Client Commitment

Janus Balanced Portfolio’s dynamic asset allocation strategy has the flexibility to defensively position ahead of market volatility while seeking strong risk-adjusted returns. Unlike many competitor products, where asset allocations are constrained by static targets, the Portfolio’s asset allocations may vary between 35% and 65% equities depending on market conditions.

Why Invest in the Portfolio


The Portfolio’s portfolio managers make allocation decisions based on their view of overall market risk and careful examination of individual security valuations across equity and fixed income markets.


Janus equity and fixed income analysts work side-by-side covering the same six global sectors, facilitating deeper analysis of a company's fundamental outlook and understanding of management's true intentions.


The end result is a multi-asset, core holding portfolio offering the potential for long-term capital appreciation with the flexibility to navigate uncertain and volatile markets.
