JPMorgan said to add to Paris headcount post Brexit

JPMorgan Chase

JPMorgan Chase may increase headcount in Paris by about 60 people as part of its planning for Brexit, according to a person briefed on the discussions.

Bloomberg News reports that that move would hinge on the outcome of negotiations between the U.K. and European Union and would be after any transition period agreed to by the two sides, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations are private.

The additions would mostly be client-facing employees, with some corporate personnel, the person said.

The Financial Times reported JPMorgan’s plan to bolster staffing in France earlier Thursday.
