The bigger picture is sustainable
Our clients are increasingly looking for investment solutions that reflect not only their financial goals but also their values.
The JPMorgan Global Macro Sustainable Fund employs our tried and tested macro process sustainably to help investors align their goals with their values1.
As macro investors, we invest in shares, bonds and other assets. But rather than starting with specifics, we start with the big picture. We seek to identify the large external forces that can drive the performance of companies, asset classes and markets over time.
|Economic developments||Social change||Demographic shifts|
We invest in the companies and other assets, across sectors and regions, that we think have the potential to benefit from these global themes – and we also try to profit from short exposure areas that we expect to be challenged as a result of those themes. We don’t have a benchmark to constrain us, and we aren’t solely reliant on rising markets to generate returns on your investment1.
Investing sustainably is a way to align your values with your goals for your money. It is also a way to seek to manage the risks and capture the opportunities as the world adapts to changes in our climate, the broader environment and society.
Our clients’ values are reflected through robust environmental, social and governance (ESG) research, systematic exclusions to certain industries, and a tilt towards companies and issuers screening better on ESG and sustainable criteria.

Built to reflect your values
The JPMorgan Global Macro Sustainable Fund seeks to reflect our clients’ values through a three-pillar approach to building a sustainable portfolio.
Integration of ESG2 into decision-making
Consideration of ESG materiality forms part of the security research and is factored into decision-making across the entire Macro Strategies platform.
Systematic exclusions based on client values
Systematic exclusions3 are applied to certain industries and sectors to reflect our clients’ values and expected business practices. Exclusions are applied to single companies and broader exposures via derivatives.
Positive positioning to sustainable securities
We lean into better ESG and more sustainable outcomes. We also maintain an average weighted ESG score for equity and fixed income above the respective universes.
We delineate our world view into a set of macro themes to provide an efficient framework for focusing our research and the basis of profitable investment opportunities. We implement these themes through a focused set of strategies and can flexibly adjust portfolio exposures when the macro landscape and market environment are shifting. Risk4 awareness is central to the investment approach.
