JPMorgan Chase strives to be a catalyst for meaningful, positive and sustainable change in communities across the globe. JPMorgan Chase annually invests more than $300 million to create pathways to opportunity so that individuals have access to the knowledge, skills, resources, and capital they need to secure their futures and compete in the global economy. Our programs seek to address key drivers of economic inequality experienced by vulnerable populations around the globe through four key focus areas: Community Development, Jobs and Skills, Financial Capability, and Small Business. The Firm has also developed innovative Strategic Initiatives such as Women on the Move and Advancing Black Pathways.
The Corporate Responsibility (CR) Department develops goals, policies and initiatives that support the Firm's business strategies, reflect our values and support the communities where we do business. We believe that financial products, in addition to philanthropy, can serve as a sustainable force for good, generating not only financial return, but also positive social and environmental impact.
To that end, JPMorgan Chase is utilizing proprietary capital to build out a multi-asset impact investing and lending platform to support the Firm's Philanthropic objectives and Strategic Initiatives.

The team is now looking to expand its product capabilities to include equity fund investments. These private fund investments will span multiple sectors (such as Affordable Housing and Sustainability), geographies (both domestic and international), and strategies (such as Real Estate and Venture Capital), with an emphasis on backing diverse fund managers.
The candidate will play a critical role in building out this new capability: formulating strategy for the fund product, navigating internal approval processes, and working across the organization to source, evaluate, and monitor investments.
