Janus Adds an International Fund

by: InvestmentWires Staff, 

Janus has added an international fund to its roster. The Janus Adviser International Forty Fund, which invests in 30-50 companies in developed and emerging markets, comes in two share classes. "A" shares sport an expense ratio of 150 bps, and "C" shares come with a 225 bps expense ratio.

Company Press Release

Janus Capital Group Inc. (NYSE: JNS) today introduced Janus Adviser International Forty Fund (JFFAX), a concentrated portfolio that seeks long-term growth of capital by investing directly in 30-50 companies across developed and emerging markets.

The fund manager plans to leverage Janus' proprietary research process in an attempt to identify and capitalize on international firms with attractive long-term growth prospects and strong and sustainable competitive advantages. The fund's benchmark is the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) All Country World ex-U.S. Index(SM).

The new fund is designed to leverage the best international investment ideas of Janus' equity research team, according to Jonathan Coleman, co-chief investment officer of Janus.

"At Janus, we believe investing with conviction can potentially lead to superior returns over time," Coleman said. "By concentrating the fund's investments in a limited number of holdings, we think our most compelling stock picks could possibly make more meaningful contributions to the fund's overall returns."

Portfolio Manager Laurent Saltiel will manage Janus Adviser International Forty Fund. Saltiel, who also co-manages Janus Adviser International Equity Fund, joined Janus in 2002 as an equity analyst covering basic material, consumer staple and retail securities. Prior to that, he was an analyst with RS Investments in San Francisco. Saltiel has a master's degree in business administration from Harvard University and is fluent in French, English and Spanish.

"I look for businesses with high or improving returns on invested capital, solid free cash flow generation and management teams that create value for shareholders," Saltiel said. "A strong valuation discipline is a fundamental part of my investment strategy. I believe this approach will help ensure that the fund invests only in stocks that I feel offer the most attractive risk/reward opportunities."
