Japan’s Dai-ichi Life Insurance agrees to invest in Janus Capital Group portfolios and distribute Janus products, in return for a 15%-plus stake.
Janus Capital establishes its first on-the-ground Asia investment presence in Hiroshi Yoh as portfolio manager and CEO of its Singapore subsidiary, subject to regulatory approval.
In a co-published feature, Janus Capital Group addresses the challenge of maintaining excess return potential while having reasonable expectations of modest tracking error.
The primary focus in manager choice should be analysis of investment process, with historical performance relegated to a secondary role, says INTECH Investment Management.
The likelihood of upward pressure on interest rates makes an active approach with an emphasis on corporate credit more appealing than a passive strategy, writes Janus.
