JP Morgan Asset Management will launch three exchange-traded funds on 16 October, with concurrent listings on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), Deutsche Boerse Xetra and Borsa Italiana. 
 

 

 

 

The ETFs are:

JPM Europe Research Enhanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF [JREE]
JPM US Research Enhanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF [JREU]
JPM Global Research Enhanced Index Equity (ESG) UCITS ETF [JREG]

JREE will be benchmarked against the MSCI Europe Index. JREU will be benchmarked against the S&P 500 Index and JREG will be benchmarked against the MSCI World Index. All three ETFs will have a total expense ratio (TER) of 25 basis points.

The ETFs will also consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, which will be built into the investment decision-making process from the outset. In addition to ESG integration, the new active equity ETFs will take the focus on ESG one step further by applying norms- and values-based screening. This means companies involved in certain sectors, like controversial weapons and tobacco, will be excluded.
