Janus Henderson UK Absolute Return Fund

A Acc ISIN code: GB00B5KKCS68

Investment objective

The Fund aims to provide an absolute (more than zero) return, typically over a 12-month period. An absolute return performance is not guaranteed over this, or any other, time period and consequently your capital is at risk. The Fund will typically invest at least 60% in shares or derivatives of UK companies . The Fund takes long positions on shares it believes will rise and short positions in shares it believes will fall. A substantial proportion of the Fund's assets may at any time consist of cash and near cash. The Fund may also invest up to 40% in shares or derivatives of companies outside of the UK. The Fund makes extensive use of derivatives to obtain both its long and short investment exposure.

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
  • The fund may invest up to 40% in shares or derivatives of share of companies outside the UK
  • Investment management techniques that have worked well in normal market conditions could prove ineffective or detrimental at other times.
  • 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.
  • If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
  • 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.
  • If the Fund or a specific share class of the Fund seeks to reduce risks (such as exchange rate movements), the measures designed to do so may be ineffective, unavailable or detrimental.
  • The Fund involves a high level of buying and selling activity and as such will incur a higher level of trading costs than a fund that trades less frequently.
  • 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.
General information

Funds incur costs as a necessary part of buying and selling the underlying investments, these are otherwise known as portfolio transaction costs, and include charges such as broker commission and Stamp Duty. View the portfolio transaction costs across the Henderson UK Fund range.
