JP Morgan AM poaches BBC's Stephanie Flanders

JP Morgan Asset Management has hired BBC News economics editor Stephanie Flanders as its chief market strategist for the UK and Europe.
In the new role, Flanders (pictured) will be tasked with providing insight into the economy and financial markets to professional investors across the UK, Europe and globally.
‘In many ways, I will be doing the same thing at JP Morgan Asset Management that I have been doing at the BBC: explaining what is happening in the UK and global economy, and why it matters. But in my new role I will have the time and resources to develop my own economic ideas, and deepen my understanding of the markets, at one of the world's most experienced financial institutions. I'll also have the new thrill, for me, of helping to grow a business. I can't wait,’ Flanders commented.
‘We’ve admired Stephanie’s ability to cut through the noise to give investors a better grasp of the world around them. Her integrity aligns with our core values, namely the priority of being a valued and credible adviser,’ added Jasper Berens, head of UK funds for JP Morgan AM.
Flanders has been the BBC's economics editor since April 2008. Prior to this, she worked as a reporter at the New York Times, a speech writer and senior adviser to US Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers during the Clinton administration, a Financial Times columnist, and an economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies and London Business School.
Flanders attended both Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and the University of Oxford, and has dated both Ed Balls and Ed Miliband.
