First Trust first entered the Mexican market in 2011.

JP Morgan sponsors the cross-listing of First Trust’s ETFs and services the ETFs by handling corporate actions, disseminating information and working with investors in Mexico.

“We are delighted to provide Mexican investors additional choices to invest more broadly and diversify risk. We believe the key features provided by our ETFs, such as transparency, style consistency and differentiated market exposures, make them attractive to investors,” said Dan Lindquist, Managing Director of First Trust. “Mexico presents a significant opportunity for First Trust. As demand for ETFs in Mexico continues to grow, we plan to be there to meet that demand.”
