Since our inception over 200 years ago, we've evolved to offer the whole spectrum of global banking and financial services, and in many cases, we've helped define them. It is the combination of character, product strength and intellectual capital that sets us apart as an industry leader. We invented the concept of relationship banking back in the nineteenth century, and we are still doing “first-class business in a first-class way.” Today, we work together across our businesses and around the globe to meet the complex financial needs of corporations, governments, private firms, financial institutions, non-profit organizations and individuals. J.P. Morgan employs more than 70,000 people globally, and the firm has assets of $2.2 trillion. We have offices in more than 50 countries and clients in more than 100 countries around the world — and as a testament to our global platform and leadership, lead the industry in most markets in which we operate. Founded in 1799 in the United States, J.P. Morgan is truly a global organization. Our roots in Europe date back to 1838, and we've been in Asia since 1872.
You could begin your career in Global Investment Management in any one of a number of functions. Equities, Global Multi Asset Group, Global Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities or Global Real Assets offer the opportunity to join one of our product groups, while Finance and Operations give you the experience of working within one of our support functions. We also recruit graduates into our Client Groups providing you with an opportunity to be involved with the creation, marketing and distribution of J.P. Morgan Asset Management's investment products. We'll help you find a role that fits your interests, skills and ambitions, but you should spend some time understanding the differences between them. Wherever you start, you'll get to work alongside some of the most dynamic professionals in the business and explore an exciting range of activities. Find out about the typical role an analyst can expect in our Asset Management product areas, client groups and support groups. There's a lot to learn, but also a huge opportunity for the right kind of person to make a big impact.
