“In choppy markets, many investors are seeking a less volatile way to participate in equities” Robert Deutsch, Global Head of ETFs for J.P. Morgan Asset Management, said in a press release. “JPSE is a cost-efficient, risk-managed approach to U.S. small cap investing, enabling clients to get invested in the equity markets.”
The alternative multi-factor indexing methodology may help investors diversify away from potential risks associated with traditional market capitalization-weighted indices, such as bubbles, risk concentrations and preference for overvalued stocks.
JPSE rounds out J.P. Morgan’s U.S. equity asset category offerings, including the JPMorgan Diversified Return US Equity ETF (NYSEArca: JPUS), which leans toward large-cap companies, and JPMorgan Diversified Return U.S. Mid Cap Equity ETF (NYSEArca: JPME), which focuses more on mid-cap stocks.
