When we purchase shares of companies for our funds, we have the same rights as other shareholders of those companies. One of those rights is to vote on issues that are important to the companies we own in our funds. Since we sometimes own large amounts of shares, we take this voting responsibility very seriously. To ensure you are well-informed about our decisions, proxy voting records are available as indicated below.
Proxy Voting Policies and Procedures
Janus Henderson seeks to vote proxies in the best interest of its clients. Janus Henderson has adopted certain policies and procedures which set forth its approach to proxy voting matters, including how proxy advisory firms are used and how material conflicts of interest are addressed. Those policies and procedures are included below.
Janus Henderson’s clients may retain proxy voting responsibility or delegate such responsibility to Janus Henderson. For Janus Henderson Funds (including Janus Investment Fund mutual funds, Janus Aspen Series VIT portfolios, Detroit Street Trust ETFs and Clayton Street Trust VIT portfolios), their Boards of Trustees have delegated to Janus Capital Management or the Fund’s subadviser (Intech or Perkins), as applicable, the authority to vote all proxies relating to a Fund's holdings in accordance with their respective proxy voting policies and procedures.
