JP Morgan Asset Management has made three appointments to its Hedge Fund Solutions Investment Specialist teams, which advise clients looking to access hedge fund and alternative credit solutions.

Lynnette Ferguson has been hired as Head of the Americas Investment Specialist Team, Hedge Fund Solutions. Karim Leguel has been promoted to Head of International Investment Specialist Team, Hedge Fund Solutions. Lyn Ngooi has been hired as Hedge Fund Solutions Investment Specialist for APAC clients. All three positions are new and effective immediately.
 
Ferguson is based in New York and reports to Jamie Kramer, Head of JP Morgan’s Alternative Solutions Group. Leguel is based in London and will continue to report to Kramer in his new role. Ngooi is based in Singapore and reports to Leguel.
 
JP Morgan is one of the industry’s largest hedge fund solution providers advising clients on more than USD17 billion in hedge fund assets. Hedge Fund Solutions is part of JP Morgan Global Alternatives, which has more than USD130 billion in alternative assets under management.
 
“In the face of the long-in-the-tooth economic expansion, the threats of a global trade war and the return of equity volatility, investors are significantly increasing their target allocations to hedge funds. Under Lynnette and Karim, our Investment Specialist teams’ extensive investment experience and deep understanding of client needs, goals and motivations will help these investors access the benefits of customised hedge fund solutions including private credit, quantitative, ESG-focused and long/short strategies,” says Jamie Kramer, Head of JP Morgan’s Alternative Solutions Group.
