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 content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. 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. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
