Veteran O’Gorman latest to leave Janus Henderson

Veteran O’Gorman latest to leave Janus Henderson

Stuart O’Gorman has become the latest senior portfolio manager to leave Janus Henderson.

Wealth Manager sister title Citywire Selector has revealed that the technology specialist is departing after 16 years with the company.

O’Gorman follows in the wake of Stephen Thariyan, the head of credit at Henderson, who was revealed to be leaving the group earlier this week.

The formerly Citywire AAA-rated manager had overseen several technology and global equity funds during his tenure and was most recently named on the Henderson HF Global Technology fund, among others.

A spokesperson confirmed that O'Gorman will stay with the company until the end of the first quarter of 2018. It is understood he is then taking a 'career break' which will be followed by a pursuit of other opportunities.

His co-manager Alison Porter will remain in a senior role on the technology funds, while Graeme Clark and Richard Clode have been assigned as portfolio managers within the team. The investment philosophy will remain the same.

For his combined performance across five funds, O’Gorman has returned 47.8% in US dollar terms over the three years to the end of August 2017. This compares to a 39.3% return by the average of the 117 managers active in the global technology sector with a three-year track record.

Several fund manager changes have been made since the two firms announced the merger in October of last year. This includes changes on US equity, Asia Pacific equity and real estate strategies.

Jim Cielinski was also hired from Columbia Threadneedle in late September to serve as global head of fixed income, which saw him displace Janus manager Kumat Paghal in the role.
