An hour after his appointment as Janus' interim CEO became public, Tim Armour
told analysts at a conference call late Tuesday afternoon that Janus will be a winner in the coming environment, along with ETFs and index funds.

and reasonable expense ratios," Armour said. "We're going to be a winner in the coming environment alongside low-cost ETFs and index funds."

"They are $3 trillion to $4 trillion parked in money market funds, they won't stay there forever," he said.
