He replaces Katherine Roy, who departed last year to pursue other opportunities, spokeswoman Shveta Vatsia said in an email. Mr. Conrath, who starts his position on Feb. 1, will report to Daniel Oldroyd, portfolio manager and head of target date strategies for multiasset solutions.
Mr. Conrath will lead JPMAM's retirement insights team and lead the manager's retirement research agenda. He was previously head of education savings. Ms. Vatsia said that JPMAM will announce the replacement for that role in due course.
J.P. Morgan Asset Management had $2.45 trillion in assets under management as of Dec. 31.
