Prof. Paul Sweeting joins J.P. Morgan in strategic investment role

J.P. Morgan Asset Management has announced the appointment of Professor Paul Sweeting in a new role as European head of its strategic investment advisory group (SIAG).

He will report to Peter Rappoport, the advisory group’s newly appointed global head.

Professor Sweeting (pictured) will be based in London and will be responsible for providing the firm’s European institutional client base with tailored advice, analysis and education about various aspects of asset allocation, risk management and investment strategies.

Mike O’Brien, global head of institutional business said, "Paul brings with him extensive actuarial and investment experience from both an academic and applied practical viewpoint. This will be essential to building more advisory-based relationships with our clients. The new role highlights our focus on moving to offering clients much more of an advisory and partnership-based relationship. Paul is ideally placed to help grow this dimension of our business."

Commenting on his appointment, professor Sweeting said, "Pension schemes and insurance companies are increasingly focussed on making the right investment decisions in these challenging times. J.P Morgan Asset Management is keen to find the best answer for each client. I look forward to ensuring that we have the tools and techniques in place to give truly customised solutions, and to further strengthening our relationships with our clients."

Professor Sweeting will retain his role as a professor of actuarial science at the University of Kent. He has previously held positions as a longevity strategist at Munich Re, director of research at Fidelity’s Retirement Institute, and senior manager at PwC, along with other academic, investment and pensions industry positions.

Professor Sweeting is a Council Member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and a former member of The Actuary magazine’s editorial advisory panel.
