For Institutional Investors in Australia

Secured Loans

A defensive portfolio of higher-quality borrowers in the European loans market with a focus on dependable income and default avoidance.



The Secured Loans Strategy is a conservative strategy run by a long-established  specialist loans team who apply an active investment approach focusing on bottom-up credit selection. With a medium to long-term horizon and a focus on larger and more liquid loans, the team conducts rigorous fundamental analysis of each issuer, seeking to identify defensive businesses with strong downside resilience, not only to add value but also to avoid losses by minimising defaults in the portfolio.

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past Performance is not a guide to future performance. No investment strategy, including a protection strategy, can ensure a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.

Investment approach

A focus on fundamental analysis
Combining both qualitative and quantitative techniques, our investment process enables us to screen and analyse every investment and develop a strong conviction for each security we hold.

Depth and experienced investment team
Experienced specialist loans team integrated with a well-resourced global research platform, that can leverage from the broader investment platform of Janus Henderson.

Superior credit selection
As part of our selection criteria, we seek to avoid niche issuers and deals, while maintaining the flexibility to look for relative value trades to improve credit quality and/or improve yield.
