J.P. Morgan Adds Form PF Capabilities to Alternatives Product Suite

08.06.2012

NEW YORK, August 6, 2012 – J.P. Morgan Worldwide Securities Services (WSS) announced today that it has added reporting capabilities for Form PF, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) new regulatory filing for registered investment advisers, to its suite of services. This new reporting capability will provide clients with access to business critical information allowing them to meet this regulatory requirement.

Form PF is designed to assist the Financial Stability Oversight Council in its assessment of systemic risk in the U.S. Financial System. The new SEC rule requires investment advisers registered with the SEC that advise one or more private funds and have at least $150 million in private fund assets under management to file Form PF with the SEC, with larger advisers required to complete more detailed reporting.

This capability will allow advisers to receive client level Form PF data, enabling them to complete the Form PF data compilation and filing using their own systems. Additionally, clients will have the option of working with a selected third-party to receive the full end-to-end-solution. Clients using this offering will be able to manage their reporting workflow and automate their Form PF processes in a scalable and auditable format.

Stephanie Miller, Global Head of Alternative Investment Services for J.P. Morgan WSS, said: “We are very pleased to be launching this new product as we are now able to provide clients with a range of options for Form PF solutions support, including investor fund level information.”

Alternative Investment Services combines J.P. Morgan’s industry leading and award winning Private Equity and Real Estate Services and Hedge Fund Services businesses, which together administer approximately $500 billion in client assets.  For more information on Alternative Investment Services, please visit www.jpmorgan.com/visit/ais.
