Janus Capital Group introduced the Janus Adviser International Equity Fund. The new fund is based on the Janus international equity commingled pool, an institutional strategy, said spokesman James Aber. The fund's portfolio managers will be Julian Pick, Doug Kirkpatrick and Laurent Saltiel, who are co-portfolio managers on the international equity commingled pool and equity research analysts on Janus' international equity team, Mr. Aber said. Janus does not disclose assets on the commingled pools, Mr. Aber said.
"This fund is a great fit in our international product lineup," Jonathan Coleman, co-CIO of Janus, said in a news release. "We think this is an attractive investment option for intermediary and institutional clients seeking a broadly diversified international portfolio."
