Investing in equities

Stocks are the growth engines of your portfolio. The investment opportunities you’re after could lie anywhere. That’s why J.P. Morgan Private Bank takes you to every corner of the global markets. Whether you’re investing in a single company’s stock or creating a portfolio of diversified equities. And it’s why our clients trust our investment advice. And trust us to handle over $150 billion in stock transactions and more than 2 million trade orders every year.*

Strategy and execution are two sides of the same coin

To invest with vision, you need a high-conviction market perspective. We develop ours by distilling information from our teams of strategists, economists, trading and derivatives professionals worldwide. And once we do, we work with you to decide which ideas are right for you. And offer comprehensive trading capabilities to put them to work in your portfolio.

Our strategists look for the most compelling equity investment opportunities in the global markets, using insights formulated from our economists and industry-wide, institutional research. And we look at these market trends through the lens of clients like you.

Our priority is finding the best way to trade for you. Our traders are not required to execute through J.P. Morgan if third-party brokers can do it more efficiently and at better cost. You also get direct market access and state-of-the art tools and technology. We work to meet your needs—including but not limited to:

  • If you need help hedging risks and managing exposure levels in your stock portfolio, we offer strategy and execution services for structured notes, listed options, and over-the-counter derivatives.
  • If you are a business owner or a corporate executive with company stock, we can help you navigate regulations and develop an effective wealth transfer strategy—including executing and monitoring a 10b5-1 plan.


We have decades of experience and a global footprint. But we deliver our strategy and execution intelligence one-on-one—to help fulfill your individual investment goals.
