JPMorgan Chase is celebrating the opening of its first retail branch in South Boston, located at 441 W Broadway.

 “We’ve long viewed South Boston as a place we wanted to be,” said Alba Shaba, branch manager for the Chase branch in South Boston. “We look forward to building new relationships and helping our customers during life’s most important moments, like opening their first savings account, buying their first home, or planning for retirement.”

 The branch is about 3,000 square feet and features modern, bright designs with comfortable meeting areas and state-of-the-art banking technology. A dedicated Chase Private Client team will provide premium banking services, personalized attention, and access to the expertise and investment capabilities of J.P. Morgan to help families reach their most important goals. Customers may also meet with financial and home lending advisors and business banking relationship managers.

“We have a fantastic team of bankers who are dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers,” said Shaba. “We want to be where our customers live and work, which is why we’re excited to be growing our presence here.”

Chase’s expansion in Boston is part of the bank’s plan announced in February to open more than 50 branches in Massachusetts by 2027, bringing the total to more than 110 branches statewide.  

“When Chase enters a community, we bring the resources of a global institution with a focus on local solutions,” said Justin Brovitz, Regional Director for JPMorgan Chase’s Consumer Bank in New England and is based in Massachusetts. “In addition to going above and beyond to serve our customers, we are going to engage and collaborate with our neighbors to create more equitable economic growth here in South Boston.”

Community Impact

Since 2019, the firm has committed over $25 million to philanthropic initiatives in the region – including an investment to Dorchester Bay Economic Development to support small business preservation. In tandem with these efforts, the firm is deepening relationships and expanding our presence through community branches, including our Mattapan Community Center branch. These branches serve as hubs, hosting more than 410 free and open-to-the-community events, including financial health workshops, skills training, and small business pop-ups.

    Kudos to Chase and good for Southie.
    It’s incredible to me that BofA has ceded this neighborhood to a strong competitor.
    1 shitty ATM at EB & I….thats it? What a joke. Seaport doesn’t count. 8 people standing around to handle the 8 (Rich?) people who walk in per day.
    The once great SBSB franchise purchased by their predecessor is finito/gone/adios.
    But c’mon…give us some ATM options. Or we’re leaving. I’m not alone in SB.
