the intention to introduce cutting-edge payments platforms to ADGM, facilitating clients in building efficient in-house banks and optimising treasury operations. 

Regarding these new developments, representatives from ADGM expressed confidence in the dynamic ecosystem and progressive regulations of ADGM, anticipating positive contributions from J.P. Morgan to Abu Dhabi's financial landscape. J.P. Morgan's expanded presence aligns with ADGM's appeal to leading international financial institutions, reinforcing its strategic significance in global finance. 

J.P. Morgan's existing product offerings in Abu Dhabi include Corporate Banking, Securities Services, and Payments, encompassing Treasury Services and Trade. The establishment of J.P. Morgan Middle East Limited in ADGM in 2021 builds upon the firm's presence in the Emirate for over a decade. 

J.P. Morgan Payments, an important entity in the global financial landscape, brings treasury services and working capital solutions to optimise client liquidity and facilitate efficient fund movements worldwide.

Other developments from J.P. Morgan

In October 2023, J.P. Morgan Payments entered a partnership with the identity platform Trulioo to enhance global identity verification services.

As part of this collaboration, J.P. Morgan Payments has opted for Trulioo's global identity platform to help clients mitigate fraudulent activities and other financial crimes. The agreement enabled J.P. Morgan Payments to utilise Trulioo's services for global person and business verification, contributing to a simplified payment experience on a global scale. 

Officials highlighted that J.P. Morgan Payments selected Trulioo's platform based on its personally identifiable data sources, match rates, and global reach. By integrating Trulioo's solutions, J.P. Morgan Payments aimed to offer clients additional layers of protection against fraud, both during and after the onboarding process. 

J.P. Morgan's Trust and Safety solutions, incorporating Trulioo's capabilities, gained the ability to improve account validation and strengthen defenses throughout the end-to-end payment process. This initiative further aimed to protect clients from the increasing threats of fraud, improper payments, and cybercrimes prevalent in today's payment landscape.
