JPMorgan Chase informed approximately 1,000 employees of defunct First Republic Bank that their positions will no longer be available. This announcement comes shortly after JPMorgan acquired a majority of First Republic’s assets, following the government’s seizure of the San Francisco-based regional bank on May 1 2023.

The CNN report further disclosed that a substantial majority, nearly 85% of First Republic’s workforce, have been extended offers for transitional or full-time roles within the organization.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) oversaw a bidding process after regulators shut down First Republic, with JPMorgan emerging as the successful bidder, with a substantial payment of $10.6 billion to the corporation.
