Why Invest in the Fund


Our teams of dedicated sector specialists conduct independent, differentiated research to construct unique sector portfolios that are combined to form a diversified fund. This design allows investors to benefit directly from the insights and expertise of Janus’ equity research team.


Each of our experienced global sector teams builds a high-conviction portfolio of their best ideas, regardless of market cap, geography or subsector. All ideas and position sizes are debated and fully vetted before entry into the portfolio.


This Fund's disciplined investment process is designed to minimize macro risks by aligning sector allocations with the benchmark. This allows fundamental, bottom-up stock selection within each sector to be the primary driver of returns.

10 Year Holdings Based Sector Attribution (9/29/06 - 12/30/16)
Top-Decile performance ranking since inception
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Sector portfolios account for equity holdings only and as shown are not strategies offered by Janus. Sectors are defined by Janus, based upon how Janus has structured its research teams. Janus consistently applies its own classification methodology to all securities in the indices and in Janus portfolios. Janus classification will vary from other standardized classifications such as Global Industry Classification System (GICS), Russell, Bloomberg, etc. Performance attribution is equity only and does not include cash. Total returns are gross of advisory fees and may differ from actual return as it is based only on end-of-day holdings in the portfolio.
Morningstar percentile ranking based on the Fund's "parent" share class (typically that with the longest history).
