As reported at the time of signing the acquisition, JP Morgan will seek to integrate Global Shares into its Asset & Wealth Management line of business, remaining headquartered in Clonakilty, Ireland. As part of the closing, Motive Industry Partner Andy Stewart will step down as Executive Chairman and Motive Partner Neil Cochrane will step down from the Board of Directors.
