    ETF Objective

    Janus Short Duration Income ETF (VNLA) seeks to provide a steady income stream with capital preservation across various market cycles. The Fund seeks to consistently outperform the LIBOR 3-month rate by a moderate amount through various market cycles while at the same time providing low volatility.


    Janus Short Duration Income ETF is an actively managed fixed income ETF with the potential to deliver returns above cash. The strategy seeks to provide a steady income stream with low volatility and capital preservation across economic cycles. Rather than tracking a benchmark, the Fund is designed to move beyond conventional constraints and provide positive absolute returns. The strategy can also act as a traditional fixed income diversifier and potentially reduce risk in an investor’s portfolio.

    Why Invest in VNLA

    Seeks Attractive Returns Above Cash

    The strategy combines an actively managed core portfolio of predominantly high quality investment grade fixed income assets, diversified across sectors and geographies, with high conviction tactical trades. We target positive, absolute returns by seeking to select fixed-income instruments that can provide a return of 2% to 3% above 3-Month USD LIBOR (a proxy for cash), while aiming to preserve capital.

    Low Volatility Approach

    We seek to provide an uncorrelated return profile to traditional fixed income that focuses on downside mitigation. Our low-volatility approach means investors may consider the strategy as an alternative to single sector and fixed-term passive options or as a way to put cash to work for potentially higher yield.

    Nimble and Flexible

    The team applies its experience in absolute return bond investing to seek out value and return potential in different market environments. We are free to take advantage of unique opportunities within countries and sectors that may be overlooked or underrepresented in market indices.
