AUSTRALIA - Janus Capital has confirmed it is to open an office in Australia to target institutional investors in Australasia, as exclusively revealed in Global Pensions' February edition.
The Melbourne office will be managed by new head of Australia, John Landau. He will focus on developing relationships with superannuation and government funds and investment consultants.
Janus CEO Eric Gerth said: “The Melbourne office reflects the significant potential we anticipate for our global equity strategies in Australia and our commitment to building our institutional and subadvised business outside the US.”
Landau joined the company last month from Bank of Ireland Asset Management where he was responsible for building institutional business in Australia and Asia Pacific ex Japan.
Landau commented: “I am confident Australian institutions will be as receptive to our US and global strategies as institutional investors in America have been for decades.”
