Janus Capital Group Inc. said Monday that it has launched three separately managed account investment strategies for U.S. institutional investors.
The Janus Emerging Markets Equity Portfolio, Janus Global High Yield Portfolio and Janus Global Investment Grade Bond Portfolio were developed in response to client demand for actively managed emerging market equity and global bond strategies, the company said.
The Janus Emerging Markets Equity Portfolio will invest in emerging markets securities and be benchmarked to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The strategy is managed by Wahid Chammas and Matt Hochstetler, who will invest up to 80% in companies domiciled in emerging markets.
The Janus Global High Yield Portfolio and the Janus Global Investment Grade Bond Portfolio, which were announced Friday, are Janus' first two global bond strategies.
The portfolios, which are co-managed by Gibson Smith and Darrell Watters, will use a fundamentally driven investment process focused on credit-orientated investments globally.
The benchmark for the Janus Global High Yield Portfolio is the Barclays Capital Global High Yield Index; the Janus Global Investment Grade Bond Portfolio is benchmarked to the Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Corporate Bond Index.
