RELATED TOPICS​

Janus Capital Group has appointed Enrique Chang as chief investment officer of equities and asset allocation.

 
In this new role for the firm, Chang (pictured) will oversee Janus’ equity, risk management and alternatives teams and will partner with Janus’ leadership to develop multi-strategy portfolio solutions to serve clients’ evolving needs.
 
Chang will assume the management of the equity investment team, a role currently held by Jonathan Coleman. At Coleman’s request, he will focus solely on portfolio management; he has been named head of growth equities. Chang, who will join Janus in September following a garden leave, will report to chief executive officer Richard Weil.
 
“Enrique has a proven track record of working collaboratively with investment teams to ensure that portfolio solutions are anticipating clients’ needs,” says Weil. “He will provide the support necessary for Jonathan to concentrate on investing and maintain the continuity of Janus’ investment philosophy and process within our growth equity franchise.”
 
“Janus has a strong team and I look forward to drawing on my experience to support the equity team and identify opportunities for creative solutions that leverage Janus’ expertise across investment disciplines,” Chang says.
 
For the last six years, Chang was chief investment officer and executive vice president at American Century Investments and a member of the American Century Companies board of directors. He joined American Century in 2006 and was named CIO in January 2007. Chang was responsible for a team of more than 150 investment professionals including portfolio managers, analysts and traders across all investment sectors. He led the company’s asset allocation committee and investment management senior leadership team.
 
Previously, Chang was president and chief investment officer for Munder Capital Management. He also held senior investment management positions at Vantage Global Advisors, J&W Seligman and General Reinsurance Corporation.
