Janus launches INTECH Emerging Markets Managed Volatility Fund


Janus Capital Group has launched the INTECH Emerging Markets Managed Volatility Fund, which seeks to provide excess return over a full market cycle with up to 45 per cent less volatility than the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

The fund, which launched on 17 December, 2014, will be managed by INTECH Investment Management LLC and distributed by Janus.
"The INTECH Emerging Markets Managed Volatility Fund offers fund shareholders the growth potential of emerging markets while targeting above-market returns with lower risk than the benchmark," says Adrian Banner, PhD, CEO and CIO of INTECH. "INTECH's risk-managed investment process helps manage volatility during down markets, when it's needed most, while providing the potential for capital appreciation during normal market conditions."
INTECH's investment team will manage the fund, which is engineered with the intent of providing a smoother investment experience in a historically volatile asset class potentially leading to long-term capital appreciation.
For more than 25 years, INTECH, a global investment manager with more than USD49.4 billion under management (as of September 30, 2014), has focused on delivering long-term returns in excess of the target benchmark, while attempting to reduce relative risk. Using the same disciplined, active mathematical equity investment process, INTECH also offers strategies (low and managed volatility), which, over time, seek market-like or above-market returns with less absolute risk.
"Emerging markets are a notoriously volatile asset class that demands a disciplined, repeatable investment approach," says Drew Elder, SVP, head of US intermediary distribution at Janus. "We're excited to offer clients the capital appreciation potential of emerging markets with the level of volatility management needed to seek excess returns over a full market cycle in a typically high-risk area of the market."
