Janus Henderson Investors (NYSE/ASX: JHG) today announced it has launched the Janus Henderson Global Sustainable Equity Fund, an open-end mutual fund, as an extension of its existing Global Sustainable Equity strategy for US investors.
Hamish Chamberlayne, CFA and Aaron Scully, CFA will co-manage the fund.
The inception of the Global Sustainable Equity strategy was in 1991, and Hamish has been managing the strategy since 2012.
"We believe that a sustainable and responsible investment approach should not compromise the potential for long-term performance. Our analysis identifies quality companies that are supportive of a sustainable global economy," said Hamish Chamberlayne, CFA, Portfolio Manager at Janus Henderson Investors.
"Janus Henderson has a history of delivering competitive, active returns in its Global Sustainable Equity strategy, previously offered in Europe. Today we are very excited to be announcing that we are extending that effort under the same established and experienced team to our clients in the US through an open-ended mutual fund and a Managed Account option," said Suzanne Cain, Global Head of Distribution at Janus Henderson Investors.
The mutual fund is now available to direct investors and expected to be available subsequently on intermediary platforms. In addition, the Global Sustainable Equity strategy is offered in the US as a Managed Account option on certain intermediary platforms.
