JPMorgan Realty Income ETF (NYSEARCA: JPRE)
The ETF Invests primarily in stocks of real estate investment trusts (REITs) by continuously screening the REIT universe and selecting companies that show superior financial strength, operating revenues and attractive growth potential.
Furthermore, the ETF uses an in-depth analysis of each REIT to evaluate whether each company’s current price fully reflects its long-term value.
“We [also] believe the combination of the mutual fund and ETF boards will allow shareholders to benefit from the boards’ substantial combined experience and better position us to deliver the highest value-add capabilities in a rapidly evolving industry,” said JPMAM CEO George Gatch.
The new ETF has a net expense ratio of 0.5%.
