Leading financial names have shaped the company’s growth
J.P. Morgan Asset Management growth has been synonymous with many of the leading names in finance. John Pierpont Morgan was the leading US financier of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Other leading names to shape the company include Robert Fleming, a financier working in Scotland in the late 19th century. His determination to open up overseas investment to more private investors through collective investment earned him the name “The Father of Investment Trusts.” Almost a century later, the 1970s saw Chase Manhattan become one of the leading US banks under the chairmanship of David Rockefeller.
This heritage gave J.P. Morgan an exceptional drive to launch pioneering strategies in new markets, including style investing, dynamic investing and total return strategies. By continuing its heritage of innovation and visionary thinking, J.P. Morgan aims to ensure its clients share in the most compelling opportunities offered by today’s fast-moving investment markets.
