Frequently asked questions
These are collective investment schemes that enable investors to spread their investment risk and benefit from professional fund management.
Janus Henderson offers a wide selection of investment funds which enables you to choose the regional focus (e.g. UK or worldwide), the asset class (e.g. bonds or equities) and objective (e.g. growth or income).
An ISA is like a wrapper that protects your investments from income and capital gains. So it enables you to hold investments tax-efficiently.
Stocks and shares ISAs provide the following tax benefits:
Any gains from the underlying investments in your ISA are free from capital gains tax.
- No income tax is payable on distributions or dividends from the underlying investments in your ISA.
We offer stocks and shares ISAs that are only available to investors aged 18 years or over who HMRC regards as resident in the UK for tax purposes.
We do not offer junior ISAs (for children below 18) or cash ISAs.
Please note that only UK domiciled funds provided by Janus Henderson can be held in the ISA.
Typically, these are the features of most of our investment trusts:
- They invest in shares and securities of other companies that trade on stock markets worldwide.
- They are listed on the London Stock Exchange.
- An independent board of directors oversees each investment trust.
- A fund management firm (Janus Henderson) is appointed to manage the portfolio.
- Their shares are traded on the open market.
- Many investment trusts have a long heritage – the Bankers Investment Trust was launched in 1888.
A fund may generate income from its underlying investments. The fund may pay out or reinvest this income, depending on the type of shares or units held.
When you hold accumulation shares/units, you are normally looking for growth. The fund reinvests all the income to maximise growth potential, increasing the value of the shares/units. The number of shares/units does not change.
When you hold income shares/units, you are normally looking for income. So you can choose to have the income paid to a nominated bank or building society account. Alternatively, you can reinvest the income to purchase additional income shares/units. If a particular fund does not offer accumulation shares/units, the income can be reinvested to purchase more income shares/units.
There are a number of ways to obtain a valuation:
1) You can ask us by phone or by writing to us - Contact us
2) You can check online via myHenderson – you will need to register for this service if you have not already done so.
For security reasons, Janus Henderson does not send valuations by email.
We send OEIC and unit trust statements twice yearly, showing the value of your holdings as at 30 June and 31 December. You should receive them about 30 business days after the valuation dates. The statements include details of any transactions during the six-month period.
If you need an urgent valuation, please see How can I get a valuation of my investment? section above.
