There has been a paradigm shift in the global markets. Long gone are the ultra-low-risk days that followed the end of the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) zero-interest rate regime. Today, the pricing of emerging market bonds has been hit by a strengthening USD, with data quality and accessibility, lower analyst coverage, policy intervention and political risk among the foremost causes of market pricing inefficiency.

J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s demonstrable ability to generate alpha for its private banking channel in the global emerging market bond space is anchored first-and-foremost by its extensive research team which includes on-the-ground experts. Indeed, the firm – one of the most resourceful in the industry – is able to deliver first-in-class research support to its investments in the emerging markets debt universe, supplementing portfolio managers’ investments with sound due diligence delivered by a team spanning three continents.

With 43 dedicated emerging market debt portfolio managers, analysts and traders based across seven cities, J.P. Morgan Asset Management has proven itself unsurpassed in its ability to capture and analyse opportunities, offering to Asian HNWIs a plethora of products on its Luxembourg platform and in segregated, tailor-made mandates. This is evidenced by the fact that it manages US$35 billion in various emerging market strategies today.

Global reach, depth of experience, and industry-leading research capabilities make J.P. Morgan Asset Manager this year’s Best Fund Provider – Global Emerging Market Bond.
