Best Fund Provider – Liquid Alternative
J.P. MORGAN ASSET MANAGEMENT
While the broader market experienced a bumper 2017, alternatives had to perform and differentiate in order to compete with simple, low-cost, beta-riding investments of all kinds, which dished out record-breaking returns.
For asset managers, a particularly poignant opportunity in Asia’s private banks, was to lend a basket of high conviction themes for concentrated alpha generation, coupled with proven expertise to manage the downside through long/short investment capabilities.

In addition to its thematic focus and long/short exposure, J.P. Morgan Asset Management demonstrated client-centric flexibility, offering access to share classes denominated in multiple currencies and bespoke content suited for specific needs, all at a competitive cost free of performance-linked fees.
Private banks nominated the American asset manager to help extend gains while providing cushion on the downside.
