Steve Weeple, Portfolio Manager on the Edinburgh-based Janus Henderson Global Equities Team, will discuss the team’s approach to identifying high-quality companies. As long-term investors, the team are always looking to invest in companies that are well placed to demonstrate resilience through the economic cycle, or in the face of unforeseen events. Gaining this conviction comes down to a deep understanding of the characteristics that a company and its management exhibit over time. Steve will discuss several of the holdings in the portfolio from this perspective.
John Pattullo (fixed income), John Bennett (European equities) and Ben Lofthouse (global equity income), in an informal fireside chat format, discuss lessons learned from 2018 and what they expect from the coming year. Bringing with them strong opinions and a wealth of experience, the three explore where we go from here and what it means from their different investment perspectives.
Their conversation will include:
• How late cycle are we?
• Is it time to sell tech?
• What are the prospects for Europe?
• What have we learned from market moves in 2018?

Mixed economic data, coupled with monetary tightening, has pushed spreads and yields higher, yet labour markets remain strong and expectations are that economic growth will hold up in 2019. Identifying those credits that can stay the course and avoid those that stumble is critical. In this webcast, Tom Ross, Seth Meyer and Thomas Hanson, high yield portfolio managers at Janus Henderson Investors, explain where we are in the credit cycle and how a bottom-up process of fundamental analysis combined with managing beta through a robust risk-budgeting process can help an investor keep their footing.

The gradual removal of monetary policy accommodation by central banks is removing a price-insensitive buyer from the market and leading to reduced liquidity. Tighter monetary policy is also pushing up shorter-dated bond yields and leading to a reassessment of value on the yield curve. In this webcast, Nick Maroutsos looks at how investors can navigate the new environment for fixed income and chart a potentially less volatile path with their investments.
2018, so far, has been a fairly turbulent environment for fixed income markets, marked by sporadic shocks, which investors have largely treated as being driven by one off or transitory events. However, the list of such transitory episodes continues to grow and the cumulative impact on the fixed income universe poses significant challenges to investors. Thus, the flexibility to seek out the best opportunities and protect against the worst case scenarios without any constraints has never been more important, given the continued presence of historically low yields in the developed world at a time of declining global liquidity.
