July 23 (Bloomberg) -- JPMorgan Chase & Co. named Dubravko Lakos-Bujas as the head of U.S. equity and quantitative strategy, assuming the role last held by Thomas Lee.

Lakos-Bujas has worked as a quantitative analyst focusing on global markets at JPMorgan and spent six years at Deutsche Bank AG’s asset management division, according to a statement released by the New York-based bank. Lee left earlier this year.

Lakos-Bujas will be among almost two dozen Wall Street strategists who try to predict the direction of the stock market and advise investors on which companies to buy and sell. He will continue to report to Marko Kolanovic, global head of macro derivative and systematic strategies, according to the statement from JPMorgan today.
