Enrique Chang was named chief investment officer of equities and asset allocation at Janus Capital Group, effective in September, confirmed spokeswoman Jane Ingalls.
In the new position, Mr. Chang will oversee equity, risk-management and alternatives teams for Janus.
In equities, Mr. Chang will replace Jonathan Coleman, who has been named head of growth equities and will focus solely on portfolio management. Mr. Coleman was previously co-CIO, equities.
Mr. Chang was CIO and executive vice president of American Century Investments. Mr. Chang departed effective April 5, although he will be available to assist with the transition to a new CIO, according to spokesman Chris Doyle.
Mr. Doyle said a search for Mr. Chang's replacement is being initiated, and internal and external candidates will be considered. Until then, American Century's six discipline CIOs will report to president and CEO Jonathan Thomas until a new CIO is named.
American Century's six disclipine CIOs are Phil Davidson, U.S. value equity; David Hollond, U.S. growth equity-mid and small cap; Mark Kopinski, global and non-U.S. equity; Dave MacEwen, fixed income; Scott Wittman, asset allocation and quantitative equity; and Greg Woodhams, U.S. growth equity-large cap.
