May 27, 2011
J.P. Morgan strengthened its position in the All-Asia Research Team client poll published by Institutional Investor magazine, winning two more team awards in 2011 than in 2010.
J.P. Morgan captured 26 total team positions this year. Four of the firm's research teams were ranked number one in their sectors: Banks (Sunil Garg, head of Asia-Pacific Equity Research, and team); Equity Derivatives (Tony Lee, head of Equity Derivatives and Delta One Strategy Asia Pacific, and team); Quantitative Research (Steven Malin, global head of Equity Quantitative Strategy, and team); and Autos and Auto Parts (Frank Li, head of China Research, chief China strategist & head of Asian Autos and Auto Parts Research, and team).
The magazine's survey of portfolio managers, its 18th annual ranking of the region's best analysts, was based on responses from nearly 3,000 buy-side analysts and investment professionals at some 935 institutions managing an estimated $1.6 trillion in non-Japanese Asian equities, according to the magazine.
The All-Asia Research Team recognition adds to the list of accolades that J.P. Morgan research teams globally have received from Institutional Investor. In April, Hajime Kitano, chief equity strategist, was ranked number one for 2011 All-Japan Research Team. In October of last year, J.P. Morgan was also named the number one 2010 All-America Research Team.
