Janus Launches Adaptive Global Allocation Fund
  • It aims to provide investors total returns by dynamically allocating assets across a portfolio of global equity and fixed-income investments
  • Ashwin Alankar, Global Head of Asset Allocation and Risk Management, and Enrique Chang, Chief Investment Officer, Equities and Asset Allocation, are the fund's portfolio managers

Janus Capital Group recently announced the launch of the Janus Adaptive Global Allocation Fund that aims to provide investors total returns by dynamically allocating assets across a portfolio of global equity and fixed-income investments.

Ashwin Alankar, Global Head of Asset Allocation and Risk Management, and Enrique Chang, Chief Investment Officer, Equities and Asset Allocation, are the fund's portfolio managers. Chief Investment Strategist Myron Scholes, Ph.D., co-led the research and development of the fund with Alankar and will contribute to the overall investment strategy.

The Janus Adaptive Global Allocation Fund is designed to adapt allocations actively based on forward-looking views regarding extreme market movements, both positive and negative.

"While most investment approaches look for average outcomes, this adaptive global allocation fund seeks to manage outcomes that have the largest impact on growth, namely left and right tail events," Alankar said.

The launch of the Janus Adaptive Global Allocation Fund furthers Janus' Chief Executive Officer Dick Weil's diversification strategy, which included the July 2014 hiring of Alankar and Myron Scholes to begin designing asset allocation options for clients.
