Janus launches three separately managed portfolios

RELATED TOPICS​

Janus Capital Group has launched three investment strategies which are available for US institutional investors in separate accounts.



The new offerings, Janus Emerging Markets Equity Portfolio, Janus Global High Yield Portfolio and Janus Global Investment Grade Bond Portfolio, were developed in response to client demand for actively managed emerging market equity and global bond strategies.

The Janus Emerging Markets Equity Portfolio will invest in emerging markets securities and will be benchmarked to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The strategy, which was formally launched on 30 September, is managed by co-portfolio managers Wahid Chammas and Matt Hochstetler. The portfolio managers will invest up to 80 per cent in companies domiciled in emerging markets that they believe are trading below their estimate of the stock’s long-term value. They seek quality companies that they believe have sustainable competitive advantages and high or improving returns on capital.

"Emerging market equities are increasingly becoming an important part of the global economy," says Jonathan Coleman, co-chief investment officer, equity with Janus. "We think this strategy will be a compelling investment option for investors seeking access to emerging markets in a standalone strategy."

The Janus Global High Yield Portfolio and Janus Global Investment Grade Bond Portfolio, which were launched on 29 October, are Janus’ first two global bond strategies. The portfolios, which are co-managed by portfolio managers Gibson Smith and Darrell Watters, will use a fundamentally driven investment process focused on credit-orientated investments around the world.

The benchmark for Janus Global High Yield Portfolio is the Barclays Capital Global High Yield Index and Janus Global Investment Grade Bond Portfolio is benchmarked to the Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Corporate Bond Index.
