London Stock Exchange welcomes J.P. Morgan Asset Management to celebrate its new sustainable ETF
Today the London Stock Exchange markets were opened by J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM) to celebrate the launch of JPMorgan Carbon Transition Global Equity UCITS ETF (ticker: JPCT), a sustainable ETF which offers core exposure to global equities with a low tracking error, compared to the MSCI World Index, and have a meaningful reduction in carbon intensity.
JPCT will track the JPMorgan Asset Management Carbon Transition Global Equity Index, which was built to achieve a meaningful reduction in carbon intensity without relying on exclusions or sector deviations. JPCT uses a forward-looking proprietary research framework to identify which companies, across all sectors, are most aligned with the transition to a low carbon economy. JPCT will offer investors at least 30% less carbon intensity than the MSCI World index, and a year-on-year de-carbonization target of at least 7%, in line with EU Climate Transition Benchmark (CTB) framework for sustainable investing.
Created by JPMAM’s Sustainable Investing and Quantitative Beta Solutions teams, the carbon transition quantitative investment framework underpinning the new index helps to mitigate the risks of climate change by reducing carbon emissions and leaning into the opportunities and technologies required for a successful transition to a low carbon world. JPCT will have a Total Expense Ratio of 19 basis points.
Olivier Paquier, Head of ETF Distribution in EMEA, said: “Many investors are considering the carbon transition readiness of their portfolios, coupled with a need to maintain broad diversification, a low tracking error and cost-efficiency. Our carbon transition global equity ETF should help meet those needs as clients look to integrate low carbon transition considerations when investing in global equities.”
