Janus Henderson makes changes to funds as part of integration

Janus Henderson makes changes to funds as part of integration

Janus Henderson has announced changes to its fund range as part of continued integration plans following its mega-merger with Janus Capital in May. 

Writing to advisers, the firm said it will rename all Henderson Luxembourg, Ireland and UK-domiciled funds and fund umbrella structures to Janus Henderson but that no operational changes will occur.

Some funds will see more material name alterations to reflect amendmends in their objectives. Their risk profile and investment process will remain unaffected, however.

The £593 million Henderson Global Care Growth fund, managed by Hamish Chamberlayne, will be renamed to Janus Henderson Global Sustainable Equity fund and revise its policy to remove reference to wider range of investable assets and income.

Similarly, the Henderson Global Growth (£504 million), Global Care UK Income (£192 million) and Institutional Global Care Managed (£264 million) funds will also see revisions to their investment objectives and policy to better reflect the investment process, according to the firm.

They will be renamed to Janus Henderson Global Equity, UK Responsible Income and Institutional Global Responsible Managed fund, respectively, to better demonstrate their investment philosophy.

Completed in May, the merger created a company of $331 billion (£249 billion), expected to deliver cost synergies of $110 million.
