The Corporate & Investment Bank supports our clients around the world providing strategic advice, raising capital and managing risk.

Who we are
The Blockchain Center of Excellence (BCOE) leads and coordinates all blockchain and distributed ledger-related activities within the Corporate and Investment Bank, which have grown to include a dedicated technology team, key partnerships with leading blockchain technology providers, and active participation in industry forums. Additionally, the BCOE oversees both selection and execution of internal and external use cases to test and deploy distributed ledger technology. The BCOE represents our commitment to exploring and deploying distributed ledger technology, and since its foundation we have positioned J.P. Morgan as a leader in this field.

As we scale our efforts and activities in this area, the BCOE's mandate has grown to include:
- Developing and executing a comprehensive distributed ledger technology strategy for the Corporate and Investment Bank
- Developing the in-house view on potential applications and impact of distributed ledger technology across all of our businesses
- Partnering with our businesses and their leadership teams to identify and develop high-potential use cases and technology applications, and oversee the development and execution of these use cases
- Building an industry-leading, enterprise-ready distributed ledger technology stack working with highly-talented engineers
- Build strategic relationships with distributed ledger technology providers and maintain existing strategic relationships
- Lead the industry's adoption of this technology by targeted and active participation in key industry forums (e.g., Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, Hyperledger Project), and building relationships with other industry participants (e.g., Dealers, Buy-Side firms, CCPs)
- Work with industry regulators and organizations to ensure regulatory and legal considerations are considered and addressed when driving industry adoption.

  • You are intellectually curious, see things differently, and challenge the status quo. Innovation & disruption are the filters through which you see the world.
  • You are a strategic thinker, able to conceptualize the bigger picture and connect the dots across business areas to ensure we develop holistic solutions.

No matter your background, you are eager to roll up your sleeves and build things. In the end, what matters to us is that when something needs to get done, people usually come to you.
