LONDON, April 13th, 2021 — Janus Henderson Group plc (NYSE/ASX: JHG) has been recognized in the 2021 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards for its investment excellence in multiple categories across fixed income, real estate and equities.

…And the Winners Are…
The Janus Henderson Horizon Euro High Yield Bond Fund to access the total return potential of European high-yield bonds through a portfolio diversified by issuers, sectors, and geography. The portfolio is high-conviction and security selection drives returns, with the ability to access smaller, less-liquid issuers and a focus on company metrics, corporate strategy, and bond covenants in context of credit cycle and market conditions.
The Janus Henderson Horizon Euro Corporate Bond Fund invests primarily in euro-denominated, investment-grade corporate bonds. Careful security analysis, which prioritises conviction and opportunity rather than benchmark weights, is blended with top-down macroeconomic analysis, diversification, and risk management with the objective of delivering optimised returns for investors.
The Janus Henderson Horizon Global High Yield Bond Fund utilizes active management and research to identify positive catalysts and improving balance sheets to help capture returns and avoid defaults or rating downgrades. Co-managed from the US and Europe, the fund benefits from a global perspective with local insight and enables access to a variety of economies and companies at different stages in the business cycle.
“We’re delighted our funds are being recognized in the prestigious Lipper Fund Awards,” said Enrique Chang, Global Chief Investment Officer at Janus Henderson. “This recognition is a testament to our team’s devotion to delivering intended outcomes for clients and world class service.

Jim Cielinski, Global Head of Fixed Income at Janus Henderson said: “The fixed income team deserves recognition for their focus on delivery in 2020 and to our continually improving services for clients”.
