Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Strategic Fixed Income — COVID 19 update

The COVID-19 pandemic will likely prove to be a defining period for investors. We have seen unprecedented dramatic movements in asset prices and economic data. What is going on in the financial markets since the COVID 19 tsunami hit the globe in March? How have different asset classes fared over the period? And, what of the intervention measures by governments and central banks?

Jenna Barnard and John Pattullo will cover these topics and more, sharing their insights into the world of asset allocation and investments in a COVID stricken climate.

The webcast session will also include a review of the performance of the Janus Henderson Strategic Fixed Income range over the period, its current positioning and outlook for the medium term.

    Gordon Mackay & Steve Weeple
    Join Gordon Mackay, Portfolio Manager for the Janus Henderson Global Equity Fund and Steve Weeple, Client Portfolio Manager as they discuss the importance of focusing on a bottom-up approach to finding companies that we believe have underappreciated growth and high barriers to entry at attractive valuations.

    Guy Barnard
    Evolving secular trends including digitalisation, ageing population, shifting consumer preferences and global population growth (to name a few), have changed the future needs and uses of global property from those we know today.

    Join Guy Barnard, Co-Head of Global Property Equities, as he discusses why the property sectors that drove yesterday’s returns will not be those of tomorrow’s. Uncover how a fundamental understanding of the global property sector and actively investing within it are key to delivering outperformance.

  • Teetering on the edge of a double dip Recorded: Oct 13 2020 57 mins
    Tom Ross & Seth Meyer
    Following unprecedented levels of monetary and fiscal stimulus risk markets broadly continued to recover through the third quarter pricing in close to a ‘V-shaped’ economic recovery. September however has seen a pick-up in volatility as coronavirus cases rise again in Europe and geopolitical events such as the US election and Brexit approach. In this presentation, Seth Meyer and Tom Ross, portfolio managers on high yield strategies at Janus Henderson, discuss some of the pressing questions facing the high yield bond asset class, including:

    • How is the economic backdrop feeding through to corporate credit fundamentals?
    • Is this time different from a cyclical perspective across regions, sectors and names?
    • What are the risks and opportunities you see in high yield as we go into year end and beyond?
  • Multi-Sector Income Update: Finding value in today’s fixed income market Recorded: Sep 29 2020 54 mins
    Seth Meyer, John Lloyd & John Kerschner
    A crisis of unprecedented magnitude and speed followed by an equally sharp recovery may leave investors wondering where they can find value in the fixed income markets.

    While opportunities exist, they take deep fundamental research to uncover and we believe now is really the time to be active with your fixed income allocation. There are several uncertainties still facing investors and with this backdrop, being able to spot and take advantage of market dislocations while actively managing risk is paramount.

    Please join Portfolio Managers Seth Meyer, CFA, John Kerschner, CFA and John Lloyd as they discuss:
    Misunderstood areas of the market offering attractive yields
    Opportunities they are finding even amid tight spreads
    How active management can take advantage of the dislocations we the team is still seeing in the market
    This webcast session will also include a review of the performance of the Janus Henderson Multi-Sector Income Fund, its current positioning and outlook for the medium term.

    The second quarter of 2020 was an idyllic environment for corporate bonds following a tumultuous first quarter. In this webcast, Jenna and John will also provide a deep dive into the outperformance of the Janus Henderson Horizon Strategic Bond Fund over the period, its current positioning and outlook for the medium term.

  • Supportive policy and more attractive spreads – what’s not to like? Recorded: Jun 24 2020 49 mins
    Tim Winstone
    Investment grade credit spreads have moved from being at relatively tight levels in January 2020, to the widest quartile three months later. In Europe the spread widening has come from the dual effect of higher investment grade corporate bond yields plus lower government bonds yields, prompting investors to consider whether now is the time to raise allocations to investment grade corporate bonds. In this presentation, Tim Winstone, portfolio manager of Janus Henderson’s European Investment Grade Strategy, tackles some of the questions investors are asking, including:

    • How does investment grade compare to government and high yield markets?
    • Does the technical picture of supportive monetary and fiscal policy outweigh fundamental and economic concerns?
    • How are we positioned and where might the biggest risks and opportunities lie?

    Seth Meyer, John Lloyd & John Kerschner
    Are markets finally starting to wash their hands of the Covid 19 crisis? Credit markets are showing signs of resilience, and concerns over the impact of a second wave of the virus appear to have been replaced with discussions around the path to recovery. So far, we have seen varying degrees of a recovery across different credit asset classes, highlighting the importance of being selective.

    In this webcast, co-managers of the Janus Henderson Multi-Sector Income Strategy discuss the rebound we are witnessing in credit markets, post March 2020, focusing on:

    -the effectiveness of the policymakers’ playbook — short term and long term impacts
    -potential risks that could retest the March market moves
    dispersion and dislocation across credit — opportunities and value?
    -constructing multi sector portfolios to navigate uncertain markets

    They will also review the performance of the strategy with highlights of current positioning and the outlook for the medium term.

    To navigate COVID-19, companies have been forced to work in new ways – a drastic shift underpinned by massive secular growth themes.
