J.P. Morgan Asset Management Launches Core Plus Bond ETF: JCPB

--JCPB offers investors a unique active option in seeking to build stronger fixed income portfolios --

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- J.P. Morgan Asset Management today announced the launch of the JPMorgan Core Plus Bond ETF (JCPB), an actively managed fixed-income ETF, which delivers core exposure via the best ideas of J.P. Morgan's fixed income platform. The launch expands J.P. Morgan's innovative suite of actively managed fixed income ETFs to eight strategies.

The Fund seeks a high level of current income by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of high-, medium- and low-grade debt securities. The strategy combines bottom-up security selection with top-down analysis to improve potential for attractive risk-adjusted returns and increased income.

With approximately 80 years of combined industry experience, JCPB is led by a seasoned team of portfolio managers, utilizing the firm's deep bench of resources and leveraging the insights of over 280 fixed income specialists globally.

"JPMorgan is bringing choice to the fixed income market, delivering many of our best active ideas to areas where investors have previously had limited options," said Jillian DelSignore, U.S. head of ETF distribution at J.P. Morgan Asset Management. "Relative to passively-managed ETFs, JCPB offers a more flexible approach to a core fixed income allocation with the potential to achieve increased yield and enhanced risk-adjusted returns."

With this launch, J.P. Morgan Asset Management's ETF suite now features 32 product offerings with over $20 billion in assets under management. J.P. Morgan was awarded "Best New Alternatives ETF" for its JPMorgan Managed Futures Strategy ETF (JPMF) product and earned "Best New International/Global Fixed-Income ETF" for its JPMorgan Global Bond opportunities (JPGB) product at the fifth annual ETF.com Awards held in March 2018.1
