Janus Launches Sustainable ETFs; Mackenzie Unveils Boutique

Janus Henderson Group has launched five actively managed sustainable exchange traded funds (ETFs) for US investors, including three equity and two fixed income vehicles.

The three equity offerings are the US Sustainable Equity ETF, International Sustainable Equity ETF and the Net Zero Transition Resources ETF.

The first two are high conviction strategies, investing in low-carbon orientated companies, while the third is a global equities portfolio made up of resources positioned by companies across the supply chain for the transition to a low-carbon future.

The Sustainable Corporate Bond ETF, meanwhile, is a corporate credit portfolio that utilizes screening to identify those US companies with advancing ESG principles.

Finally, the Sustainable & Impact Core Bond ETF offers exposure to opportunities with the potential for positive impact across several social and environmental themes.

Meanwhile, Canadian investment management company Mackenzie has launched an investment boutique focused on sustainable and ESG investment solutions.

Led by portfolio manager Andrew Simpson, Mackenzie Betterworld will adopt a process that primarily focuses on ESG analysis, supported by financial analysis.

The boutique’s team will construct diversified, large-cap equity portfolios with a long-term value focus and will utilize independent ESG research to identify opportunities.

Companies that will make up the portfolios will be expected to have growth potential and be aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Elsewhere, Swiss investment house GAM Investments has launched a sustainable climate bond strategy that targets green and sustainability bonds issued by European financials that have a positive environmental impact.

The strategy will be managed by Atlanticomnium, a Geneva-based independent fund management company, which will allocate to bonds with proceeds going to green projects that have measurable impacts, such as renewable energy.

GAM Investments recently joined the non-profit organization Climate Bonds Initiative, which works to mobilize the bond market for climate change solutions.
