JP Morgan Asset Management has launched the JPMorgan Disciplined High Yield ETF.
The ETF, run by the firm’s high yield investment team that manages €35bn in AUM, provides high yield exposure by systematically excluding securities that show unattractive risk-reward profiles.
“Fixed income is an important component of an investor’s diversification strategy and the JPMorgan Disciplined High Yield ETF makes the high yield segment of the market more accessible, in a cost-effective manner,” said Robert Deutsch, global head of ETFs for JP Morgan Asset Management.
“Additionally, corporate high yield bonds tend to outperform during periods of rising rates and economic growth, which has been a concern for our clients given the challenging market conditions.”
The firm now tallies 10 ETFs
JP Morgan Asset Management had $1.7trn as of 31 December 2015.
