On Nov. 1, longtime analyst Felise Agranoff officially became comanager of JPMorgan Growth Advantage alongside veteran manager Tim Parton, who remains the strategy’s lead. Agranoff previously joined Parton as a comanager of JPMorgan Mid Cap Growth at the end of 2015. Agranoff first joined J.P. Morgan in 2004 as an analyst and has spent the past 14 years on the growth-equity team. The investment approach will likely remain unchanged. The news does not affect the fund’s Morningstar Analyst Rating of Bronze for its cheapest share classes and Neutral for its most expensive ones.
