JP Morgan ETFs available at SIX for the first time

RELATED TOPICS​

JP Morgan Asset Management is bringing its ETFs to the SIX Swiss Exchange with four new ETF listings.

SIX writes that this takes the number of ETF providers available via SIX to a new high of 24, and the number of ETFs to a record 1,352.
 
The new products include two active ETFs – the first to be listed with SIX in two years. The exchange writes that unlike most ETFs, which are managed passively, managers of these active ETFs review and optimize fund composition. They buy and sell selected shares or other securities.
 
This means they can respond immediately to incipient market trends. Active ETFs thereby aim to achieve a higher return than their benchmark, such as the SMI – Switzerland’s blue chip index. Providers of active ETFs undertake to disclose detailed product information. As with passive ETFs, active ETFs offer investors the benefits of on-exchange trading, such as security, fair pricing and transparency.
 
The new JP Morgan Asset Management products listed with SIX are designed to offer a diversified investment in bonds with very short maturities from a broad spectrum of corporate and government issuers with good ratings (investment-grade); an investment in emerging market bonds; an ETF on short-dated euro-denominated government bonds and a solution that targets hedge fund-like returns through the use of derivatives.
 
“In developing our ETF business, we are seeking to make JP Morgan Asset Management’s acknowledged, long-established expertise available in the ETF domain. When talking to investors, we found that there was demand for active, smart fixed-income solutions, as well as for strategies with low correlation to the broader market that can help equip portfolios to cope with rising volatility,” says Bryon Lake, Head of International ETFs at J.P. Morgan Asset Management.
