J.P. Morgan has always held that a fintech will be successful if it has truly relevant solutions for the industry paired with financing at the right time, so our aim in becoming a major investor in this fund is to see good fintech business models thrive. We bring the scale and reach of our own platform to this partnership, which we think will be invaluable to fintechs looking for connections and growth.
