J.P. Morgan Funds announced Tuesday that its “Guide to the Markets” for the third quarter of 2011 is now available in PDF form.
According to Andrew D. Goldberg (left), executive director and market strategist on the J.P. Morgan Funds U.S. Market Strategy Team, the book is designed to be user friendly and simplify complex information.
“If it takes more than two minutes to understand a chart,” says Goldberg, “it shouldn’t be in there.”
The ultimate goal for putting together the guide, now in its eighth year, he explains, “was to help financial advisors to encourage their clients to take emotion out of the investment process and to provide an accurate perspective. There’s no commentary—just facts. It’s fundamental to our philosophy. We’re never going to be able to predict the future,” he adds, “but if you can understand exactly where you are today, you will be a more informed investor. We provide perspective, not predictions.”
