Overview

ETF Objective

Janus Henderson Small Cap Growth Alpha ETF (JSML) seeks investment results that correspond generally, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the Janus Henderson Small Cap Growth Alpha Index.

Client Commitment

A small-cap growth ETF leveraging a rigorous, fundamentals-based process for selecting stocks based on Janus Henderson’s more than 45 years history in bottom-up equity research. The ETF seeks to invest in resilient growth companies with proven operational excellence providing investors with the opportunity to experience the long-term growth potential of the small-cap asset class in a variety of market environments.

Why Invest in the Fund

    Smart Growth® Process

  1. A proprietary methodology that evaluates small-cap stocks from a universe of 2,000 in three key areas: growth, profitability and capital efficiency. The Smart Growth process systematically identifies companies that may be poised for long-run sustainable growth.
  2. Proprietary Fundamental Methodology

  3. Each company is evaluated on 10 fundamental factors to identify those that can exhibit durable growth. Growth measures include revenue growth rate; profitability measures include operating profit and earnings per share; and capital efficiency measures include return on invested capital. The Portfolio seeks to invest in the top tier of eligible stocks.
  4. Seeks Risk-Adjusted Outperformance

  5. Seeks to deliver both risk-adjusted outperformance relative to the asset class and the potential for lower drawdown risk than traditional growth indices by aiming to avoid small companies without solid fundamental businesses.

Enhanced Beta ETF

Innovative strategies that package investing insights — whether that’s a distinctive process or a time-tested philosophy — with the features of an ETF.

Returns quoted are past performance and do not guarantee future results; current performance may be lower or higher. Investment returns and principal value will vary; there may be a gain or loss when shares are sold.
Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time (when NAV is normally determined for most ETFs), and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply and will reduce returns.
