Brad Slingerlend, co-portfolio manager of the $881 million Janus Global Technology Fund, and Thomas Malley, co-portfolio manager of the $848 million Janus Global Life Sciences Fund, will both leave Janus Capital Group on May 11, according to a letter to investors. Mr. Slingerlend will pursue other opportunities, and Mr. Malley will move into philanthropic interests, confirmed spokeswoman Shelley Peterson. The departures are unrelated, said Ms. Peterson.
Barney Wilson, co-portfolio manager of the technology fund, will become its sole portfolio manager, and Andy Acker, co-portfolio manager of the life sciences fund, will become its sole manager, said Ms. Peterson. The firm will bring in two additional research analysts for each fund, she said.
