JP Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM) has expanded its Fixed Income BetaBuilders capabilities with the launch of JPM BetaBuilders US Treasury Bond UCITS ETF (BBTR) and JPM BetaBuilders EUR Govt Bond UCITS ETF (BBEG).
Both ETFs are now available on the London Stock Exchange, Deutsche Boerse Xetra, Borsa Italiana and SIX Swiss Exchange.
BBTR aims to offer investors liquid, low-cost beta exposure to dollar-denominated treasury bonds issued by the US government across the full yield curve and will closely track the JP Morgan Government Bond Index United States. BBEG aims to offer investors liquid, low-cost beta exposure to euro-denominated government bonds issued by Eurozone countries across the full yield curve and will closely track the JP Morgan EMU Government Bond Index.
Both ETFs leverage JPMAM’s experience in index replication, portfolio management and scale in custom technology solutions. BBTR and BBEG will have a Total Expense Ratio (TER) of 10 basis points each.
Bryon Lake, Head of International ETFs at JPMAM, says: “Fixed Income ETFs are growing in popularity since they can add diversified and liquid bond exposure to an investment portfolio with a level of simplicity and transparency that’s not possible when investing in global bond markets directly. Our BetaBuilders ETF suite is designed to offer clients efficient access to market-cap weighted building block solutions.”
Investors can use Fixed Income ETFs to gain exposure to a wide range of bond markets from emerging market debt (hard currency and local currency) to investment-grade bonds, through market-cap, strategic beta or active strategies.
