Boutique fund manager Alpha Fund Manager has included Janus Henderson’s Global Fixed Interest Total Return Fund to its global fixed interest portfolio.
Janus Henderson’s actively managed global fixed interest fund invests across fixed interest asset classes and markets with a duration profile between zero to six years and is hedged to the Australian dollar to reduce currency risk, according to a statement from Janus Henderson.
Janus Henderson Australia head of distribution Matt Gaden said the fund had been “well supported” on a number of platforms such as ANZ Grow Wrap, BT Wrap, OneAnswer and Netwealth since its launch in July 2014.
“Investor demand for a quality global fixed interest fund that allows exposure to a wide range of fixed interest securities has been further supported by the inclusion from Alpha Fund Managers,” he said.
Alpha Fund Manager portfolio manager Julien Brodie added, “We selected the Janus Henderson Global Fixed Interest Total Return Fund because of the quality and insight of the investment team, defensive characteristics and importantly its ability to navigate market rotations and deliver consistent outperformance across time.”
The fund delivered 6.9 per cent per annum and 5.1 per cent per annum to investors over one and three years net of fees, respectively, the statement said.
Janus Henderson Investors managers over $101 billion in fixed interests (as of 30 September 2017) for institutional and retail investors across the globe.
