Henderson EM chief to take on Janus fund

Henderson EM chief to take on Janus fund

Glen Finegan and Stephen Deane is to assume responsibility for the Janus Emerging Markets fund following the departure of Citywire A-rated Hiroshi Yoh, Citywire Selector has learned.

According to a spokesperson for Janus Henderson, the Dublin-domiciled fund is in the process of being transferred to Finegan, who is head of EM equity, and portfolio manager Stephen Deane.

Hiroshi Yoh stepped down from the firm earlier this month. He had overseen several funds covering Asia and emerging market equity and was named lead on the Janus Emerging Markets fund in August 2012.

It had been understood that Yoh’s former co-manager on the EM fund, Dan Raghoonundon, would remain on the fund, but that doesn’t now appear to be the case.

According to a factsheet for the fund dated April 2017, the fund had $138.9 million in assets under management.

The Janus Emerging Markets fund returned 23.7% in US dollar terms over the three years to the end of May 2017. This compares to a rise of 28.7% by the MSCI EM (Emerging Markets) TR USD over the same timeframe.
