JPM AM launches duration hedged bond fund

JPM AM launches duration hedged bond fund

JP Morgan Asset Management has launched a new bond fund following regulatory changes for duration hedged share classes, Citywire Selector has learned.

The JPMorgan Funds – Global Corporate Bond Duration-Hedged fund was launched on July 31.

The duration hedged share classes of the JPMorgan Funds – Global Corporate Bond fund were closed and the holdings merged into the new fund.

It is managed by Citywire A-rated Lisa Coleman, Citywire AA-rated Jeremy Klein, Citywire + rated Andreas Michalitsianos, Usman Naeem and Lorenzo Napolitano.

The fund invests primarily in global investment grade corporate debt securities while hedging interest rate risk.

Commenting on the launch, a spokesperson for the company said: ‘Following regulatory changes outlined by ESMA, duration hedged share classes can no longer be offered in sub-funds that have other types of share classes.

‘JPMorgan Funds – Global Corporate Bond Duration-Hedged fund will continue to provide a solution for investors who want to mitigate the impact of interest rate movements on their investments.’

The fund is currently registered for sale in Belgium, Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
