Janus Henderson Investors has launched an absolute return fixed income fund to form part of its UK fund range.
The firm claims that “by filling the white space between money market funds and conventional core fixed income” the fund will appeal to investors looking for returns with low volatility.
The Ucits-compliant, sterling-denominated Janus Henderson Absolute Return Fixed Income Fund will invest in a core of shorter maturity globally diverse investment grade securities, alongside a small number of derivatives-based strategies that are used to manage downside risks and generate additional return.
The fund will be co-managed by Nick Maroutsos, co-head of global bonds, Dan Siluk, portfolio manager, and Tim Winstone, credit portfolio manager.
Maroutsos said: “The launch of this fund allows us to optimise our core investments to maximise risk-adjusted returns for investors based in the region.”
