James Darmody, CFA is a vice president within asset management at J.P. Morgan, focusing on hedge fund research within healthcare, emerging markets, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Having been with the company since 2011, he is a graduate of Stanford University, where he studied economics and political science.

Outside of work, James’ interests include music, hiking, and green technology to combat climate change. You can find him spending some quality time at the New York Philharmonic, or hiking off-trail, trying to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
A second-generation Irish American, James says, “my Irish heritage was learned largely through my grandfather, who grew up a farmer in Tipperary. Humble, hardworking, and gracious, he taught his children and grandchildren what it meant to be Irish through his example everyday.”
