LETTER TO THE SHAREHOLDERS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December 1, 2000

Dear Shareholder,

    The J.P. Morgan Global 50 Fund had a total return of 4.64% for the year
ended October 31, 2000. The Fund outperformed its benchmark - the MSCI World
Index--which returned 1.09% for  the same time period, but underperformed its
peer group--the Lipper Global Funds Average--which returned 10.26%.

    The Fund's net asset value on October 31, 2000 was $18.37 per share,
increasing from $18.06 per share since the start of the year. During the year,
the Fund distributed $0.22 per share from ordinary income, $0.36 per share from
short-term capital gains and $0.0017 from long-term capital gains. The Fund's
net assets were approximately $158 million  on October 31, 2000.

    This report includes an interview with Shawn Lytle, the lead portfolio
manager of Global 50 Fund. Shawn discusses the global equity markets in detail,
and explains the factors that influenced fund performance during the fiscal
period. Shawn also provides insight in regard to positioning the Fund  for the
coming months.

    As chairman and president of Asset Management Services, we thank you for
investing with J.P. Morgan. Should you have any comments or questions, please

FUND PERFORMANCE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXAMINING PERFORMANCE

  There are several ways to evaluate a mutual fund's historical performance.
One way is to look at the growth of a hypothetical investment. The chart at
right shows that $10,000 invested on May 31, 1998,* would have increased to
$12,599 on October 31, 2000.

  Another way is to review a fund's average annual total return. This
calculation takes the Fund's actual 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).

* The Fund commenced operations on May 29, 1998, and has provided an average
annual total return of 10.00% from that date through October 31, 2000. For the
purpose of comparison, the "since inception" returns are calculated from May 31,
1998, the first date when data for the Fund's benchmark and its Lipper category
average were available.

   MSCI World Index is an unmanaged, market value-weighted performance average
of 1460 securities listed on the stock exchanges of 23 countries.  It does not
include fees or operation expenses and is not available for actual investment.

   Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Fund returns are net of
fees, assume the reinvestment of distributions and reflect reimbursement  of
certain fund expenses as described in the prospectus. Had expenses not been
subsidized, returns would have been lower. Lipper Analytical Services, Inc. is a
leading source of mutual fund data.

PORTFOLIO MANAGER Q&A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[photo of Shawn Lytle]

    The following is an interview  with SHAWN LYTLE, vice president and
portfolio manager with J.P. Morgan's Global Micro Group in London. Shawn has
been a J.P. Morgan Investment Management employee since 1992, and was previously
responsible for new business development for independent U.S. money managers.
Since joining Morgan, he has attended the analyst training program and served a
brief tour in J.P. Morgan Investment's San Francisco Private Banking office.
Shawn holds a B.A. in business administration from Georgetown University.

WHAT DETERMINED THE DYNAMICS AND PERFORMANCE OF GLOBAL MARKETS OVER THE PAST
YEAR?

    The dynamics of the market can only be described as volatile, which was
either very sweet or very sour depending on how your investments were positioned
throughout  the year.

    During the first four months of this reporting period, November 1999 through
February 2000, for example, the technology-media-telecommunications (TMT)
sectors were the undisputed heavy weights of the world. Owing largely  to
investor enthusiasm for these sectors, the technology-heavy Nasdaq soared,
significantly outperforming just about every other major equity index.

    Towards the beginning of March, however, the hammer fell on TMT issues, as
investors finally re-evaluated the valuations and growth potential of these
stocks in what was shaping up to be a slowing U.S. and global economy. Many TMT
issues suffered declines of more than 50%, particularly in the dot.com area, as
investors fled in favor of slower growing, but more stable sectors, such as
pharmaceuticals, consumer non-durables, and utilities. This shift benefited
value investors who had previously taken advantage  of depressed prices in what
were perceived as "old economy" sectors.

    Since the summer months, we continued to experience extreme volatility
month-to-month, with no clear pattern  to it. In some months growth prevailed.
In others, value.  In all, it was a very difficult market to get a handle on.

HOW DID THE FUND PERFORM OVER THIS PERIOD?

    We did not perform as well as we would have liked, relative to the
competition. This was largely the result of our maintaining a neutral weighting
in the TMT sectors during their period of substantial outperformance. This
limited our exposure to the volatility of these sectors, but it also limited the
gains we were able to achieve during their run-up. Other funds, especially
growth funds, bet heavily on TMT when  it was hot in the early stages, and got
out before it cooled completely. This led to their outperformance over the past
12 months.

    We felt that was a dangerous game to play. We pursue overweight positions in
sectors when there is an attractive valuation with growth to be captured, but
won't take them just to pursue the latest, greatest momentum play. To do so
would create more volatility than returns in the long run.

WHAT STOCKS NOTABLY HELPED PERFORMANCE?

    Pharmacia Corporation was one. It was the beneficiary  of a very smart
merger with Monsanto, which we previously held in the portfolio. As a merged
entity, it has very strong margin expansion prospects going forward, and most
observers, including J.P. Morgan, are predicting greater than 20%
earnings-per-share growth over the next three years.

    In the global media sector, News Corp. has some of the most valuable global
media assets (Fox, UK newspapers,  Asian Satellites), which are more valuable
than those held  by Disney, Viacom, or Time-Warner. During 2000, the market
began to realize this value, and the company's stock price appreciated
accordingly.

    Elsewhere, in the consumer non-durables area, Nestle  performed well as
investors began to see some of the rewards of a multi-year restructuring program
that rationalized and consolidated the company's brands. By improving efficiency
and cutting costs, Nestle is achieving sales growth that is well above industry
averages and a bottom line that is growing even faster. This stock has
outperformed the global sector  and the overall market this year.


                                                                             3

PORTFOLIO MANAGER Q&A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                    (Continued)

HOW ABOUT THOSE THAT DID LESS WELL?

    WorldCom, the world's top data communications provider, among other things,
was very disappointing. It did not participate in the TMT market run of 1999's
fourth quarter. This resulted in investors not having a cushion to rely on when
slower earnings-per-share growth and a failed merger with Sprint sent its stock
tumbling by more than 50% over the course of the year. This is not to say that
WorldCom is unhealthy, just that it is not growing as fast as in the past. As a
result, we sold our holdings of WorldCom  in the third quarter of 2000.

    Another disappointment was Level 3 Communications,  a provider of fiber
optic broadband networks to communication companies. It is a strong company,
with an excellent business plan and bright prospects, but unfortunately, it fell
victim to the general sell-off in telecoms. Based on our faith in Level 3
Communications' future, we are continuing to  buy more, however, it lowered the
Fund's performance during the fiscal period.

    In the semiconductor sector, Hyundai Electronics was  hit by slowing PC
sales worldwide and concerns about technology companies in general. We think it
was, and  is, one of the best values in the sector. But, unfortunately,  it
continued to sell at low multiples, relative to its U.S.  or European peers,
through much of this reporting period.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL MOVE THE MARKETS IN THE  MONTHS AHEAD?

    Investors have questioned some of the valuations for technology stocks, and
we think they have come closer  to appreciating the true worth of their
holdings, rather than the speculative value placed upon them a few quarters'
ago. Hopefully, as expectations moderate, we will not see the wild swings we
have experienced lately.

    Unfortunately, we anticipate there will be continued monthly sector rotation
as investors seek their bearings and try to get a better sense of where interest
rates, earnings,  and global growth are heading. If investors believe that a
soft landing can be achieved, it will undoubtedly lead to more stable markets.

    Until early 2001, sector rotation will be driven by day-to-day news about
earnings and the economy. Therefore, market volatility is likely to remain high

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, WOULD BE DEFINITIVE SIGNS  OF MARKET STABILITY?

    If we were to see an interest rate cut, it would lighten the hearts of even
the most cynical investor. Such a move would strongly indicate that inflation
has been contained, and  that growth can continue in a low inflation
environment. Stabilization in forward earnings estimates for companies would
help, as would stabilization in oil prices.

HOW ARE YOU POSITIONING FOR THE QUARTER GOING FORWARD?

    In light of our outlook on market volatility, we are becoming more defensive
in the Fund. To achieve the risk/reward profile we desire, we are emphasizing
high quality companies with stable, predictable growth patterns and proven
records in delivering earnings growth over time. Several such companies are to
be found in the pharmaceutical and consumer non-durables sectors. At the same
time, we are generally avoiding commitments to higher growth companies whose
valuations continue to be stretched. Many such companies still reside in the
technology sector, despite the sector's heavy losses this year.

J.P. MORGAN GLOBAL 50 FUND
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OCTOBER 31, 2000
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

    ORGANIZATION--The J.P. Morgan Global 50 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, as a no-load, diversified, open-end
management investment company. The Fund's investment objective is to provide
high total return from a concentrated portfolio of global 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 May 29, 1998.
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 accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States of America 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:

    SECURITY VALUATIONS--Securities traded on principal securities exchanges are
valued at the last reported sales price, or mean of the latest bid and asked
prices when  no last sales price is available. Securities traded
over-the-counter and certain foreign securities are valued at the quoted bid
price from a market maker or dealer. When  valuations are not readily available,
securities are valued  at fair value as determined in accordance with procedures
adopted by the Trustees. All short-term securities with  a remaining maturity of
sixty days or less are valued using the amortized cost method.

    Trading in securities on most foreign exchanges and over-the-counter markets
is normally completed before  the close of the domestic market and may also take
place on days when the domestic market is closed. If events materially affecting
the value of foreign securities occur between the time when the exchange on
which they are traded closes and the time when the Fund's net assets are
calculated, such securities will be valued at fair value  in accordance with
procedures adopted by the Trustees.

    SECURITY TRANSACTIONS--Security transactions are accounted for as of the
trade date. Realized gains and losses are determined on the identified cost
basis, which is also used for federal income tax purposes.

    INVESTMENT INCOME--Dividend income less foreign taxes withheld, if any, is
recorded on the ex-dividend date or at the time that the relevant ex-dividend
and amount becomes known. Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis and
includes accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums. Net investment
income, excluding shareholder servicing fees, and realized and unrealized gains
and losses are allocated daily to each class of shares based upon the relative
proportion of net assets of each class at the beginning of each day.

    ORGANIZATION EXPENSES--The Fund incurred organization expenses in the amount
of $20,000, which have been deferred and are being amortized on a straight-line
basis over a period not to exceed five years beginning with the commencement of
operations of the Fund.

    FUTURES CONTRACTS--The Fund may enter into futures contracts in order to
hedge existing portfolio securities, or securities the Fund intends to purchase,
against fluctuations in value caused by changes in prevailing market interest
rates or securities movements and to manage exposure  to changing interest rates
and securities prices. The risks  of entering into futures contracts include the
possibility  that the change in value of the contract may not correlate with the
changes in value of the underlying securities. Upon entering into a futures
contract, the Fund is required to deposit either cash or securities in an amount
equal to  a certain percentage of the contract value (initial margin).
Subsequent payments (variation margin) are made or received daily, in cash, by
the Fund. The variation margin  is equal to the daily change in the contract
value and is recorded as unrealized gain or loss. The Fund will recognize a gain
or loss when the contract is closed or expires.

    FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSACTIONS--All assets and  liabilities initially
expressed in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollars at prevailing
exchange rates at period end. Purchases and sales of investment securities,
dividend and interest income, and certain expenses are translated at the rates
of exchange prevailing on the respective dates of such transactions. Realized
and unrealized gains and losses from foreign currency translations arise from
changes in currency exchange rates and are reported in the Statement of
Operations.

    Although the net assets of the Fund are presented  at the exchange rates and
market values prevailing at the end of the period, the Fund does not isolate the
portion  of the results of operations arising from changes in foreign exchange
rates from the fluctuations arising from changes in the market prices of
securities during the period.

    FORWARD FOREIGN CURRENCY EXCHANGE CONTRACTS--The Fund may enter into forward
foreign currency exchange contracts to facilitate transactions  of securities
denominated in a foreign currency or to manage the Fund's exposure to foreign
currency exchange fluctuations. The net U.S. dollar value of foreign currency
underlying all contractual commitments held by the Fund and the resulting
unrealized appreciation or depreciation are determined daily using prevailing
exchange rates.  The Fund bears the risk of an unfavorable change in the

foreign currency exchange rate underlying the forward contract.
Additionally, losses may arise if the counterparties do not perform under the
contract terms.

    INCOME TAX STATUS--It is the Fund's policy to  distribute all net investment
income and net realized gains to shareholders and to otherwise qualify as a
regulated investment company under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.
Accordingly, no provision has been made for federal or state income taxes.

    FOREIGN TAXES--The Fund may be subject to foreign taxes on income, gains on
investments or currency repatriation, a portion of which may be recoverable. The
Fund will accrue such taxes and recoveries as applicable, based upon their
current interpretation of tax rules and regulations that exist in the markets in
which they invest.

    DISTRIBUTIONS TO SHAREHOLDERS--Distributions  to a shareholder are recorded
on the ex-dividend date. Distributions from net investment income and
distributions from net realized gains, if any, are declared and paid annually.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. TRANSACTIONS WITH AFFILIATES

    ADVISORY--The Trust, on behalf of the Fund, has  an Investment Advisory
Agreement with J.P. Morgan Investment Management Inc. ("JPMIM"), an affiliate
of Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York ("Morgan") and a wholly owned
subsidiary of J.P. Morgan & Co. Incorporated ("J.P. Morgan"). Under the terms
of the agreement, the Fund pays JPMIM at an annual  rate of 1.25% of the Fund's
average daily net assets.

    ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES--The Trust 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 Trust 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 excess of $7 billion less the complex-wide fees payable to
Funds Distributor, Inc. 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.

    Morgan has agreed to reimburse the Fund to the extent necessary to maintain
the total operating expenses (which excludes interest and dividend expenses,
taxes and extraordinary items) of the Select Shares at no more than 1.50% of the
average daily net assets of the Fund. This reimbursement arrangement can be
changed or terminated at any time after February 28, 2001 at the option of
Morgan.

    ADMINISTRATION--The Trust 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, 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  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 FDI provides similar services.

    SHAREHOLDER SERVICING--The Trust has a Shareholder Servicing Agreement with
Morgan under which Morgan provides account administration and personal account
maintenance service to Fund shareholders. The agreement provides for the Fund to
pay Morgan a fee for these services that is computed daily and paid monthly at
an annual rate of 0.25% of the average daily net assets of the Select Shares.

    Morgan, Charles Schwab & Co. ("Schwab") and the Trust are parties to
separate services and operating agreements (the "Schwab Agreements") whereby
Schwab makes Select 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 Select Shares.

    FUND SERVICES--The Trust has a Fund Services Agreement with Pierpont Group,
Inc. ("PGI") to assist the Trustees in exercising their overall supervisory
responsibilities for the Trust's affairs. The Trustees of the Fund represent
all the existing shareholders of PGI.


                                                                           13

OCTOBER 31, 2000
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. TRANSACTIONS WITH AFFILIATES (CONTINUED)

    Each Trustee receives an aggregate annual fee of $75,000 for serving on the
boards 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 represent the Fund's
allocated portion of the total Trustees' fees and expenses. The Trust's Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer also serves as Chairman of PGI and receives
compensation and employee benefits from PGI. The allocated portion of such
compensation and benefits included in the Fund Services Fee shown on the
Statement of Operations was $200.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

    As of October 31, 2000, accumulated net unrealized appreciation was
$807,591, based on the aggregate  cost of investments for federal income tax
purposes of $154,072,721, which consisted of unrealized appreciation  of
$13,668,832 and unrealized depreciation of $12,861,241.

    Income distributions and capital gain distributions,  if any, are determined
in accordance with income tax  regulations which may differ from generally
accepted accounting principles. These differences are primarily  due to the
differing treatment of foreign currency and  tax allocation. Accordingly, these
permanent differences  in the character of income and distributions between
financials statements and tax basis have been reclassified to paid-in-capital.
During the year ended October 31, 2000, the following reclassifications were
made: Increase Undistributed Net Investment Income by $724,749, decrease
Accumulated Net Realized Gain by $743,598  and decrease Paid-in Capital by
$18,849. The adjustments are primarily attributable to foreign currency losses.
Net Investment Income, Net Realized Gains, and Net Assets were not affected by
this change.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. INVESTMENT TRANSACTIONS

    During the year ended October 31, 2000, the Fund purchased $194,360,196 of
investment securities and sold $140,697,367 of investment securities other than
U.S.  government securities and short-term investments.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. BANK LOANS

    The Fund may borrow money for temporary or emergency purposes, such as
funding shareholder redemptions. Effective May 23, 2000, the Fund, along with
certain other Funds managed by JPMIM, entered into a $150,000,000  bank line of
credit agreement with DeutscheBank. Borrowings under the agreement will bear
interest  at approximate market rates and a commitment fee at  an annual rate of
0.085% on the unused portion of the committed amount.

OCTOBER 31, 2000
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. CONCENTRATIONS OF CREDIT RISK

    The Fund may have elements of risk not typically  associated with
investments in the United States of America due to concentrated investments in a
limited number of countries or regions which may vary throughout the year. Such
concentrations may subject the Fund to additional risks resulting from political
or economic conditions in such countries or regions and the possible imposition
of adverse governmental laws or currency exchange  restrictions could cause the
securities and their markets  to be less liquid and their prices more volatile
than those  of comparable U.S. securities.

    From time to time, the Fund may have a concentration of several shareholders
holding a significant percentage  of shares outstanding. Investment activities
of these shareholders could have a material impact on the Fund.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

    On September 13, 2000, J.P. Morgan & Co. Incorporated and The Chase
Manhattan Corporation announced that they have entered into an agreement and
plan of merger. The transaction is expected to close in December 2000 and is
subject to approval by shareholders of both companies.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To the Trustees and Shareholders of
J.P. Morgan Global 50 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 Global 50 Fund (one of
the Funds comprising the J.P. Morgan Series Trust, hereafter referred to as the
"Fund") at October 31, 2000, 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 May 29, 1998 (commencement of operations) through
October 31, 1998, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in
the United States of America. 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 auditing standards
generally accepted in the United States of America, 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, 2000 by correspondence with the custodian and brokers, provide a reasonable
basis for our opinion.
