NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- J.P. Morgan Asset Management today announced the launch of the JPMorgan BetaBuilders International Equity ETF (BBIN), providing investors with liquid, low-cost access to Developed International equities ex-North America.
The launch expands JPMorgan's innovative BetaBuilders suite of ETFs to eight strategies, offering efficient access to simple market cap-weighted building blocks priced for today's market. The new fund provides cost-efficient market-cap weighted exposure to the Morningstar Developed Markets ex-North America Target Market Exposure Index.
"BBIN has been designed to provide investors with efficient access to the almost $50 trillion global equities market, a core allocation for any diversified portfolio," said Joanna Gallegos, U.S. Head of ETFs at J.P. Morgan Asset Management. "BBIN gives investors broad, diversified access to the developed international equity market, at a fraction of the price of purchasing across individual markets."
BBIN leverages JPMorgan's 30-plus year track record managing equity index strategies and the Fund's portfolio management team, headed by Ove Fladberg, averages 18 years' experience. JPMorgan's beta platform manages over $45 billion across market-cap weighted, strategic beta and alternative beta investment strategies.
"The launch of BBIN demonstrates JPMorgan's ability to leverage our scale and technology to efficiently access markets and pass these benefits onto investors. Our BetaBuilders platform has a track record delivering precise, reliable performance across U.S. and international equity markets, and BBIN is building on this legacy by giving investors a straight-forward and cost-effective way to add equity exposure to their portfolio," continued Gallegos.
With this launch, J.P. Morgan Asset Management's U.S. ETF suite now features 33 product offerings with close to $30 billion in assets under management. J.P.
