Overview

ABOUT THIS PORTFOLIO

An international equity fund seeking to grow capital by investing with conviction in companies outside the U.S. where the portfolio managers believe the market underestimates free-cash-flow growth. The Fund considers both growth and value criteria as it seeks to deliver strong, risk-adjusted returns over the long term, regardless of prevailing market conditions.

WHY INVEST IN THIS PORTFOLIO

Flexible International All-Cap Equities

The portfolio managers have the flexibility to invest in 30 to 60 companies outside the U.S. and across the market cap and style spectrum where free-cash-flow growth is believed to be underestimated by the market. The portfolio managers search for both growing companies and attractive valuations.

Differentiated & Uncorrelated Insights

The intersection of independent viewpoints and differentiated perspectives between the portfolio managers and research analysts should lead to potentially greater and more consistent excess returns over time.

Exacting Portfolio Construction

Taking a prudent approach to portfolio construction and risk management, the portfolio managers aim to drive superior risk-adjusted returns over the full market cycle through stock selection in an effort to avoid persistent biases.

Knowledge. Shared

At Janus Henderson, we believe in the sharing of expert insight for better investment and business decisions.

We call this ethos Knowledge. Shared.
