JPMAM is a team-based investment management firm using disciplined processes. We have expertise across every key asset class and investment market so we can offer clients the widest range of investment solutions. For JPMAM, Sustainable/Responsible Investing is a forward-looking investment approach that aims to deliver long-term sustainable financial return in a fast changing world. We believe that explicit incorporation of material Environmental, Social and Governance information in the investment process can help to deliver enhanced risk-adjusted returns over the long-run while also serving as a foundation to align portfolios with client values. As stewards of our clients' assets, we seek to incorporate ESG into the investment and business process. We believe that transparency around how a company manages ESG risks and opportunities is part of its value proposition. Management of ESG factors impacts business results in numerous respects including access to capital, cost savings, productivity, revenue growth, market access, reputation, insurance cost and availability, talent retention and risk management.

Please note based on our discussions with PRI, PRI considers JPMAM's Sustainable Investing Statement to fall within the definition of "policy" for purposes of the modules as it describes an overall investment approach

The Sustainable Investing Statement is reviewed on a regular basis by the Sustainable Investing team as well as the Sustainable Investment Leadership Team (SILT), at least once a year, and reported to AMOC (Asset Management Operating Committee) and AMIC (Asset Management Investment Committee). The Statement covers all of our investment engines.

Although our investment horizon varies across different investment engines and styles, our fundamental active portfolios typically look to hold investments for longer horizons (e.g., 5 years or more).

We take a research-driven approach underpinned by our active investment heritage to ESG/Responsible investing. We recognize that sustainable investing represents a broad set of opportunities and that clients may choose to implement their views based on explicit portfolio objectives. With that in mind, we offer an array of investment solutions to meet our clients' financial goals and non-financial objectives.

Our global scale means we are well placed to help our clients manage various challenges and objectives. Our analysts and portfolio managers integrate a wide range of investment risks into the investment process, including environmental impacts. We focus on risks that are material to cash flows, duration of business, credit risk and/or prospective returns in client portfolios. In-depth bottom up analysis provides insight into the long-term sustainability of a business or whether the entities we invest in will remain competitive in the future.

JPMAM's Sustainable Investing Statement outlines our commitment to sustainable investing and outlines our four pillar framework that focuses on ESG integration, data and research, engagement and products and solutions. It also provides our ESG capabilities and specific philosophies by asset class. Jennifer Wu, JPMAM’s Global Head of Sustainable Investing is responsible for leading the efforts across sustainability-focused investment research, solutions-development and investment stewardship with a dedicated team of specialists.  She is also responsible for keeping the Sustainable Investing Statement updated and effective through driving the ESG integration process. The Sustainable Investment Leadership Team (SILT) will also be consulted where changes are necessary. Our investment teams have a quarterly review with our Investment Directors who ensure each team is following our firm level statement as well as the investment guideline that was agreed with our clients.

We have continued our journey to ESG integration across all of our strategies. In order to achieve this, funds must "commit, implement and demonstrate" their level of ESG integration. As of December 2019, 78% of strategies are ESG integrated representing USD 1.5tn. All ESG integrated strategies must be approved by the Sustainable Investment Leadership Team.

Our recent statement on Investment Stewardship “promoting sustainability through investment-led Stewardship” outlines our enhanced approach our approach with close collaboration between our portfolio managers, research analysts and investment stewardship specialists to engage with the companies we invest. In the statement we have also identified five main investment stewardship priorities that we believe have universal applicability and will stand the test of time: Governance, Strategy Alignment with the Long Term, Human Capital Management, Stakeholder engagement and Climate risk. Within each priority area, we have identified related themes that we are seeking to address over a shorter timeframe. These themes will evolve over time, as we engage with investee companies to understand issues and promote best practice. This combination of long-term priorities and evolving, shorter-term themes provides us with a structured and targeted framework to guide our investors and investment stewardship teams globally, as we engage with investee companies around the world. Investment-led, expert-driven investment stewardship will not only enable us to recognize significant risks, identify new opportunities and better generate attractive risk-adjusted returns, but it should also help us to build stronger and more sustainable portfolios for our clients . For example, Climate Risk, especially encouraging corporate disclosure to be TCFD aligned, is one of our top five priorities of our Investment Stewardship activities. Our Investment Stewardship specialists will be putting extra effort on this agenda through our corporate engagement and proxy voting.

In addition, JPMAM’s parent company JPMC’s companywide ESG report provides information on how we are addressing the ESG matters that we and our stakeholders view as most important to our business, including the asset management entities. The ESG report consolidates and summarizes the most important aspects of our work in these areas. The report accompanies our Annual Report, our Proxy Statement and our annual Corporate Responsibility Report.


SG 03. Conflicts of interest

03.1. 組織として、投資プロセスにおける潜在的な利益相反を管理するポリシーを策定しているかどうかについて明示して下さい。

03.2. 投資プロセスにおける潜在的な利益相反を管理するポリシーについて説明してください。

Conflicts include where JPMC or its affiliates are involved in a transaction at an investee company, or provide banking or other services, or where JPM personnel sit on other company boards. To maintain the integrity and independence of JPMAM's proxy voting decisions as well as investment decisions, JPMC has established formal barriers designed to restrict the flow of information between JPMC's securities, lending, investment banking and other divisions to JPMAM investment professionals. The policy is available on our website. A conflict is deemed to exist when voting in relation to JPMC, or for JPMorgan funds, or when JPMAM has knowledge that a JPMorgan affiliate is an advisor or has rendered a fairness opinion with respect to the matter being voted upon. When such conflicts are identified JPMAM will call upon an independent third-party to make the voting decision either in accordance with JPMAM voting guidelines or by the third party using its own guidelines.  Effective January  2020, JPMAM investment professionals may request an exception to this process to vote against certain proposals rather than referring them to an independent third party. The applicable Proxy Committee shall review the Exception Request and shall determine whether JPMAM should vote against the proposal.

JPMC's Conflicts of Interest Policy requires JPMC, all lines of business and Corporate Functions, and its employees to identify and manage actual, potential and perceived conflicts of interest in accordance with the Conflicts of Interest Framework.
