J.P. Morgan is one of the world's most respected investment managers. In the Asia Pacific region alone, investment teams in Hong Kong, Melbourne, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Taipei and Tokyo manage assets on behalf of a diverse client base – from Intermediary or Channel clients, retirement plan clients to small, individual retail investors. As a result, the products and services we offer are equally broad, covering all asset classes, sectors and styles. We are committed to developing innovative investment solutions and new sources of return for all of our clients.
One of the distinguishing characteristics of our investment platform is our commitment to multiple investment processes. We provide an innovative product lineup designed for global diversification and a commitment to the highest quality service. This means that we can offer our clients a "one-stop-shop" for their investment needs.
Our commitment to Asia
Our presence in Asia began over 40 years ago, when we successfully established our first office in Hong Kong. Shortly afterwards, we expanded into Taiwan and Japan, where we are leaders in our industry. In 2004, we established our business in China and quickly became one of the top asset management companies in the country. We are committed to taking advantage of the exciting opportunities open to us in China and will continue to grow and expand our business there over the coming years.
We are also committed to gaining market share in other Asian markets, such as Korea and India. By offering clients innovative investment solutions that invest not only in Asian securities but in global asset classes too, we are confident that our expansion into these markets will continue. Our aim is to become the most recognized asset manager in the Asia Pacific region. Building on our already well-established reputation in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, the United States and Europe, we will continue to offer a wide range of international and local products to suit all needs.
A premier investment house in Asia
As a pioneer in Asia Pacific’s investment management industry, the firm was one of the first fund houses in Hong Kong to obtain approval from the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) to launch hedge fund products to local retail investors. In 2006, the Firm launched the first open-ended fund investing in China A shares to be offered in Hong Kong, and the first Vietnam equity fund in the following year. In July 2009, the JF China New Generation Fund was launched and was the first open-ended retail fund in Hong Kong to invest in both China A shares and Renminbi denominated bonds.
We continually seek to enhance the range of strategies that we offer to meet the increasingly sophisticated investment requirements of our clients. Our commitment to product innovation, and the continuous launch of a diverse and performance driven product palette is what sets us apart in the industry.
