The success with Casenove may enable JPMorgan to gain a foothold in Europe; 7.8% of its revenues were from investment banking, up from the year before.

In 2004, JPMorgan bought 50% of Cazenove. The purchase was completed in 2010 and now JPMorgan has gone from laggard to investment banking leader, followed by Barclays and Goldman Sachs.
