Janus Henderson was formed in 2017 from the merger of two complementary businesses that trace their roots back much further. US-based Janus Capital Group was founded in 1969 and had a strong research-based approach. Henderson Global Investors was founded in the UK in 1934 and also offered largely bottom-up, analysis-based strategies. The core client bases of each group were regionally-distinct and the merger of equals formed a truly global platform – global in capabilities and global in mindset.
Janus Henderson is a global active manager, with over $374 billion in assets under management, a broad spectrum of investment capabilities, and a distribution team with global reach. These capabilities are particularly important at a time of such change at an industry, regulatory, and client level. The firm’s evolution means it is well placed to share learnings from different markets and offer solutions appropriate to varying client needs.
As a recently merged company, one of our focuses is ESG: our global investment teams take their role as investors very seriously; our investment managers know their clients and their markets and have embedded the tenets of ESG in their approach across the differing asset classes.
