JP Morgan Asset Management appoints international head of ETFs


JP Morgan Asset Management has appointed Bryon Lake as head of international ETFs, a newly created role.

Lake will be based in London and will be responsible for driving and accelerating the firm’s international ETF expansion.
Lake will partner with distribution, client service and investment teams to identify opportunities in the growing ETF product categories in Europe and Asia. 
“Our intention is to build a global beta strategies business with strategic, alternative, and ETF capabilities to serve the needs of clients globally. Having initially focused our efforts in the US, expansion internationally represents the next step,” says Michael Camacho, global head of beta strategies, JP Morgan Asset Management.
“As one of the industry’s most accomplished ETF executives, Bryon brings impressive leadership and momentum to the team. He will be instrumental in helping to shape our strategy including our product development, distribution agenda and strategic direction,” adds Camacho.
Lake joins from Invesco Powershares, where he held various positions in his 12 year tenure, including most recently serving as head of Invesco PowerShares EMEA.
“The opportunity to oversee the international expansion and development of a new business within a committed and deeply resourced global asset management firm is very exciting. JP Morgan Asset Management’s combination of strong intellectual property and industry-leading technology means we should be well equipped to create innovative new ways of serving investors in an ETF structure,” says Lake.
“Investors are seeking new forms of asset allocation in order to generate returns. We’re focused on developing strong and diversified building blocks for client portfolios, whether they are active, strategic beta, alternative beta or more thematic indices. We are also poised to build on the operational and technological capabilities around beta strategies already in place for the US business to meet the needs of European and Asian investors,” adds Camacho.
