Janus Henderson Strategic Income is managed by a strong pair of managers who have had success utilizing a flexible mandate across the funds it manages. That said, fees are above-average and the team’s decision to carry less risk in the future will likely affect its return profile. All told, the fund remains a solid option and earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Bronze.

Lead managers John Pattullo and Jenna Barnard serve as Janus Henderson’s co-heads of strategic fixed income and have managed this strategy since December 2008. They are supported by a large team of analysts and are increasingly leveraging the firm’s resources added from the Janus-Henderson Global merger in 2017. The duo has worked together since 2004.
