Janus Henderson Institutional Japan Index Opportunities Fund

A Acc ISIN code: GB00B4JTJZ34

Investment objective

The Fund aims to deliver a return in excess of the FTSE customised Japan Index, the “reference index”, (or such other index as may from time to time replace it) before management fees, while carefully controlling deviation from the reference index. The Fund will invest primarily in shares of Japanese companies included in the reference index. The Fund’s holdings are principally selected to replicate the components of the reference index. The index will not be identically replicated and this can lead to differences in performance. There are no restrictions on the size of the companies in which the Fund may invest. In addition to seeking to reflect the index, the fund manager will make use of investment strategies aimed at enhancing returns. These seek to generate returns based on differences in the prices of securities issued by, or associated with, companies that form part of the reference index. They can include, but are not limited to, liquidity strategies (investing in ‘blocks of stock’ at discounted prices), and relative value strategies (taking advantage of differences between the prices of securities related to the same company. Further details explaining the investment strategies are available on the Funds’ pages on our website (www.janushenderson.com). The Fund may invest the Scheme Property in transferable securities, money market instruments, derivatives and forward transactions, deposits and units in collective investment schemes. Derivatives and forward transactions may be used by the fund for investment purposes, in achieving the enhancements to the index return and for the purposes of efficient portfolio management.

Overview

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

Potential investors must read the prospectus, and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing.

General risks
  • ​The value of the Funds and the income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.
  • ​Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
  • ​You should note that your tax treatment in relation to any investments held outside an ISA will depend on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. Governments may change the tax rules which affect you or the Funds in which you have invested.
  • ​If you invest through a third party provider you are advised to consult them directly as charges, performance and terms and conditions may differ materially.
  • Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
Specific risks
  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • This fund is designed to be used only as one component in several in a diversified investment portfolio. Investors should consider carefully the proportion of their portfolio invested into this fund.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • Derivatives use exposes the Fund to risks different from, and potentially greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in securities and may therefore result in additional loss, which could be significantly greater than the cost of the derivative.
  • Changes in currency exchange rates may cause the value of your investment and any income from it to rise or fall.
  • Measures designed to reduce the impact of certain risks may not be available or may be ineffective.
  • Index Opportunities risk Returns from investing in index enhancing opportunities may vary over time relative to the reference index. The managers do not, however, seek to take high levels of risk and investors should therefore expect the typical level of enhancement of returns to be low. The deduction of ongoing charges and trasaction costs means the fund can be expected to underperform the reference index. Strategies aimed at enhancing returns depend on the manager skill and decision-making; this therefore carries the risk of underperformance if unsuccessful decisions are made.
  • Leverage arises from entering into contracts or derivatives whose terms have the effect of magnifying an outcome, meaning profits and losses from investment can be greater.
  • Any security could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, increasing the risk of investment losses.
