--Funds' objective to maintain $1.00 stable NAV remains unchanged--
NEW YORK,  Jan. 9, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- J.P. Morgan Asset Management today
announced that three of its U.S. money market funds will begin to disclose their
market-based NAVs per share (also known as Shadow NAVs) on a daily basis. This
additional disclosure will provide investors with greater transparency regarding
the Market-Based NAV's fluctuation, but will not change the funds' existing
objective to maintain  $1.00  stable NAV.   

Beginning on  January 14, 2013, the JPMorgan Prime Money Market Fund, JPMorgan
Liquid Assets Money Market Fund and the JPMorgan Current Yield Money Market Fund
will calculate their Market-Based NAVs per share to four decimals at the Funds'
close of each trading day and disclose it the following business day on its
website. J.P. Morgan plans to add Market-Based NAVs disclosure for its other
money market funds in the near future.

"Daily disclosure of market-based NAVs will help investors better understand how
day to day market movements or events can affect the value of the funds'
portfolios," said  Robert Deutsch, head of Global Liquidity at J.P. Morgan Asset
Management. "Increased NAV transparency will allow investors to better
understand the nature of money market fund risks and to make more informed
decisions regarding their investments while they continue to enjoy the benefits
that money market funds offer."

Money market funds' Market-Based NAVs per share have historically been
calculated at least weekly, and since  December 2010, have been disclosed
monthly to the SEC within Form N-MFP and made public with a 60-day lag.
