J.P. Morgan Workplace Solutions’ Content Team comprises a dynamic and talented team of writers and experienced professionals who strive to deliver useful equity insights and simplify complex equity information, all with the aim of helping you to better understand equity management.

We’ve opened a new office in Calgary, Canada

We’ve officially opened our first Canadian office in the city of Calgary, Alberta, and announced 100 new high-skill jobs over the next two to three years as part of our global expansion plan.  The new office is based in the state-of-the-art Edison Building in the heart of the city and will be home to our team of 20 Calgary-based staff.

There is a palpable sense of excitement in the city of Calgary, which offers the energy of a large metropolitan city, a warm and welcoming spirit, as well as a thriving technology and innovation sector. The city has so many similarities with Global Shares – from its entrepreneurial spirit, and diverse, skilled, friendly workforce, to being front runners in digital transformation. The city’s wide range of outdoor leisure and recreational activities were also important factors in our decision to invest in Calgary, as it offers such an attractive work life balance. Calgary ticks all our boxes, and we are delighted to welcome our team members to our new office.
We’re a global leader for the equity incentive services industry, and a ‘Best in Tech’ Great Place to Work® accredited workplace. Our new Canada base allows us to provide even more local skill and support to our growing client base in this region at a very exciting time for Global Shares.
