J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM) has launched its Guide to the Markets in Asia. The guide aims to help investors better understand and interpret global markets, promote long-term investing, diversification and ultimately make better investment decisions.
Through illustrative charts and graphs of markets, trends and statistics, the guide is a unique tool that breaks down complex information so that it is digestible and repeatable. Released on the third business day of the quarter, the guide addresses important macro topics, and provides bankers and their clients with a logical framework for discussion so that investment decisions are based on logic, reason and analysis.
The Asian version of the guide is now being introduced throughout the region as part of the global effort to extend the reach and influence of J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s Market Insights program, which has proven to be very successful in other parts of the world. Available in English, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Japanese and Korean, the Asian guide does not just focus on local economies and markets, but also includes a global perspective making it more relevant to Asian investors.
Commenting on the launch, Jed Laskowitz, chief executive officer, Asia Pacific at J.P. Morgan Asset Management said: “The launch of the guide is a major step in our efforts to help investors and their advisors better understand what is driving markets and the economy. Our goal is to help investors make decisions based on facts, diversify and provide investors with the fortitude to stay invested long-term. Market-timing and chasing last year’s best performing asset class or style is a flawed strategy. The guide and our perspective will help investors and their advisors to make better investment decisions.”
J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s global market insights strategy team has been instrumental in launching the Guide to the Markets and is a leader in providing fact-based market education to investors. Headed by Chief Global Strategist, Dr. David Kelly, the team is comprised of highly experienced strategists based in various locations around the world that are highly regarded and deeply experienced with a focus on delivering the highest quality market perspective and analysis to clients globally. Tai Hui, chief market strategist Asia heads the market insights strategy team in Asia.
The firm’s client-first mentality has been the motivation and mission of the guide since its inception in the US nearly a decade ago. The European version has been expanded recently to include versions in several languages, and last year a Brazil version in Portuguese and English was launched.
