ABOUT THIS PORTFOLIO

Balanced Portfolio’s dynamic asset allocation strategy has the flexibility to defensively position ahead of market volatility while seeking strong risk-adjusted returns. Unlike many competitor products, where asset allocations are constrained by static targets, the Fund’s asset allocations may vary between 35% to 65% equities depending on market conditions.

WHY INVEST IN THIS PORTFOLIO

Dynamic Asset Allocation
The portfolio managers make allocation decisions based on their view of overall market risk and careful examination of individual security valuations across equity and fixed income markets.

Integrated Research
Our equity and fixed income analysts work side-by-side covering the same global sectors, facilitating deeper analysis of a company’s fundamental outlook and understanding of management’s true intentions.

Seeks Consistent Results
The end result is a multi-asset, core holding portfolio offering the potential for long-term capital appreciation with the flexibility to navigate uncertain and volatile markets.

Equity Allocation Adapting to Market Changes

Balanced Fund Equity Allocation in Relation to Market Volatility (12/31/97 – 3/31/20)

Cboe Volatility Index® or VIX® Index® shows the market’s expectation of 30-day volatility. It is constructed using the implied volatilities of a wide range of S&P 500® index options and is a widely used measure of market risk. The VIX Index volatility methodology is the property of Chicago Board of Options Exchange, which is not affiliated with Janus Henderson
