Exclusive: JPM AM switches manager line-up on trio of equity funds

Exclusive: JPM AM switches manager line-up on trio of equity funds

JPM Asset Management is changing the managers on three of its Asia Pacific equity funds, Citywire Selector can reveal.

A spokesperson for the asset manager confirmed that the changes to funds will be effective from 29 September. There will be no changes to the investment process. 

Citywire A-rated Mark Davids will step down from the $701.9 million JPM Pacific Equity fund, which he has managed since May 2015.

Citywire AAA-rated Aisa Ogoshi will continue to manage the fund with Citywire AA-rated Robert Lloyd acting as back-up manager.

Davids will remain at the firm and was recently appointed co-manager on the JPM Asia Equity fund with Citywire AAA-rated Joanna Kwok.

Meanwhile, Alice Wong will join Davids and Oliver Cox as back-up manager on $976.2 million JPM Asia Pacific Equity fund.

She has worked closely with the managers as a product analyst and is involved in portfolio construction discussions. JPM AM has named her on the fund to formalise her role and reflect her increased responsibilities in the daily running of the fund. 

China A-shares

The asset manager also confirmed it is realigning responsibilities within its Greater China team. Rebecca Jiang has been appointed to the JPM China A-Share Opportunities fund.

Jiang is a named manager on several funds at JPM AM and will join Citywire + rated Howard Wang on the fund.

Dong Xu will relinquish his role on the fund, but will remain at the asset manager and focus on developing JPM AM’s onshore China business.
