JP Morgan closed down 'Global Catholic Ethical' investment fund

August 13, 2012

The JP Morgan investment bank has announced that it is closing down the Global Catholic Ethical Balanced Fund, which had been launched to attract Catholic investors seeking to place their investments in firms that did not violate the principles of Church teaching.

The Global Catholic Ethical Balanced Fund had produced disappointing results, both for investors and for JP Morgan. The fund brought in $4.4 million in investments, a figure far short of the $30 million that Morgan had hoped for. Investors earned only modest returns on their money.
