The FTSE 100 is called to open 8 points higher at 7424. Asian stocks advanced on optimism that the U.S. and China will declare another truce in their trade war at a presidential meeting on Saturday. The yen extended losses after the biggest drop since April. Equity benchmarks in Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong saw gains of almost 1%, and U.S. stock futures also climbed after reports that the current plan is for the U.S. to hold fire on hiking tariffs on another swathe of Chinese imports.

At its recent Annual General Meeting, JP Morgan American Trust voted to approve changes to its investment process. The trust will move towards a more concentrated, active approach, and ultimately a somewhat higher risk approach. This is part of a wider trend we are seeing across active management; fund and trust managers are increasingly moving towards higher conviction portfolios in an effort to differentiate themselves from passive offerings.
