In today’s complex, fast-moving markets you need a proven investment partner who has the resources and insight to help you achieve your investment goals the way you want. With over 130 years’ stock market experience, we’ve picked up certain things we know are essential to give you consistent performance. That’s why every portfolio we manage is underpinned by the same investment beliefs.
- Star teams, not star managers – yes, we value individual strength but for consistency year after year we use team-based research, stock selection, portfolio construction and risk management.
- Clearly defined, disciplined processes – extra clarity for you. Our investment processes follow a systematic approach, strictly adhered to throughout the market cycle.
- Quantitative and qualitative analysis – we fully utilise technology as markets become more complex. But we always integrate our ‘quant’ findings with the expertise of our people for the complete picture.
- Integrated risk controls – you get extra security because we look to outperform on a risk-adjusted basis. We use advanced tools such as BARRA and Risk Metrics to track errors, factor tilts and we constantly monitor stock liquidity. Because of our size we can also devote specialists across every major asset class – including emerging alternative areas. And by applying knowledge learned from one team – in hedge funds or short strategies, for example – we can maximise returns for all of our clients, wherever they may be.

J.P. Morgan is part of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), a leading global financial services firm with assets of $1.4 trillion and operations in more than 50 countries. The firm’s wholesale businesses operate globally under the J.P. Morgan brand. The consumer, small, and middle-market businesses operate under the Chase brand. J.P. Morgan has been helping its clients do business for more than 200 years. To describe our firm and our people we can find no better phrase than that of one of our founders: “at all times the idea of doing only first-class business, and that in a first-class way“.
J.P. Morgan, Jr., first used this phrase in 1933 when he spoke to the banking and currency sub-committee of the U.S. Senate. He believed a banker's role was to provide clients with exceptional service coupled with outstanding execution and unquestioned integrity. More than 70 years later, his statement is as relevant now as it was then. J.P. Morgan's mission is to be the best financial services company in the world. To achieve this goal, we focus relentlessly on carrying out our business principles of aspiring to be completely client focused by building a great team from within.
Being a first-class firm also means doing “good”, not just doing well. J.P. Morgan has a proud tradition of being a good corporate citizen around the world. We dedicate significant financial and human capital to supporting issues and causes important to our business and our people.
