CEO, Investment Management Americas
JPMorgan has yet to pick Guernsey's successor.
"We will be naming a replacement perhaps within the next couple of months," Sedarat said.
Guernsey, who is in her mid-50s, has been with JPMorgan since 1977. She has played a key role in developing the bank's proprietary U.S. mutual fund business.
Asked why she decided to retire, Guernsey, through a spokesperson, replied: "There is never a perfect time to retire but now is a good time with the business in fantastic shape."
Guernsey spent the first 15 years of her JPMorgan career at the firm's
private bank, working with high net worth individuals and family groups.
Then from 1992 to 1996, she led JPMorgan's U.S. proprietary fund business.
In October 2002, Guernsey was appointed CEO of JPMorgan Investment Management Americas, overseeing the retail, institutional and retirement plan
