( — Janus Henderson announces the recruitment of a team of four people specializing in emerging market debt (“EMD”) within its Global Fixed Income team.
The team is made up of Bent Elvin Lystbaek, Jacob Ellinge Nielsen, Thomas Haugaard and Sorin Pir?u, portfolio managers each with a decade of investment experience in emerging markets.
The team members join from Danske Bank Asset Management, where they managed €6 billion of emerging debt hard currency strategies for institutional and retail clients. They will join Janus Henderson on September 1, 2022 and will report to Jim Cielinski, Global Head of Fixed Income Management. The team will be based in Copenhagen, Denmark, which will strengthen Janus Henderson’s presence in Northern Europe.

The integration of this team within Janus Henderson’s workforce underlines the company’s dual desire to meet clients’ needs in terms of strategies investing in emerging markets and to strengthen its global range of Fixed Income products.

“This new EMD expertise complements the Global Fixed Income team’s current strengths in corporate credit, international fixed income and equities within emerging markets. We are delighted to welcome Bent, Jacob, Thomas and Sorin at Janus Henderson and look forward to bringing their expertise to our clients,” said Jim Cielinski, Global Head of Fixed Income.

Since its inception in 2013, the “EMD” team’s investment process has consistently produced good results for clients. This team seeks to generate alpha through country allocation and stock selection, with a focus on credit risk premia. The team integrates environmental, social and governance factors into the research process and considers quantitative and qualitative factors to determine an internal and predictive score.

Ali Dibadj, CEO of Janus Henderson, adds: “Having a world-class EMD team demonstrates our commitment to meeting our customers’ needs and supporting the growth of our business. We will continue to seek internal and external ways to achieve this”.
