Key Facts About JEPI

  • Net assets: $32.7 billion
  • 12-month trailing yield: 7.56%
  • Inception: May 20, 2020
  • Expense ratio: 0.35%
  • Number of holdings: 119

JP Morgan’s Equity Premium Income ETF is unique for several reasons.

It’s an actively managed ETF. Yet, its expense ratio sits at just 0.35%.

The ETF is run by managers with over 60 years of combined investing experience. They employ a bottom-up fundamental research with proprietary risk-adjusted stock rankings. Then, they overlay out-of-the-money option call writing to generate monthly income.

Combined, this creates a uniquely attractive option for folks seeking a steady stream of income.

Overall, the ETF has a bit more exposure to financials and less to IT than the S&P 500 index.

While the ETF pays a healthy dividend, it gives up a fair amount of capital appreciation compared to the broader indexes.

That becomes quite evident when you look at the 1-year returns.

However, over the long run, things are a bit more balanced.

Because the ETF is newer, we don’t have comparison points beyond the last four years.
