Janus Henderson Balanced Strategy Update Webcast replay
Join our Balanced strategy portfolio managers as they discussed the strategies current positioning, short-term headwinds, outlook and how the strategy’s long history of navigating economic downturns has proven to capture less downside than the broader equity market. Today’s unsettled economic environment, with heightened uncertainty in both the equity and bond markets, is leaving investors feeling helpless on where to turn.
The conversation was supplemented by our Portfolio Construction and Strategy team who outlined how balanced strategies can be a strong solution to ease some of the anxiety around today’s market uncertainty, and why having an experienced active manager in the space is crucial.

Invested in Connecting Equities Forum
2022 has been challenging for markets so far with investors attempting to price in risks surrounding inflationary pressures and central bank hawkishness, the war in Ukraine, and ongoing pandemic-related supply chain issues. This, combined with a rising focus on ESG factors, has left many investors reconsidering their asset allocations.
How will these pressures evolve and what will the impact be on equities throughout the rest of the year? Janus Henderson’s Invested in Connecting Equities Forum offers an opportunity for delegates to engage with equity sector specialists on where they see key opportunities, risks and themes, and why they believe there are reasons for optimism in the longer term.

Proceed with caution – now is the time to be selective in high yield
There is no textbook answer for how markets will react to an evolving backdrop of inflationary pressures, rate hikes, and diminishing liquidity. The early months of 2022 have already brought some abrupt market moves, but it is worth remembering that the travelling companion of volatility is opportunity. In this webcast, Tom Ross and Seth Meyer, co-managers of high yield strategies at Janus Henderson Investors, explored the environment for high yield and discussed how being selective can benefit investors in periods of uncertainty.
Key topics covered include:
- Macro scene – what does the mix of inflation and tighter policy mean for high yield?
- Corporate health – are relatively strong corporate fundamentals being overlooked?
- Selectivity in volatility – identifying opportunities from spread movements and credit upgrades.

Could this cycle be very different for European Equities?
Markets so far in 2022 have felt like entering a factor casino where stock specifics have been drowned out by the growth vs value style debate. Persisting inflationary pressures and hawkish central banks have prompted investors to challenge the dominant narrative of the last market cycle – to buy growth and sell value – and the extension of that –to buy tech and sell oil, buy the S&P 500 and sell MSCI Europe, buy bonds and then buy more bonds.
Richard Brown, Client Portfolio Manager, is joined by our European experts in a thought provoking discussion as they assess the potential for outperformance from European Equities and the best stock opportunities in the current market environment. John Bennett (blend style), Nick Sheridan (value style), and Robert Schramm-Fuchs (long/short style) cover key trends and participate in a Q&A at the end of the debate.

The last hurrah – fading stimulus means markets are on their own
