JP Morgan Asset Management launches two new ETFs


JP Morgan Asset Management has expanded its strategic beta suite with the launch of two new funds, JPMorgan Diversified Return Europe Currency Hedged Equity ETF (JPEH) and JPMorgan Diversified Return International Currency Hedged Equity (JPIH).

Similar to JPMorgan Diversified Return Europe Equity ETF (JPEU) and Diversified Return International Equity ETF (JPIN), JPEH and JPIH offer a risk-managed approach to investing that can allow investors to capture most of the upside with a goal of providing less volatility in down markets. The ETFs diversify risk across sectors, while hedging FX exposure back to USD, providing investors with exposure to international equity markets with less risk.

As hedged versions of existing ETFs, JPEH and JPIH provide investors with the potential for higher returns with lower volatility than market cap-weighted indices.

JPEH tracks the FTSE Developed Europe Diversified Factor 100% Hedged to USD Index and JPIH tracks the FTSE Developed ex-North America Diversified Factor 100% Hedged to USD Index which were thoughtfully constructed based on JP Morgan's active insights and risk management expertise.

"As volatility and currency risk continue to worry investors, clients are increasingly turning to our strategic beta products for a new approach to address the drawbacks of market cap-weighted indices,” says Robert Deutsch, Global Head of ETFs for JP Morgan Asset Management. "We are thrilled to expand our investment capabilities with currency-hedged ETFs, complementing our existing strategies and offering clients more choices."

"We are excited to be able to draw on our significant global index capability to design innovative new indexes to serve as the basis for ETFs provided by our global partners like JP Morgan," says Ron Bundy, CEO of North America benchmarks for FTSE Russell.
