Dear Shareholder:

We are pleased to report that the J.P. Morgan Tax Aware U.S. Equity
Fund delivered a strong total return of 24.05% for the 12 months ended
October 31, 1999, although it did trail the Lipper Large-Cap Core Funds
Average and the S&P 500 Index.

The fund's net asset value on October 31 was $18.73 per share, increasing
from $15.19 after distributions of nearly $0.11 per share in current income
over the 12-month period.  The fund's net assets rose to $163 million on
October 31.

Included in this report is an interview with Terry E. Banet, a member of
the portfolio management team.  This interview is designed to reflect what
happened during the reporting period, as well as provide an outlook for the
months ahead.

As chairman and president of Asset Management Services, we thank you for

FUND PERFORMANCE

EXAMINING PERFORMANCE
There are several ways to evaluate a mutual fund's historical performance
record.  One approach is to look at the growth of a hypothetical investment
of $2,500.  The chart at right shows that $2,500 invested on December 31,
1996,* would have grown to $4,701 on October 31, 1999.

Another way to look at performance is to review a fund's average annual
total return.  This figure takes the fund's actual (or cumulative) return
and shows what would have happened if the fund had achieved that return by
performing at a constant rate each year.  Average annual total returns
represent the average yearly change of a fund's value over various time
periods, typically one, five, or ten years (or since inception).  Total
returns for periods of less than one year are not annualized and provide a
picture of how a fund has performed over the short term.

PORTFOLIO MANAGER Q&A

[PHOTO]

Following is an interview with Terry E. Banet, vice president, a member of
the portfolio management team of the J.P. Morgan Tax Aware U.S. Equity Fund.
Since joining Morgan in 1985, Terry has done extensive work in product
development for the firm's U.S. and international clients. She was key in
helping to develop Morgan's tax-aware equity management process. A member of
Morgan's Equity and Balanced Accounts Group, Terry earned an undergraduate
degree in accounting from Lehigh University and an M.B.A. from Wharton. This
interview was conducted on November 15, 1999, and reflects her views on that
date.

THE FUND HAS ACHIEVED A STRONG ABSOLUTE  PERFORMANCE  THIS YEAR. WILL THERE
BE A CAPITAL GAINS DISTRIBUTION?

TB: This year once again we do not expect a capital gains distribution in
1999. The market was volatile this year, and a lot of individual stocks moved
in big ways both up and down. Where we had losses, we used them to offset
gains.  During the year, we took more losses than gains, so there should not
be a capital gains distribution.  This will be the third year in a row -
since the fund's inception - that we do not expect a capital gains
distribution.  That's good news for those who pay personal income taxes.

WHAT DROVE THE FUND'S STRONG RETURN THIS YEAR?

TB: Our equity investment process relies heavily on stock selection.  We do
not make large sector or theme bets in the fund.  During the year, we've had
some outstanding stock holdings in the technology sector.  Even though
technology was the best performing sector in the market, the stocks we picked
outperformed the sector.  These included Sun Microsystems, which was up 263%,
Texas Instruments, which gained 181%, Cisco, which climbed 134%, and EMC,
which advanced 127%.  We held overweights in all four, and the largest was in
Sun.

Three of the four performed well because they benefited from their own
strong growth and the increased valuations of Internet stocks.  Sun, EMC and
Cisco provide the infrastructure - the nuts and bolts - of the Internet.
Texas Instruments makes DSPs, or digital signal processors, which are used
extensively in many technologies.

THIS HAS BEEN AN EXCEPTIONAL TIME FOR TECHNOLOGY STOCKS, HASN'T IT?

TB: Our holdings have capitalized on the Internet boom because we own the
companies that make it work.  Sun Microsystems, Cisco, and EMC Corp. provide
network capacity, data storage and Internet connectivity and infrastructure.
Sun Microsystems and Cisco produce servers that are crucial for high-end uses
such as the Internet, while EMC is the leading producer of hardware and
software for storage systems.

                                                                            3

<PAGE>


DESPITE THE FUND'S STRONG ABSOLUTE RETURN, IT DID TRAIL THE AVERAGES. WHY?

TB: The stocks that have hurt us, contributing most of the lagging
performance, were Service Corp., Waste Management, and Mattel, all of which
we've sold.  We have no plans to repurchase them.  All had earnings that were
far below analysts' expectations.  The fundamentals of these companies don't
warrant repurchase.

ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTING FACTOR?

TB: The fund also held an underweighted position in General Electric, and it
outperformed the market.

ANY NEW AND NOTEWORTHY ADDITIONS TO THE PORTFOLIO THIS YEAR?

TB: Exodus Communications is a leading provider of Internet system, network
management solutions and technology professional services for enterprises
with mission-critical Internet operations.  Exodus manages Internet web sites
and its network infrastructure from 15 Internet Data Centers located in the
United States and Europe.

TYCO HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS LATELY. HOW HAS THAT AFFECTED THE PORTFOLIO?

TB:  Early in the year, Tyco was a positive performer.  Then a few newspaper
articles questioned some if its accounting practices, leading its price to
decline.  We believe the company has adequately addressed the issues raised.
We believe its prospects are strong and we still have a position.

ANY OTHER HOLDINGS OUTSIDE THE TECHNOLOGY SECTOR THAT WERE PARTICULARLY HELPFUL?

TB:  We had a strong performance from Mobil, particularly after the
announcement of the merger with Exxon and also because of the recovery in oil
prices.  The combination of Mobil and Exxon brings two strong managements
together.  We believe the combined company is an attractive holding in this
sector.

Another long-time holding, PE Corp. (formerly Perkin Elmer), is a leader in
technology and reagents that support the biotechnology industry, which is a
growth area in health care.

WHAT IS YOUR OUTLOOK?

TB: We continue to look for the best individual stocks.  The market has
penalized companies that haven't met their earnings expectations, or have
revised their earnings expectations downward.  So we look at these situations
very carefully in our search for opportunities.

The market will continue to focus on a likely Fed tightening, Y2K issues, and
profit pressures on corporate America.  Longer term, a resurgence in global
economic growth will allow a broader group of companies to report earnings
improvements.  Our broadly diversified portfolio, driven by a disciplined
research investment process, is well positioned.

J.P. MORGAN TAX AWARE U.S. EQUITY FUND
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
OCTOBER 31, 1999
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. ORGANIZATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

J.P. Morgan Tax Aware U.S. Equity Fund (the "fund") is a series of J.P. Morgan
Series Trust, a Massachusetts business trust (the "trust"). The trust, which was
organized on August 15, 1996, is registered under the Investment Company Act of
1940, as amended. The fund is a no-load and diversified, open-end management
investment company. The fund's investment objective is to provide high after-tax
total return from a portfolio of selected equity securities. The trustees of the
trust have divided the beneficial interests in the fund into two classes of
shares, Institutional Shares and Select Shares. Currently the fund only offers
Select Shares. The fund commenced operations on December 18, 1996. The
Declaration of Trust permits the trustees to issue an unlimited number of shares
in the fund.

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that
affect the reported amounts and disclosures. Actual amounts could differ from
those estimates. The following is a summary of the significant accounting
policies of the fund:

   a) The fund values securities that are listed on an exchange using prices
      supplied daily by an independent pricing service that are based on the
      last traded price on a national securities exchange or in the absence of
      recorded trades, at the readily available mean of the bid and asked prices
      on such exchange, if such exchange or market constitutes the broadest and
      most representative market for the security. Securities listed on a
      foreign exchange are valued at the last traded price or in the absence of
      recorded trades, at the readily available mean of the bid and asked prices
      on such exchange available before the time when net assets are valued.
      Independent pricing service procedures may also include the use of prices
      based on yields or prices of securities of comparable quality, coupon,
      maturity and type, indications as to values from dealers, operating data,
      and general market conditions. Unlisted securities are valued at the
      average of the quoted bid and asked prices in the over-the-counter market
      provided by a principal market maker or dealer. If prices are not supplied
      by the fund's independent pricing service or principal market maker or
      dealer, such securities are priced using fair values in accordance with
      procedures adopted by the fund's trustees. All short-term securities with
      a remaining maturity of sixty days or less are valued using the amortized
      cost method.

   b) Securities transactions are recorded on a trade date basis. Dividend
      income is recorded on the ex-dividend date or as of the time that the
      relevant ex-dividend date and amount becomes known. Interest income, which
      includes the amortization of premiums and discounts, if any, is recorded
      on an accrual basis. For financial and tax reporting purposes, realized
      gains and losses are determined on the basis of specific lot
      identification.

   c) Substantially all the fund's net investment income is declared as
      dividends and paid quarterly. Distributions to shareholders of net
      realized capital gains, if any, are declared and paid annually.

   d) The fund incurred organization expenses in the amount of $47,567. Morgan
      Guaranty Trust Company of New York ("Morgan"), a wholly owned subsidiary
      of J.P. Morgan & Co. Incorporated ("J.P. Morgan"), has paid the
      organization expenses of the fund. The fund has agreed to reimburse Morgan
      for these costs which are being deferred and amortized on a straight-line
      basis over a period not to exceed five years beginning with the
      commencement of operations of the fund.

                                                                              15

J.P. MORGAN TAX AWARE U.S. EQUITY FUND
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED)
OCTOBER 31, 1999
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   e) The fund intends to comply with the provisions of the Internal Revenue
      Code of 1986, as amended, applicable to regulated investment companies and
      to distribute substantially all of its income, including net realized
      capital gains, if any, within the prescribed time periods. Accordingly, no
      provision for federal income or excise tax is necessary.

   f) The fund accounts for and reports distributions to shareholders in
      accordance with Statement of Position 93-2 "Determination, Disclosure, and
      Financial Statement Presentation of Income, Capital Gains, and Return of
      Capital Distributions by Investment Companies." The effect of applying
      this statement was to increase Paid-in Capital by $5,904,188 and decrease
      Accumulated Net Realized Gain on Investment by $5,904,188. Net investment
      income, net realized gains and net assets were not affected by this
      change. This reclassification is the result of gains on securities
      redeemed in-kind that were treated as realized gains for financial
      statement purposes but which were not recognized for tax purposes.

   g) For federal income tax purposes, the fund had a capital loss carryforward
      of $5,184,197 at October 31, 1999, of which $81,365 will expire in the
      year 2005, $498,314 will expire in the year 2006, and $4,604,518 will
      expire in the year 2007. To the extent that this capital loss is used to
      offset future capital gains, it is probable that the gains so offset will
      not be distributed to shareholders.

2. TRANSACTIONS WITH AFFILIATES

   a) The fund has an Investment Advisory Agreement with J.P. Morgan Investment
      Management Inc. ("JPMIM"), an affiliate of Morgan and a wholly owned
      subsidiary of J.P. Morgan. Under the terms of the agreement, the fund pays
      JPMIM at an annual rate of 0.45% of the fund's average daily net assets.
      For the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, such fees amounted to
      $554,907.

   b) The trust, on behalf of the fund, has retained Funds Distributor, Inc.
      ("FDI"), a registered broker-dealer, to serve as the co-administrator and
      distributor for the fund. Under a Co-Administration Agreement between FDI
      and the trust on behalf of the fund, FDI provides administrative services
      necessary for the operations of the fund, furnishes office space and
      facilities required for conducting the business of the fund and pays the
      compensation of the fund's officers affiliated with FDI. The fund has
      agreed to pay FDI fees equal to its allocable share of an annual
      complex-wide charge of $425,000 plus FDI's out-of-pocket expenses. The
      amount allocable to the fund is based on the ratio of the fund's net
      assets to the aggregate net assets of the trust and certain other
      investment companies subject to similar agreements with FDI. For the
      fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, the fee for these services amounted to
      $1,108.

   c) The trust, on behalf of the fund, has an Administrative Services Agreement
      (the "Services Agreement") with Morgan under which Morgan is responsible
      for certain aspects of the administration and operation of the fund. Under
      the Services Agreement, the fund has agreed to pay Morgan a fee equal to
      its allocable share of an annual complex-wide charge. This charge is
      calculated based on the aggregate average daily net assets of the trust
      and certain other registered investment companies for which JPMIM acts as
      investment advisor in accordance with the following annual schedule: 0.09%
      on the first $7 billion of their aggregate average daily net assets and
      0.04% of their aggregate average daily net assets in

16

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED)
OCTOBER 31, 1999
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      excess of $7 billion less the complex-wide fees payable to FDI. The
      portion of this charge payable by the fund is determined by the
      proportionate share that its net assets bear to the net assets of the
      trust and certain other investment companies for which Morgan provides
      similar services. For the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, the fee for
      these services amounted to $63,722.

      In addition, J.P. Morgan has agreed to reimburse the fund to the extent
      necessary to maintain the total operating expenses of the fund at no more
      than 0.85% of the average daily net assets of the fund through
      September 30, 2000. For the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, J.P.
      Morgan has agreed to reimburse the fund $67,977 for expenses under this
      agreement.

   d) The trust, on behalf of the fund, has a Shareholder Servicing Agreement
      with Morgan to provide account administration and personal account
      maintenance service to fund shareholders. The agreement provides for the
      fund to pay Morgan a fee for these services which is computed daily and
      paid monthly at an annual rate of 0.25% of the average daily net assets of
      the fund. For the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, the fee for these
      services amounted to $308,281.

      Morgan, Charles Schwab & Co. ("Schwab") and the trust are parties to
      separate services and operating agreements (the "Schwab Agreements")
      whereby Schwab makes fund shares available to customers of investment
      advisors and other financial intermediaries who are Schwab's clients. The
      fund is not responsible for payments to Schwab under the Schwab
      Agreements; however, in the event the services agreement with Schwab is
      terminated for reasons other than a breach by Schwab and the relationship
      between the trust and Morgan is terminated, the fund would be responsible
      for the ongoing payments to Schwab with respect to pre-termination shares.

   e) The trust, on behalf of the fund, has a Fund Services Agreement with
      Pierpont Group, Inc. ("Group") to assist the trustees in exercising their
      overall supervisory responsibilities for the trust's affairs. The trustees
      of the trust represent all the existing shareholders of Group. The fund's
      allocated portion of Group's costs in performing its services amounted to
      $2,425 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999.

   f) An aggregate annual fee of $75,000 is paid to each trustee for serving as
      a trustee of the trust, the J.P. Morgan Funds, the J.P. Morgan
      Institutional Funds, and other registered investment companies in which
      they invest. The Trustees' Fees and Expenses shown in the financial
      statements represents the fund's allocated portion of the total fees and
      expenses. The trust's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer also serves as
      Chairman of Group and receives compensation and employee benefits from
      Group in his role as Group's Chairman. The allocated portion of such
      compensation and benefits included in the Fund Services Fee shown in the
      financial statements was $500.

                                                                              17

5. CREDIT AGREEMENT

The trust, on behalf of the fund, together with other affiliated investment
companies (the "funds"), entered into a revolving line of credit agreement (the
"Agreement") on May 27, 1998, with unaffiliated lenders. The maximum borrowing
under the Agreement was $150,000,000. The Agreement expired on May 26, 1999,
however, the fund as party to the Agreement has extended the Agreement and
continues its participation therein for an additional 364 days until May 23,
2000. The maximum borrowing under the new Agreement is $150,000,000. The purpose
of the Agreement is to provide another alternative for settling large fund
shareholder redemptions. Interest on any such borrowings outstanding will
approximate market rates. Prior to May 26, 1999 the funds paid a commitment fee
at an annual rate of 0.065% on the unused portion of the committed amount; under
the current Agreement, the commitment fee has increased to an annual rate of
0.085% on the unused portion of the committed amount. The commitment fee is
allocated to the funds in accordance with the procedures established by their
respective trustees or directors. There were no outstanding borrowings pursuant
to the Agreement at October 31, 1999.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS

To the Trustees and Shareholders of
J.P. Morgan Tax Aware U.S. Equity Fund

In our opinion, the accompanying statement of assets and liabilities, including
the schedule of investments, and the related statements of operations and of
changes in net assets and the financial highlights present fairly, in all
material respects, the financial position of  J.P. Morgan Tax Aware U.S. Equity
Fund (one of the funds comprising  JPM Series Trust, hereafter referred to as
the "fund") at October 31, 1999, the results of its operations for the year then
ended, the changes in its net assets for each of the two years in the period
then ended and the financial highlights for each of the two years in the period
then ended and for the period December 18, 1996 (commencement of operations)
through October 31, 1997, in conformity with generally accepted accounting
principles. These financial statements and financial highlights (hereafter
referred to as "financial statements") are the responsibility of the fund's
management; our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial
statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits of these financial
statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, which
require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about
whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit
includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles
used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall
financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits, which included
confirmation of securities at October 31, 1999 by correspondence with the
custodian and brokers, provide a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed
above.
