Our investment capabilities

Investment teams

Our dynamic investment teams operate and are structured in ways that we believe are best suited to their asset classes and investment processes. For some, this involves close cooperation with our central teams of dedicated research analysts, while others base investment decisions primarily on their own team’s research and views. We do not impose top-down house views; instead we allow an appropriate level of flexibility within a risk-managed environment.

Risk management

Risk management and controls are essential to our investment approach. While we encourage fresh thinking and creativity, this is actioned at all times in a measurable and regulated way. We recognise that certain levels of risk have to be taken to generate outperformance, and our controls are intended to ensure that this risk is in accordance with client expectations and investment manager intentions.

At Janus Henderson, we act like owners. This means taking pride in what we do as we seek to pursue excellence in the investment results we deliver. It also means acting responsibly at all times in recognition of the trust our clients have put in us.

Product offering

Everything is shaped with the client in mind. Products are developed to meet evolving needs and investment managers operate within clearly articulated parameters to seek to achieve stated and/or agreed objectives. Transparency of process, positioning, and progress toward meeting objectives are central to our approach and our investment and distribution teams seek to keep clients informed at every stage.

Capabilities

We offer expertise across all major asset classes, with investment teams situated around the world. The Janus Henderson capabilities are grouped under five headings:

Equities

We offer a wide range of equity strategies encompassing different geographic focuses and investment styles. The equity teams include those with a global perspective, those with a regional focus – US, Europe, Asia, and Australia – and those invested in specialist sectors.
