LONDON & DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Janus Henderson Investors (NYSE: JHG, ASX: JHG) announced today the appointment of Greg Wilensky, CFA, as Head of U.S. Fixed Income.
Joining on January 29, 2020, Mr. Wilensky adds more than 20 years of fixed income experience to a strong team of portfolio managers and analysts collaborating globally. As Head of U.S. Fixed Income for Janus Henderson, Mr. Wilensky will oversee the team managing U.S. Multi-Sector Fixed Income strategies and will bring with him the ability to enhance portfolio construction through the investment framework and risk budgeting structure.

It will allow us to remain true to our principles, will further our focus on delivering strong risk-adjusted returns and position us to better build the types of portfolios our clients need in today’s low-yielding environment.
