Janus Henderson is set to enter European ETFs following the acquisition of Tabula Investment Management.

The $335bn asset manager will launch a suite of active ETFs while retaining Tabula's existing range.

The acquisition is expected to complete at the end of Q2, subject to regulatory approval.

The firm will look to leverage its current European client base as well as regions such as Latin America, the Middle East and APAC where the UCITS structure is often preferred.

Janus Henderson currently offers 11 ETFs in the US, with $15.9bn assets under management (AUM).

Michael John Lytle, CEO of Tabula, commented: “We are very excited to join Janus Henderson to further our common mission to offer investors market-leading investment solutions.”

Ali Dibadj, CEO of Janus Henderson, added: “We are extraordinarily pleased to be able to partner with the talented professionals at Tabula to help shape the coming evolution in ETFs for European and global investors.

"Tabula's existing infrastructure and ecosystem offers us instant access to an institutional platform that we believe will position Janus Henderson as a trusted and credible player in the European ETF market."

Founded in 2018, Tabula currently has $877m AUM across 10 fixed income ETFs and one gold exchange-traded commodity (ETC).

Active ETFs in Europe currently total €33.6bn AUM, up from €5.7bn at the start of 2015, according to data from Morningstar.
