While it may have initially been revealed that JPMorgan took more than a few years to cut ties with Jeffrey Epstein even after the initial accusations, a more thorough investigation found ties that the company tried to obscure.
As it turns out JPMorgan and Epstein’s relationship was far more profound than they made it out to be. They’ve continued meeting with him and processing his transactions long after he’d been labeled as a sex offender.

The investigation found officials from JPMorgan regularly held meetings at Epstein’s townhouse in New York for three years straight; they’re probably going to get away with it.

The issue lies in the fact that JPMorgan lied for the sake of money. They stated they shut down Epstein’s accounts as early as 2013; yet, they were meeting with him for years after that.
Top lieutenant to the bank’s CEO Jamie Dimon, Mary Erdoes, made numerous trips to Epstein’s townhouse on the Upper East Side back in the 2011-2013 period, which is when he was still one of the bank’s partners.
A series of e-mails between the two revealed she was giving him inside info on some charitable funds the banks were involved in creating, meaning he’d been involved with JPMorgan on a much deeper level than just being one of their clients.

Epstein’s Upper East Side apartment must have a hell of a view
Another official from the bank, John Duffy, also made several meetings with Epstein at his Upper East Side home back in April 2013. Suspiciously enough, it wasn’t even a month later that the bank approved a loan for Epstein against his own accounts.
This is made worse by the fact that he’d previously been a major liability to the bank, due to his unusual banking practices. If you consider the man was running a sex trafficking operation, it’s easy to see why everything was so obscured from view.
More recently though, Justin Nelson, a JPMorgan employee who was tasked with overseeing Epstein’s account, made more than half a dozen trips to the same location to meet with the financier.
This was happening between 2014 and 2017, long after the bank “cut ties” with Epstein.

While no one can really tell why JPMorgan would expose itself to so much risk by continuing to work with Epstein, money is definitely one of the factors.
On the other hand, this means JPMorgan committed a series of deceptive acts; they lied about their affiliations with a known sex offender and even helped him.This article appeared in The Record Daily and has been published here with permission.
