Janus launches Multi-Sector Income Fund


Janus Capital Group has launched the Janus Multi-Sector Income Fund, which seeks to identify compelling income-generating opportunities across fixed income sectors.

The fund, which launched on 28 February 2014, will be managed by Janus Capital Management.
Janus Multi-Sector Income Fund (JMUTX) employs an active management approach that balances a focus on high current income with risk considerations at the security and portfolio level. The fund will typically hold between 35 per cent and 65 per cent below investment grade bonds and has wide flexibility to invest across all sectors of the global fixed income market.
"For more than 25 years, we have successfully managed our flagship Janus Flexible Bond Fund for clients by focusing on risk-adjusted returns and capital preservation. We are excited to extend our fundamental, bottom-up, credit-oriented approach to the Janus Multi-Sector Income Fund,” says Gibson Smith, chief investment officer of Janus Fixed Income.
Janus Fixed Income manages USD30.3bn for clients globally with experience in multi-sector investing dating back to inception of the Janus Flexible Bond Fund in 1987. The Janus Flexible Bond Fund is an all-weather, core holding that, relative to the Morningstar Intermediate-Term Bond category, placed in the 12th percentile for the past one year, 19th percentile over three years, 45th percentile over five years, and 10th percentile over 10 years based on total returns.
Janus Multi-Sector Income Fund will be managed by Seth Meyer, portfolio manager; John Kerschner, global head of securitized products and portfolio manager; and John Lloyd, global head of credit research and portfolio manager. The portfolio managers average more than 18 years of investment experience.
"We seek to provide the consistent and high income that is often associated with high-yield securities, but in a multi-sector framework that allows the flexibility to position defensively ahead of market volatility," says Meyer. "We believe the combination of income and defensive flexibility will help our clients meet their long-term goals."
