Zinger Key Points
  • IndexGPT employs AI to automate thematic index creation from news articles.
  • JPMorgan's IndexGPT signals Wall Street's embrace of AI-driven investment strategies.

A year after sparking speculation with its trademark application for “IndexGPT,” JPMorgan Chase & Co JPM reportedly revealed the product’s details.

IndexGPT is a novel suite of thematic investment baskets developed using OpenAI’s GPT-4 model. 

The tool utilizes keywords to identify companies associated with emerging themes, gleaned from news articles.

In essence, it automates the creation of thematic indexes, shifting from traditional sectors to trends like cloud computing and e-sports, tapping into Wall Street’s AI frenzy, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The launch echoes the growing interest in AI-driven investment strategies amid optimism for economic growth.

The report cited Rui Fernandes, JPMorgan’s head of markets trading structuring, who views IndexGPT as a first step in integrating AI across its index offerings.

Morgan Stanley MSGoldman Sachs Group Inc GS, and Citigroup Inc C are among those exploring AI applications.

Interest in thematic funds surged but waned due to performance and rising interest rates, with thematic ETFs seeing significant outflows last year.

IndexGPT generates more keywords than prior software, enhancing thematic representation. The tool targets institutional clients for structured products but also offers potential for trend-following strategies.

JPMorgan Chase had ~$4.1 trillion in assets and ~$337 billion in stockholders’ equity as of March-end.

JPMorgan stock has gained more than 40% in the last 12 months. Investors can gain exposure to the stock via Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund XLF and IShares U.S. Financials ETF IYF.

Price Action: JPM shares are trading lower by 0.57% at $190.57 at the last check Friday.
