Janus Henderson Group has filed a preliminary registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for five sustainable exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for investors in the US.
Janus Henderson plans to offer three equity and two fixed income ETFs, including US Sustainable Equity ETF (SSPX), International Sustainable Equity ETF (SXUS), Net Zero Transition Resources ETF (JZRO), Sustainable Corporate Bond ETF (SCRD), and Impact Bond ETF (JIB).
The new ETFs will be actively managed by four investment teams across three continents, including Portfolio Managers Hamish Chamberlayne, CFA; Aaron Scully, CFA; Daniel Sullivan, Darko Kuzmanovic, Tal Lomnitzer, CFA; Tim Gerrard, Brad Smith; Michael Keough; Nick Childs, CFA; and Greg Wilensky, CFA.
Consumer demand for ETFs and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investment opportunities is growing rapidly. Through its new ETFs, Janus Henderson hopes to offer investors additional options to build portfolios around sustainable investments in a cost-effective and flexible way.
“Janus Henderson has a 30-year track record of sustainable investing and we are committed to expanding and extending our product offering to meet the needs of our clients. These new ETFs will allow us to build on a strong tradition of sustainable investing and meet the growing demand for ESG investing opportunities,” said Dick Weil, Chief Executive Officer of Janus Henderson.
If all approvals are granted, the funds are expected to launch on or around 9 September, 2021.
