JPMorgan Chase’s securities services business has, in the words of Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon, “transformed itself into an industry powerhouse” in recent years and much of the credit for that goes to Teresa Heitsenrether.
Under Heitsenrether, the global head of custody and fund services, the business has scored some huge wins, including beating out State Street to be custodian for more than $1 trillion in assets from BlackRock. Since the end of 2016, assets under custody have increased 24%, to $25.4 trillion.
