Find out more about the benefits of Ultra-Short Income ETFs
Active security selection
The funds aim to mitigate volatility and limit duration exposure by investing in a diversified basket of very short maturity bonds and debt instruments—ranging from investment-grade fixed and floating-rate corporate and structured debt to government bonds.
Although actively managed, the investments are conservative in nature and selected by an in-depth and disciplined process.
Managed by money market experts
Security selection and credit research draw on the extensive resources of the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Global Liquidity platform:

Ultra-short securities have a duration of less than one year, compared to one- to three-years for short duration bonds.
Ultra-short securities are less sensitive to changes in interest rates and inflation, providing the potential to earn attractive risk-adjusted returns.
