Building stronger portfolios
Watch the video version on YouTube.
Successful long-term investing requires both the flexibility to navigate the ever-changing market tides and an engine of long-term assets to carry you forward. In this episode, we’re going to talk about both—how investors can build portfolios to navigate volatile market environments and generate better long-term returns. Such an endeavor requires an in-depth understanding of portfolio composition, the drivers of risk and return and the right mix of asset classes that are best suited for different market environments.
In today’s episode, Dr. David Kelly is joined by Corey Hill, Head of U.S. Portfolio Insights at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to dive into how his team is helping investors build stronger portfolios.

The menu of investment solutions has evolved dramatically over the last 10 years, as innovation in financial planning tools has enabled the development of customized and flexible strategies.

Maximizing your retirement nest egg

Regardless of where you are in life, you need a plan for the future, and for most Americans, that involves planning for retirement. The task can feel overwhelming at times and easily be pushed aside for later, more pressing times. However, a well-constructed plan for the future not only helps ensure a secure retirement, but can be a powerful engine for savings and wealth generation. For today’s episode, Dr. David Kelly is joined by Michael Conrath, Chief Retirement Strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset Management to guide us through the toolkit for retirement planning and the key strategies that individuals can leverage.

Fine-tuning portfolios with active ETFs
Watch the video version of this podcast on YouTube.
New and innovative technologies have disrupted industries time and time again, creating more efficient ways to reach desired outcomes. The financial services industry is no exception, and options for investing today look far different than they did 100 years ago. The exchange traded fund, or ETF, is one example of these technologies changing the ways that we invest. Investors may associate ETFs with passive management, but the recent growth of actively managed ETFs is challenging that assumption. For today’s episode, Dr. David Kelly is joined by Bryon Lake, Global Head of ETF Solutions at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to discuss how investors are using active ETFs to harness the tools of active management in a complex investment environment.
The world of alternative investing
Watch the video version of the podcast on YouTube.
In this episode, we dive into alternative assets. Alternatives have seen incredible growth in the last decade, and have provided new strategies for investing in public and private markets, as well as better ways to generate alpha, income and diversification in traditional stock and bond portfolios. There are many kinds of alternative assets, and all have specific benefits and risks that require investors to understand each of them individually. Alternatives have also become much more accessible, and the growth of their overall asset size increasingly means that all investors—regardless of whether they’re actually invested or not—need to know what is happening in alternative markets.
For this conversation, Dr. David Kelly is joined by Anton Pil, Global Head of Alternatives, who has led the impressive growth of the alternatives platform at J.P. Morgan Asset Management.

Back to school on the U.S. economy
As we wrap up our summer series, Market Movers, Dr. David Kelly is joined by Michael Feroli, Chief U.S. Economist for the JP Morgan Investment Bank, to dive into the outlook for the U.S. economy and the Federal Reserve (Fed). Inflation has continued to moderate and economic data has proved resilient since the Fed’s July meeting, raising hopes for a soft-landing. Meanwhile, stock markets have continued to fare much better with investor sentiment resembling the start of a new bull market. For investors, many questions remain before we can call an “all-clear” on the economic outlook, and looking beyond the cycle, more structural changes may define long-term implications for the pathway of rates, growth and inflation. In this episode, two of JP Morgan’s most prominent thought leaders sit down to tackle many of these questions.
Asset Class: ESG Investing
Thank you to Dr. David Kelly and Jennifer Wu for continued coverage of ESG and Sustainable Investing disciplines, which are topics of growing attention in the U.S. and abroad as well.
Not bad but
Not bad, listening to evaluate but Meera Pandit, Was sadly unaware of the pandemic impacts and showed some strong political bias. The snp returns Obama and Trump? Biden market up? Meets, please check your facts minus the backgrounds of the housing crisis and pandemic- subtract those two events Obama real increases are small and trumps impressive.
Also consider Biden returns if not off a difficult pandemic, his constraints on the energy suppyhave sparked a global change in energy prices. Freeze pipelines and drilling for 18 months and this is the result. In May, Biden was forced to unfreeze 860 thousand acres but changed the lease costs from 12% to 19% - that is sticking the energy market with a 7% increase for the length of those leases. Creating energy inflation for the length of those contracts. These are not minor political differences as Meera suggested but huge differences in the direction of us economy, world energy prices.
This program asked good questions but of a guest who did not understand the importance of subtracting these shocks from her data. Very much a teenage view of data, would not suggest placing retirement funds in her hands and hope the podcast better screens its guests.
Really miss just David Kelly
This series would be much better if the roles were reversed and the guest asked Dr Kelly to answer the questions. These speakers don’t compare to what we’ve come to expect from JPM and Dr Kelly’s lucid level of commentary.
