As the investing landscape evolves, Janus has expanded its offerings to include ETFs, giving advisors access to a suite of new, intelligent investment solutions. The Janus small cap products will be the first ETFs to launch since Janus’s November 2014 acquisition of VS Holdings Inc., the parent company of VelocityShares, LLC, the developer of sophisticated solutions for institutional investors and traders. Janus’s ETP business has grown to approximately $3.5 billion in assets across 17 investment products as of September 30, 2015.

“These ETFs are the result of a great opportunity to marry Janus’s expertise as a fundamental manager in the small cap arena, with our robust quantitative abilities in exchange traded products. After extensive development work we look forward to offering these innovative ETFs,” said Nick Cherney, Senior Vice President, Head of Exchange Traded Products of Janus Capital Group.

“High quality active management is both an art and a science. These products are intended to extract the science portion of Janus’s small cap investment process and deliver it in a tax efficient, transparent and low cost ETF vehicle to meet the increasing client need for such products,” said Jonathan Coleman, Portfolio Manager of Janus Triton and Janus Venture Funds.
