Janus Henderson Cautious Managed fund loses Elite Rating

Janus Henderson announced this week that Chris Burvill, manager of the Janus Henderson Cautious Managed fund, is to take an extended period of leave from the fund for medical reasons.

Chris has run the fund since 2011, with the help of co-manager, Stephen Payne, since 2016. Stephen will continue to manage the fund in Chris’s absence and will have the support of fixed income managers John Pattullo and Jenna Barnard.

Darius McDermott, managing director of FundCalibre, commented: “Unfortunately, the minimum three-year track record on this fund is only attributable to Chris, so the fund will have to lose its Elite Rating. We wish Chris all the best and hope he makes a full recovery from his health issues.”

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
