JP Morgan Asset Management has appointed David Stubbs as global market strategist in the global market insights strategy team.
Stubbs will aim to deliver market and economic insight to financial advisers and institutional investors, focusing on the UK and Europe.

He will be based in London and will report to Stephanie Flanders, chief market strategist for the UK and Europe.
Flanders says: "David's extensive analytical background and economic expertise will enhance our team's research-driven approach and we're delighted to have him on board.
"Our focus remains on cutting through the noise to help investors understand what is happening in the UK and global economy and why it matters to them and their financial future."
