BNY Mellon and 11 other banks have been listed as settlement agents and liquidity providers for the brand-new service. Moreover, the Federal Reserve has already stated its commitment to bringing the service to over 9,000 banks. It will be incredibly interesting to see how the list of adopters grows from here. 

JP Morgan is among the largest financial service firms on the planet. With assets of $2.6 trillion and a worldwide presence, they have become a leading investment banking firm in the world.
