We have published a new Morningstar Qualitative Rating and Research Report for JPMorgan Global Consumer Trends.

"Manager Peter Kirkman’s background is primarily in Japanese equities. He joined the firm in 2001 and became CIO of the Fleming Japan team. Prior to JPM, he spent time at TCW and Prudential where his focus was also Japanese equities. His move to the global equity team was driven in part by his desire to make positive absolute returns for his investors; while he had a solid relative track record at his funds, the end result was often a decrease in value as the Japanese market was in decline. His drive to succeed in this offering is further backed by a significant personal investment at launch--we think this helps align his interests well with those of his shareholders."
