(CIFM), in which it holds a 49% stake, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said. Advertisement 2 Article content The approval came more than two years after the U.S. bank had applied to buy out CIFM, in 2020. JPMorgan Asset Management (JPMAM) said that CIFM, which overseas client assets of roughly 170 billion yuan ($25.10 billion), would be integrated into its global operating model. “Our strategic goal is to significantly grow JPMAM China to become the leading foreign asset manager in China and contribute to JPMAM becoming the leading manager of China assets to global investors,” Dan Watkins, its Asia Pacific chief executive officer, said in a statement. “Symbolically it’s very important, given both the size of the deal, and also the fact that China is meant to be one of JPMorgan’s primary growth engines moving forward,” said Peter Alexander, managing director of fund consultancy Z-Ben Advisors, which estimates the deal to be worth about $1 billion.

Chinese regulators and government officials were preoccupied with the zero-COVID policy in 2022, and preparation for October’s 20th Communist Party Congress, but approvals granted to foreign institutions have recently picked up pace, Z-Ben’s Alexander said. The CSRC gave a green light to Schroders on Jan. 13, allowing the British asset manager to expand its footprint in China by setting up a mutual fund unit. Canada’s Manulife Financial Corp in November received regulatory approval to take full control of its Chinese mutual fund venture. The same month, U.S. asset manager Neuberger Berman won approval to set up a fund unit in China. JPMorgan said that CIFM would be operating under the JPMAM brand and its China private fund unit would also be integrated into JPMAM China as it consolidates onshore operations. Watkins said that integrating CIFM’s domestic expertise with JPMorgan’s resources and global scale “creates powerful momentum.” ($1 = 6.7738 Chinese yuan renminbi) (Reporting by Shanghai and Beijing newsroom; editing by Jan Harvey, Jason Neely and Jane Merriman)
