Janus Henderson Group plc (NYSE/ASX: JHG) today announced it has launched the Janus Henderson Sustainable Multi-Asset Fund (JSMFX). The Fund offers Class D Shares and is available to Janus Henderson Investors (JHI) Direct Channel investors in the U.S.
This active, multi-asset portfolio seeks to achieve its investment objective of long-term capital appreciation by investing in underlying Janus Henderson ETFs/mutual funds that incorporate certain ESG factors in their principal investment strategies. The fund-of-funds structure incorporates both strategic and dynamic asset allocation to gain exposure to equities and fixed income securities through Janus Henderson’s proprietary sustainable ETFs and mutual funds.
The Fund is managed by Portfolio Managers Nicholas Harper, CFA, and Oliver Blackbourn, CFA.
“We frequently survey our direct investors about their sentiments and needs, and we understand there is demand for asset allocation and ESG products. We are taking action by adding the Janus Henderson Sustainable Multi-Asset Fund designed with our clients’ needs in mind,” said Russ Shipman, Head of Retirement Sales & Strategy.
This offering follows last year’s launch of five actively managed sustainable ETFs for U.S. investors and continues the firm’s commitment to provide investors with the building blocks to integrate sustainability into any portfolio and help investors manage wealth with a sense of purpose.
“At Janus Henderson, we believe in investing for the future, not borrowing from it. Our active approach puts our clients first as we focus on delivering strong, risk-adjusted returns, and for certain products, through a sustainable lens,” said Paul LaCoursiere, Global Head of ESG Investments.
The Fund’s investment approach is to maximize return, while maintaining a level of risk that corresponds generally to the benchmark index. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective of long-term capital appreciation by investing in underlying JHI ETFs and mutual funds that incorporate certain environmental, social, and governance factors in their principal investment strategies.
