J.P. Morgan’s Holiday Reading List

J.P. Morgan’s Holiday Reading List

"The bank just released internally its ninth-annual holiday reading list, continuing a tradition of offering its private bank and investment-management clients a year-end roster of book suggestions. The list is focused on celebrating, giving and sharing, said Darin Oduyoye, who crafted the bank’s reading list idea and leads communications for J.P. Morgan’s asset management division.

"This year’s list of seven titles range from Jimmy Carter’s latest autobiography to the economics of matchmaking. It even includes a musical interlude: the cast recording of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.” J.P. Morgan asset management executives from Dubai, Milan, Sao Paulo and New York, among other cities, met several times – and did a lot of reading — to narrow down the list from 516 titles, Mr. Oduyoye added.

"Here’s a look at this season’s picks:
