High Yield: Passing the Baton from Beta to Alpha

Plan Talk: How to Use Client Motivations to Encourage Better Social Security Decisions
Many American workers fear that the Social Security trust could be depleted in the not-so-distant future, which may lead some individuals to collect their benefits early – a decision that can significantly reduce their earned benefit. In this episode of Plan Talk, Retirement Director Ben Rizzuto explains research-based techniques that can be used to help ensure people more fully consider their options and make better decisions regarding when to claim this important earned benefit.
Plan Talk: Assessing Fixed Income Options in Retirement Plan Lineups
In the latest episode of Plan Talk, Retirement Director Ben Rizzuto and Fixed Income Product Specialist Jessica Leoncini discuss current plan menu designs and investment trends in defined contribution (DC) plans. Referencing the findings from a survey Janus Henderson recently conducted with the Plan Sponsor Council of America, they explain how the lack of adequate fixed income options in many defined contribution plans could affect participants’ ability to retire comfortably – particularly with global interest rates at historic lows.
Global Perspectives: Making Sense of the U.S. Election
On November 5, Janus Henderson Investors hosted a panel discussion exploring the market implications of the 2020 U.S. election. Although the final vote was still unknown at the time, Democrat Joe Biden was projected to take the White House and Republicans were expected to remain in control of the Senate, even as polls prior to the election had suggested that a Democratic sweep, or “blue wave,” was likely. With that backdrop in mind, our panel of investment professionals – Ashwin Alankar, Ph.D., Head of Global Asset Allocation; Jim Cielinski, CFA, Global Head of Fixed Income; and Matt Peron, Director of Research – joined moderator Bruce Koepfgen, Head of North America, to discuss what the result could mean for financial markets and investors.
