Janus Henderson has launched an active exchange traded fund on the Australian Stock Exchange, which will give investors access to a global equity portfolio of resources companies positioned for the transition to a low-carbon future.

The Janus Henderson Net Zero Transition Resources Active ETF (JZRO) will hold between 25 to 50 companies across a diverse range of sectors, market capitalisations and countries.

"At Janus Henderson Investors Australia, we are committed to expanding and extending our product offering to meet the growing ESG investing demands of our clients, while also offering Janus Henderson's high-quality global products to Australian investors," Janus Henderson head of Australia, Matt Gaden, said.

The ETF has a management fee of 0.85 per cent per annum of the asset value of the fund and is jointly managed by head of global natural resources, Daniel Sullivan, Sydney-based portfolio managers Tim Gerrard and Darko Kuzmanovic, and London-based portfolio manager Tal Lomnitzer.
