Bournemouth, United Kingdom, May 1, 2014– J.P. Morgan announced today that the 
firm will invest $48 million (£28.6 million) to enhance its Bournemouth 
Technology & Operations Centre, the firm’s operational hub in Europe employing 
more than 4,000 people. 
The investment will transform the infrastructure in the Bournemouth Centre, 
creating a more vibrant and collaborative workspace.  Employees will have 
access  to more state-of-the-art communications technology and office 
equipment, enabling better interaction with their colleagues in Europe, the 
United States and Asia.  The building’s onsite restaurant and common spaces 
will be revitalised, and facilities will be  upgraded for employees who cycle 
to work. The infrastructure projects will be completed throughout the next 
three years.   
“Bournemouth offers access to high quality talent and to facilities that can 
support our business, not just in London, but around the world,” said Jamie  
Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase.  “We are proud to be an active 
member of the Bournemouth community and to be the largest private sector 
employer in Dorset.” 
J.P. Morgan has had offices in Bournemouth for 28 years, supporting client 
activities in 40 countries around the globe.  The new funding builds on the 
firm’s  previous $18 million (£10.7 million) investment completed in 2011 to 
upgrade infrastructure at the site.
“Our employees in Bournemouth are an integral part of the global operations of 
our firm, and our commitment to continually investing in  their work is 
unquestionable,” said Simon Cooper, J.P. Morgan Chief Administrative Office 
Bournemouth Site Leader.  “This commitment is something that those of us who 
live and work here see every day.”
J.P. Morgan has a strong history of community engagement in Bournemouth.  The 
firm’s “Supporting our Community” programme provides assistance to 130 local  
voluntary organisations, charities and schools. Recent strategic philanthropic 
investments include a £1.1 million investment in education through the “Achieve
