NEW YORK, March 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- J.P. Morgan Asset Management today announced enhancements to its Portfolio Insights Service that helps financial advisors build stronger portfolios through customized analysis. The updated platform aligns with the firm's continued commitment, and significant ongoing investment, to provide superior tools and services designed to support financial advisors and their business.
The Model Portfolio Analysis is now powered by Hibiscus, the firm's proprietary portfolio construction and risk management tool that was previously used exclusively by its portfolio management teams. The newly integrated platform generates a comprehensive, comparative view of composition, performance, and risk data for mutual funds, separately managed accounts and ETFs, offering financial advisors access to customized, user-friendly reports that are highly flexible and tailored to meet their needs.
"In a world of lower returns and higher volatility, portfolio construction and manager selection analysis is more critical than ever for financial advisors as they work with their clients to address individual needs," said Andrea Lisher, Head of North America, Global Funds, J.P. Morgan Asset Management. "Our Portfolio Insights Service helps solve these challenges, generating analyses that help advisors make informed decisions based on personalized insights and gain a better understanding of the potential drivers of risk and return."
Financial advisors may request a custom analysis by contacting their J.P. Morgan Funds Client Advisor. Depending on their needs, advisors may receive the Model Portfolio Analysis, Investment Heat Map or Fund Analysis report. The firm encourages advisors to partner with their Client Advisors or Portfolio Insights Specialists for a one-on-one discussion to help uncover opportunities, evaluate risks, and access current views from J.P. Morgan Asset Management's Multi-Asset Solutions team.
"Our team of Portfolio Insights Specialists has reviewed thousands of portfolios annually and has conducted more than 1,000 calls with advisors to help navigate and analyze today's challenging investment environment," said Stephen Kaplan, Head of Product Strategy Americas and Global Portfolio Insights, J.P. Morgan Asset Management. "The new enhancements to our Portfolio Insights Service allow us to perform deeper analysis and help even more advisors gain insight and make informed decisions as trusted partners for their clients."
