New York, March 13, 2024 – J.P. Morgan Asset Management (“The Firm”) today announced that industry-veteran, Jon Maier, is joining as Chief ETF Strategist, effective March 18. In the role, Maier will lead ETF Insights, a global program of actionable thought leadership and resources for the rapidly growing and evolving ETF universe. 

“The asset management industry is at an inflection point with the growth of active ETFs. We are building on our industry leading advice and insights programs to help investors take full advantage of the investment and portfolio construction benefits of these tools” said Jed Laskowitz, CIO and Global Head of Asset Management Solutions.

Maier’s appointment comes at a time of incredible ETF demand from investors around the world. J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s global ETF business has grown to more than $160 billion in AUM over the past five years, placing the Firm second in active ETF AUM and eighth in overall ETF AUM. The Firm also received notable industry awards including Best Active ETF Issuer from ETF Express and ETF of the Year from both ETF.com and With Intelligence for JPMorgan Equity Premium Income ETF (JEPI)’s performance in 2023.1

Morgan Asset Management. “Very few in the industry have the tangible, hands-on experience in the way that Jon has, and we believe that all investors will benefit from his deep knowledge and development of this platform.”

Maier brings with him deep credibility and a proven track record, having held research-oriented roles for nearly 30 years. He previously served as Chief Investment Officer of ETFs for Global X. Prior to that, he was Managing Director, ETF Strategist, at Merrill Lynch, where he oversaw management of $50 billion. Maier will report to Bryon Lake.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the J.P. Morgan Asset Management ETF team,” said Jon Maier. “The work that the firm has achieved is second to none, and I look forward to using my experience and skillset to contribute to its growth. Through the ETF Insights program, we are focused on being investors’ go-to source for timely views and innovative strategies, fostering the continued adoption and use of, specifically, actively managed, ETFs.”

Maier and the ETF Insights program will help bring clarity to a fast-growing, but still unfamiliar, sector for many investors. ETF Insights joins a suite of award-winning investor programs from J.P. Morgan Asset Management, including Market Insights, which is celebrating its 20th year in 2024 as the industry standard in helping investors build better portfolios.
