JPM Private Investments (PI) brings together the Strategic and Heritage Private Equity (HPE) investing activities of the firm into a single center of investing excellence. PI has approximately 40 professionals located across New York, Chicago, London and Hong Kong.
Strategic Investments (SI) supports the firm’s businesses and corporate functions in making strategically impactful investments that also provide acceptable return profiles. Specifically, the role of the SI team is to collaborate with the sponsoring LOB to identify, diligence, structure, negotiate, close, monitor and divest investments. Critically, the balance sheet, capital and P&L belong to the LOBs. Sponsors within the applicable LOB own the strategic investment positions with support from the SI team. The SI team actively manages a portfolio of over 130 investments with a carrying value to JPMC of ~ $2 bn. Although most investments are held by the Corporate & Investment Bank (CIB), the SI portfolio contains investments across all LOBs.
Private Equity (HPE) supports the activities of the Heritage One Equity
Partners and Heritage JPM Partners portfolios and ensures they are subject to a
consistent control and governance framework.
The HPE team oversees an orderly wind-down of the portfolio while
maximizing returns to JPM and its third party investors.
