J.P. Morgan Asset Management Launches Two ActiveBuilders Equity ETFs: JUSA and JIDA

NEW YORK, July 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — J.P. Morgan Asset Management today announced the launch of two active equity ETFs, JPMorgan ActiveBuilders U.S. Large Cap Equity ETF (JUSA) and JPMorgan ActiveBuilders International Equity ETF (JIDA) (collectively, the “funds”).

Morgan Asset Management. “JUSAJIDA and JEMA each offers the ability for investors to potentially strengthen their core portfolios and broader asset allocation strategy by combining the JPMorgan’s fundamental insights with the lower fees and tracking error of passive investing.”

The fund leverages the best ideas across J.P. Morgan’s Global Equities platform and the tenured investment team, comprising more than 35 years of combined experience co-headed by portfolio managers Davis Jiang and Tim Snyder, based in New York.
