BEST FUND PROVIDER – EUROPE EQUITY
J.P. MORGAN ASSET MANAGEMENT
Against the backdrop of political uncertainties in the Eurozone and dampened investor sentiment, the JPMorgan Funds – Europe Equity Plus Fund has delivered a since-launch return of 70.6% as at end-September 2018.
The fund’s performance showcases the European equity team’s judicious application of common sense philosophy within a rigorous, bottom-up process to exploit persistent market inefficiencies that have arisen due to human behavioural biases, achieving competitive long-term risk-adjusted returns.
A flagship offering for private bank clients, the fund extends the insights of portfolio managers by utilising short positions to generate alpha and manage risk more efficiently, enabling greater performance consistency. Crowned with a five-star Morningstar rating, the fund is one of a kind in the space.
Meanwhile, the JPMorgan Investment Funds – Europe Strategic Dividend Fund has also generated competitive yields relative to its key peers, with its (mth) EUR class offering a 12-month annualised yield of 5.2% as at end-August 2018. Designed for investors seeking exposure to high-yield stocks in Europe, the fund is one of the firm’s best-selling among its private bank clients.
A consistent innovator of European products and funds, J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s IEG behavioural finance investment team manages assets worth EUR 42 billion — an amount reflecting the asset manager’s range of solutions, excellent performance, and high-quality servicing.
