JPMorgan Funds - Europe Equity Absolute Alpha Fund and JPMorgan Funds - Europe Equity Plus Fund – Portfolio Management Team Update

As announced five months ago, David Allen, one of three co-portfolio managers on JPMorgan Funds - Europe Equity Absolute Alpha Fund and JPMorgan Funds - Europe Equity Plus Fund, is relocating to Australia and will therefore be removed as a named manager on 30th September 2016. He will continue to work on the European Equity Behavioural Finance Investment Research team and will be departing from J.P. Morgan Asset Management in 2017.

The other co-portfolio managers, Michael Barakos and Nick Horne, are amongst the most senior portfolio managers within the European Equity Behavioural Finance Team. Both have enviable investment performance records, and given the team based approach in managing the funds, minimal impact upon the funds is expected.
