JPMorgan Chase is in talks to take control of a prominent British investment bank after striking a deal for half the firm five years ago, a person familiar with the matter said Sunday night.
JPMorgan has offered £1 billion ($1.7 billion) to buy out its remaining stake in its joint venture with the investment bank Cazenove Group, a nearly 200-year-old firm with relationships throughout Europe and the Middle East. A deal could be announced within the next week. – (lede pars by Eric Dash @ nytimes, 15th inst.)
