We are thrilled that, through our technology, we can help JP Morgan provide its users with a market-leading customer experience across Europe, USA, Asia and other global markets.”

Ed Lopez, Calastone’s Chief Revenue Officer, comments;

“Traditional models remain under immense pressure and have very quickly been seen to come up short. The key to managing this new post-COVID world, and to staying attractive in it, sits in embracing new, smart technologies – and making the switch from manual to automated. To see JP Morgan share in our vision and champion innovation is fantastic – and it gives us even greater confidence of the real potential for how far our Money Markets Services can go long term.”
