Janus Henderson: Investing in sustainability
“The launch of this comprehensive suite of sustainable ETFs is designed to showcase Janus Henderson’s intention to help investors embrace sustainability in an authentic way, without sacrificing a commitment to robust investment results.

“To us, sustainability is a logical and critical component of a robust investment process. And it is our belief that addressing complex and nuanced factors such as climate change and social issues in a meaningful way requires an active and engaged investment approach. It is through detailed analysis and regular interaction with companies that we believe true progress and sound investment decisions can be made,” said Paul LaCoursiere, Global Head of ESG Investments.
Janus Henderson had approximately US$428 billion in assets under management as on June 30, 2021.
