John Hancock Investments launches international ETF


John Hancock Investments has expanded its exchange-traded fund (ETF) product line-up with the launch of John Hancock Multifactor Developed International ETF (JHMD).

Dimensional Fund Advisors designed the underlying developed-market equity index for the new ETF based on its factor-based approach.
JHMD trades on the NYSE Arca.
"Adding an ETF focused on international investing is a logical extension of our product line, and we are pleased to be able to bring Dimensional's proven multifactor approach to investors seeking to invest in international markets," says Andrew G Arnott, president and CEO of John Hancock Investments.
Dimensional began applying the concept of multifactor investing more than 30 years ago.
"The beauty of Dimensional's philosophy is that it is straightforward and disciplined in its approach, yet so thoughtful and innovative in its implementation. They are truly an exceptional firm to be able to partner with to deliver solutions to our clients," says Steve L Deroian, head of ETF strategy at John Hancock Investments.
John Hancock Investments has had a relationship with Dimensional and its portfolio management teams since 2006, with strategies offered as both individual John Hancock mutual funds and through John Hancock asset allocation portfolios.
