Since Tuesday, a new active exchange traded fund by J.P. Morgan Asset Management is tradable on Xetra.
The JPM Japan Research Enhanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF pursues an active investment strategy and mainly invests in a portfolio of Japanese companies. The titles are selected based on a fundamental bottom-up approach and those companies with the greatest potential for above-average share price development are being overweighted.
Companies involved in businesses such as tobacco, coal for power plants and controversial weapons are excluded from the ETF. In addition, the company’s own ESG scoring method is used to consider ecological and social aspects in the selection of companies.
Investors can trade the ETF in Japanese Yen.
