J.P. Morgan Wealth Management announced today plans to hire more than 100 financial advisors in the Phoenix metro area by 2022, highlighting the bank’s commitment to growth in Arizona.
“We are looking for individuals who are passionate about building relationships with clients while helping them achieve their goals through sound financial planning and who can help us foster a culture of excellence, diversity and inclusion.”
The new employees will work in J.P. Morgan’s growing U.S. wealth management business, with a focus on offering professional financial advice for clients who prefer to engage via video and phone. The National Branch complements J.P. Morgan’s U.S. Wealth Management business offering, which currently includes advisors working in branches and offices in Arizona and across the U.S. and digital self-directed online platforms. JPMorgan Chase & Co. has over 200 branches in Arizona, and over 150 branches are in the metro Phoenix area.
“National Branch adds to the exceptional service we offer from branches and offices and gives us the capacity to truly serve our clients how, where and when they want,” said Boaz Lahovitsky, Head of National Branch at J.P. Morgan Wealth Management. “The Phoenix metro area will play a crucial role in the expansion of our remote advice offering and shows J.P. Morgan’s continued commitment to the city.”
Tyler Craig, Business Execution Director for National Branch, will oversee the expansion in Arizona. He has nearly 20 years of experience working in the wealth management industry in Phoenix and is a graduate of Arizona State University.
“Phoenix’s thriving job market, high quality of life and diverse talent pool are a natural match to J.P. Morgan’s strong values, tradition and culture,” said Craig. “We are looking for individuals who are passionate about building relationships with clients while helping them achieve their goals through sound financial planning and who can help us foster a culture of excellence, diversity and inclusion.”
