Over the next few years, JPMorgan Chase is investing in New England with more than 60 new branches, 130 ATMs and hiring more than 350 people, including veterans. More than 80 of these employees will be in Rhode Island.

While Chase is new to the state, JPMorgan Chase is not. We’ve had a presence in the market since 2017, with the Commercial Bank, Private Bank and Real Estate. With the expansion of retail, our commercial and private banking practices are also growing.

Chase will open 12 branches and 20 ATMs in Rhode Island in the next five years.

New branches will include modern design elements and feature open, collaborative spaces with ample room for meetings and “Chase Chats,” a new series of small group sessions focused on financial health.

  • Given the first branch’s close proximity to Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Employees will go on to local campus’ to hold financial health classes.

Over the next five years, the bank will invest $3 billion for home and small-business lending in the New England region. Home loans will include low- and moderate-income communities. Eligible customers may also receive up to $3,000 in homeownership grants.

In addition, through our Small Business Forward initiative, the firm will provide women, minority- and veteran-owned small businesses increases to capital and technical assistance. 

Entry Level employees will be paid no less than $16.50/hour and will receive the firm’s full benefits package, which is valued at an average of $12,000 annually per employee in this pay range. It includes health care coverage and retirement savings, as well.
