JPMorgan is buying UK robo-advisor Nutmeg
JPMorgan Chase said Thursday it has agreed to buy British online investment management platform Nutmeg for an undisclosed sum.
The U.S. banking giant said the deal, which is still subject to regulatory approval, would complement its plans to launch a standalone digital bank brand in the U.K. later this year.
With more than £3.5 billion ($4.9 billion) in assets under management, Nutmeg is one of the U.K.’s largest robo-advisors. The company offers a range of investment accounts, including ISAs, pensions and general investment accounts. Rivals include the likes of Wealthsimple, Moneyfarm and Moneybox.
