JP Morgan joins The Big Exchange for fairer, sustainable investing

JP Morgan Asset Management has joined The Big Exchange, fuelling the growing movement towards fair, sustainable and inclusive finance.

JP Morgan has joined the growing list of organisations partnering with The Big Exchange to offer people a more ethical way to invest their money.

Savers can now choose The JPM Emerging Markets Equity Fund as one of 45 ethical investment options through The Big Exchange, a sustainable and responsible investment platform co-founded by The Big Issue and a coalition of industry partners.

The JPM Emerging Markets Sustainable Equity Fund invests in companies believed “to have effective governance and superior management of environmental and social issues”, according to the JP Morgan website.

“The investment industry has an urgent and vital role to play in addressing the global challenges that are facing our planet and society,” said Jill Jackson, chief executive of The Big Exchange. “We’re delighted to welcome JP Morgan Asset Management to partner with us and add to the choice for UK customers seeking access to independently rated sustainable and impact funds that work towards positive outcomes for society and the environment as well as aiming to help people achieve their investment objectives.”

The Big Exchange launched in October 2020 as a social and environmental investment platform to give savers more ethical choices for investing their money.

In June The Big Exchange released a free money management app intended to help anyone balance their budgets, plan ahead and make their money work harder.
