The ETF will be managed by Portfolio Managers Greg Kuhl, CFA, and Danny Greenberger. Janus Henderson is known for its expertise in managing real estate equity portfolios, its Global Real Estate Team, and having more than $3 billion in global assets under management as March 31, 2021.
The JRE ETF is a natural product extension based on the expertise of that team and existing U.S. real estate equities strategy.
The fund’s expense ratio is 0.65%.
“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,” said Kuhl in a statement.
“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,” said Nick Cherney, Head of Exchange Traded Products at Janus Henderson.
