Anal cover letter question

    I want to apply to J.P. Morgan Asset Management.

    In the first instance on my cover letter I will write out the above in full. However, if I want to refer to the it again, is it acceptable to shorten it to "JPMAM" or "J.P.M.A.M." or neither? On their website, I think they use JPMAM, but I'm not sure if it is appropriate for a cover letter.

    Also, is JPMAM a firm, or a division, or a department etc. (i.e. "I would like to apply to your _____").

    I think you should read this.

    If it doesn't answer your questions, don't bother applying.

    For my token TSR arse wiping, I present:

    The information on this Site is approved for issue by JPMorgan Asset Management (UK) Limited, JPMorgan Life Limited and JPMorgan Asset Management Marketing Limited (which is part of the JPMorgan Asset Management ("JPMAM") marketing group, which sells investments, life assurance and pension products). All are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

    Yes Mr. SmartyPants, but at the following link:

    http://www.jpmorgan.com/pages/jpmorgan/am/uk

    look at the box to the right. It clearly says J.P. Morgan Asset Management, not JPMorgan Asset Management.

    And this is not the only instance.

    Sorry, I didn't realise your time was so valuable.

    If you didn't have anything useful to contribute, then why post?

    And maybe you didn't realise, but correctly referring to the firm you're applying to, is usually seen as quite important.

    I'm pretty confident, NAY, SURE that you should write the same acronym that they use on their disclaimer.

    But then, what do I know.

    I would refer to them as JPMorgan, which is perfectly acceptable, and the Asset Management Division. I would start with I am applying to JPMorgan Asset Management... but wouldn't call it that throughout the letter because that would be far too long winded. Equally, the abbreviation isn't really appropriate in this sense. So when you're talking about JP, use JPMorgan, talking about the division, use Asset Management, but you don't need to say the whole thing at every point.

    While it may be a separate legal entity for errrm legal reasons, it is still a part of the JPMorgan group, and therefore I think division would be fine.

    It doesn't matter what you abbreviate it to so long as it is clear what you are referring to. If you're really worried about it, put whatever you decide to abbreviate it to in brackets after the initial mention of the name. eg.g J.P Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM)

    Hmmm...as luck has it, my flatmate happens to work for JPM Asset Management. I could ask her for some advice but guess what - I won't. Good luck big boy.

    Okay - some differing opinions.

    But yes, I didn't think JPMAM looked right either. I think I'll use "your Asset Management division".

    J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM) is a safe bet (it's what they use on their website).

    Don't ever, ever, ever use J.P.M.A.M. - that's abuse of the full stop.

    "I would like to apply to JPMAM" would do, but I would call Asset Management a division.

    please don't write "your asset management division", it makes you sound as if you write the same thing for every bank and just change the title a bit. JPMAM is fine.
