James Ross set to become sole manager of the Janus Henderson Horizon Pan European Equity Fund

After 32 years with Janus Henderson Investors, Tim Stevenson, Director of Pan European Equities, has decided to retire from the industry. Tim will remain with the team on a transitional basis through the first quarter of 2019.

Our team-based approach allows for James Ross, his co-manager on the Janus Henderson Horizon Pan European Equity Fund to continue to manage the fund.

Continuity of process

The fund will follow the proven strategy that has delivered success over the long term by investing in high quality European companies. The investment process and objective will not change.

James has worked directly with Tim co-managing Pan European Equity portfolios since August 2016 and has worked alongside him as a member of the European Equity Team for many more years in an earlier role as a UK equity fund manager. James Ross has 11 years of financial industry experience and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.

Tim Stevenson, Director of Pan European Equities, says:
“James has impressive enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, the companies and the opportunities that exist from investing in Europe. The job of the European fund manager requires energy, brains, determination and skill. James has all of these and I am so pleased that he is taking on the full responsibility of looking after clients’ money in the complex but exciting area of Europe. I want to take this opportunity to wish him the very best of luck, and to thank clients for their support and patience over so many years.  Finally, I would like to also thank all the great colleagues with whom I have worked in my career at Janus Henderson.”

James Ross, Fund Manager, says: 
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Tim for the last few years; I am excited at the prospect of taking over sole responsibility for our mandates after his retirement. Tim will leave behind a legacy of consistent value-creation for clients; a record that I will seek to emulate.”

We wish Tim well with his retirement and look to James and the wider European equity team to help build on his long-term success. If you have any questions about this announcement or any other investment-related queries please speak to your usual Janus Henderson representative.
