BlackRock appoints co-head of global fundamental equity


BlackRock has appointed Chris Jones as co-head of global fundamental equity as well as head and chief investment officer of Americas fundamental equity.

Based in New York, he will report to Quintin Price, global head of the firm’s alpha strategies group, who has overall responsibility for the management of this business.
In his new role, Jones will be responsible for overseeing BlackRock’s USD124 billion US-based fundamental equity business and will join Nigel Bolton, head and chief investment officer of international fundamental equity, as co-head of global fundamental equity, which represents USD242 billion in assets. He will partner closely with investment professionals throughout the firm to help generate consistent, long-term performance for clients.
“Chris Jones’ breadth of experience and distinguished track record present an invaluable opportunity for the firm,” says Price. “We are pleased to have him join the team and look forward to the impact he will have on elevating the capabilities of our fundamental equity franchise while seeking to deliver strong investment performance to our clients.”
Jones joins BlackRock from JP Morgan Asset Management, where he had a 32-year career with the firm, most recently serving as the chief investment officer of the growth and small cap US equity team. During his tenure with JP Morgan, he held numerous roles across the equity business assuming fund management and analytical responsibilities for the small cap team in 1986 and later serving as the team’s chief investment officer. In 2006, he began heading all of JP Morgan’s growth investments.
