In Your Portfolio

Janus Henderson Investors

With its exposure to higher-yielding opportunities, the Fund may serve to complement and diversify a core fixed income allocation. It may be suitable for investors looking for a current monthly income stream.

When we add a security to the portfolio, the goal is to do one of two things: either dampen volatility or provide
us with the income that we want. Ideally, it will do both.”

– Seth Meyer, Portfolio Manager

Our Approach

IDENTIFY BEST RISK-ADJUSTED OPPORTUNITIES
Leverages a bottom-up, fundamental, actively managed approach across U.S. fixed income

FUNDS INVEST IN…

Higher yielding sectors to generate higher income – it may hold between 35% and 65% in below investment grade bonds

Less volatile sectors and shorter duration securities to help dampen overall volatility and create ballast for the fund

Janus Henderson
