JPMorgan Kicks off Ninth Annual Asian Equity Conference
New York, United States

JPMorgan today begins its ninth annual Asia-Pacific Equity Conference in New York, which will run through October 6, 2004. Over 125 companies from 12 Asia-Pacific countries will meet with more than 600 investors. The conference aims to bring leading companies from Asia-Pacific together with portfolio managers based in North America.

"The biggest risk to a global equity portfolio in 2005 is underestimating the upside potential of Asian equities," said Adrian Mowat, JPMorgan's Chief Asian Equity Strategist, ahead of the conference. "We believe Asian currencies, property, and equity markets are undervalued."

This year's event will feature "The Great China vs. India Debate" conducted by JPMorgan's regional strategists, who will outline the investment benefits of both countries. The event will also include strategy sessions on emerging markets and Greater China, as well as a session on various investment opportunities in the ASEAN economic block. Also, instant polling will be new to the conference this year, enabling attendees to provide immediate feedback on investment sentiments throughout the week.

JPMorgan also has attracted nearly 20 companies from emerging markets in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and South Africa, participating in the event for the first time.
