Important information about your investments and potential conflicts of interest
Conflicts of interest will arise whenever JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. or any of its affiliates (together, “J.P. Morgan”) have an actual or perceived economic or other incentive in its management of our clients’ portfolios to act in a way that benefits J.P. Morgan. Conflicts will result, for example (to the extent the following activities are permitted in your account): (1) when J.P. Morgan invests in an investment product, such as a mutual fund, structured product, separately managed account or hedge fund issued or managed by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. or an affiliate, such as J.P. Morgan Investment Management Inc.; (2) when a J.P. Morgan entity obtains services, including trade execution and trade clearing, from an affiliate; (3) when J.P. Morgan receives payment as a result of purchasing an investment product for a client’s account; or (4) when J.P. Morgan receives payment for providing services (including shareholder servicing, recordkeeping or custody) with respect to investment products purchased for a client’s portfolio. Other conflicts will result because of relationships that J.P. Morgan has with other clients or when J.P. Morgan acts for its own account.
Investment strategies are selected from both J.P. Morgan and third-party asset managers and are subject to a review process by our manager research teams. From this pool of strategies, our portfolio construction teams select those strategies we believe fit our asset allocation goals and forward looking views in order to meet the portfolio's investment objective.
As a general matter, we prefer J.P. Morgan managed strategies. We expect the proportion of J.P. Morgan managed strategies will be high (in fact, up to I00 percent) in strategies such as, for example, cash and high-quality fixed income, subject to applicable law and any account-specific considerations.
While our internally managed strategies generally align well with our forward looking views, and we are familiar with the investment processes as well as the risk and compliance philosophy of the firm, it is important to note that J.P. Morgan receives more overall fees when internally managed strategies are included. We offer the option of choosing to exclude J.P. Morgan managed strategies (other than cash and liquidity products) in certain portfolios.
Loans and lines of credit are extended at the discretion of J.P. Morgan, and J.P. Morgan has no commitment to either extend any loan or line of credit, or make loans available under a line of credit. Any extension of credit is subject to credit approval by J.P. Morgan and, if approved, the terms contained in the definitive loan documents. Loans collateralized by securities involve certain risks and may not be suitable for all borrowers and investors. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. A decline in the value of securities pledged as collateral may require you to provide additional collateral and/or pay down your loan or line of credit in order to avoid the forced sale of securities in your account. J.P. Morgan establishes loan values from time to time, in its sole discretion, for each of the securities which serve as collateral. At any time, and without prior notice to you, J.P. Morgan can increase or decrease its loan values for securities, and this may result in your loan or line of credit being out of compliance. If the outstanding amount of your loan or line of credit ever exceeds the aggregate loan value of the securities in your account, J.P. Morgan can sell the securities in your account to cover the deficiency in loan value. You also will be responsible for any remaining balance of your loan or line of credit after such a sale. J.P. Morgan can sell your securities without contacting you and you are not entitled to choose which securities are sold. J.P. Morgan may attempt to notify a client before securities are sold; however it is not required to do so. When selling securities, J.P. Morgan will not be required to marshal assets or act in accordance with any fiduciary duty it otherwise might have. If securities are sold at prices higher than their initial cost, that may result in adverse tax consequences to you. You should consult your tax advisor in order to fully understand the tax implications associated with pledging securities for a loan or line of credit. Please read your loan documents carefully so that you understand your obligations.
