JP Morgan has launched four new ETFs on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt – three active ETFs and one bond ETF.
The three active ETFs – JPMorgan ETFS (Ireland) ICAV – Global Research Enchanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF – USD (acc), JPMorgan ETFS (Ireland) ICAV – US Research Enhanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF – USD (acc), and JPMorgan ETFS (Ireland) ICAV – Europe Research Enhanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF – EUR (acc) – represent active investment strategies with equities of large and medium-sized companies that have a comparatively high ESG rating in their economic sector. Companies whose products have negative social or environmental impacts are not considered. The active ETFs focus on Europe, the USA and worldwide.
The fourth index fund – JPMorgan ETFS (Ireland) ICAV – USD Emerging Markets Sovereign Bond UCITS ETF – gives investors the opportunity to participate in the performance of US dollar-denominated government bonds worldwide and quasi-government emerging market bonds. The ETF uses a hedging strategy to minimise the exchange rate risk between the base currency of the bonds and the euro.
