The largest bank in the nation, JPMorgan Chase, will pay $75 million to settle claims with the U.S. Virgin Islands. This comes as the aftermath of a lawsuit accusing JPMorgan Chase of aiding Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.

In 2019, the influential financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested again on sex trafficking charges.

The majority of this sum was derived from the sale of his New York mansion and private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Litigation Tangle

According to Brittany Henderson, a lawyer representing Epstein’s abuse victims, “This litigation proves that survivors have a voice, and corporate America is finally ready to listen.”

JPMorgan’s claim that Epstein was merely a regular client has been debunked. Ongoing court cases have revealed a disconcerting level of collaboration between Epstein and certain leaders within the bank.

Disturbing Ties with Epstein

One of the bank’s top executives, Jes Stanley, cultivated a personal relationship with Epstein and, for many years, helped him evade compliance concerns.

Several court documents showed that Epstein and Staley exchanged photos of underaged women for years.

Epstein’s Network Within JPMorgan

Epstein, with over a dozen accounts in the bank, maintained close connections with other executives such as Jamie Dimon and Mary Erdoes. He facilitated connections between them and his wealthy associates.
