Janus Henderson expands active ETF offering with US Real Estate ETF

Janus Henderson Group has launched the Janus Henderson US Real Estate ETF (JRE). Managed by Portfolio Managers Greg Kuhl, CFA, and Danny Greenberger, the fund seeks to provide access to real estate securities driving the future of the sector, which may include cell towers, data centres, gaming REITs, cold storage and more, without bias toward style, property type or market cap.

“Offering attractive valuations, structural and secular growth tailwinds and an opportunity to provide investors with protection from inflation, real estate is an asset class with the potential to create significant shareholder value and compelling returns in the coming years,” says Kuhl.

Janus Henderson has strong capabilities and a track record managing Real Estate Equity portfolios and an established Global Real Estate team, with more than $3B in global assets under management as of March 31, 2021. The JRE exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a natural product extension based on the expertise of our Global Real Estate Equities team and existing US real estate equities strategy.

“Supply and demand dynamics within the real estate market are continuously evolving, making it an asset class where active management can add meaningful value to investors,” says Nick Cherney, Head of Exchange Traded Products at Janus Henderson. “With many investors under-allocated to real estate, JRE brings Janus Henderson’s expertise in the asset class to ETF investors seeking to access its diversification, income, inflation-protection and risk-adjusted return potential.”
