Janus Henderson Short Duration Income ETF VNLA consistently seeks to limit its downside risks, though we believe some competing choices have more to offer. This vehicle began in 2016 by a group that’s well-versed in flexible bond investing. Despite cycling through some key investment staff over time, this has never strayed far from its cautious, credit-oriented roots. Jason England took over as VNLA’s lead manager when Nick Maroutsos retired in 2021. Maroutsos had helped establish the U.S. operation, and the retirement of Sydney-based Steve Goldman on July 31, 2022, is a considerable loss. There’s some continuity with Sydney-based comanager Dan Siluk, and Kris Bernie arrived in March 2022 to bolster the group’s macroeconomic research. Still, more stable set ups can be found among some competitors.
