The actively managed fund will target real estate securities driving the future of the sector, which may include cell towers, data centers, gaming REITs, cold storage and more, without bias toward style, property type or market cap.

Inflation protection

“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.
