Thinking Out Loud - June 2013
With this 2Q 2013 edition, we are pleased to unveil a fresh design for our publication. I hope you enjoy the updated format of Thought, which coincides with its theme, “Transformations and Opportunities.”
That title reflects the general landscape for institutional investors and how regulatory and systemic shifts have created enormous changes along with concrete opportunities to grow your business over time. J.P. Morgan, as well, continues to transform to meet your evolving needs. We have made excellent progress thus far toward integrating our capabilities in ways that can better enable you to efficiently achieve your business goals.
That’s why a significant effort is underway to consolidate several of our web portals into J.P. Morgan Markets, the firm’s robust platform that will ultimately deliver your solutions across the trade lifecycle: research, analytics and structuring, multi-product trading, post-trade capabilities and the full array of Investor Services products. Look for more information about that effort later this year.
Another initiative that aims to deliver a best-in-class, globally consistent operating model across our Global Custody and GlobeClear products continues to be rolled out via a series of enhancements. The initial asset-servicing requirements have been implemented, and a second phase is on schedule for 4Q 2013.
And lastly, one quite important undertaking is the launch of our new Collateral Central capabilities. We’ll provide more detail about that in our next issue. Our goal in this fluid landscape isto be the provider you trust for all the solutions you need.
Thank you for reading Thought. Please know that your questions and comments are always welcome and may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
