Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. This is not a recommendation to sell; however, if you are thinking of adding to your investments, we believe the Wealth Shortlist is a good place to start. View funds on the Wealth Shortlist »

We removed this fund from the Wealth 150+ in February 2018 when Chris Burvill stepped down as co-manager. Stephen Payne, who was appointed co-manager in July 2016, continues to manage the fund.

We believe the fund still has the potential to deliver good returns. However, for the Wealth 150+ we seek managers with long, successful track records and the potential to outperform their respective benchmark or peer group over the long run. We originally supported this fund because of the experience and track record of Chris Burvill. We don't believe Stephen Payne currently has a long or strong enough track record in his own right.

Our view on the sector

The Mixed and Flexible Investment sectors could be the answer for investors who want to leave the asset allocation decisions to an expert. Funds in these sectors invest a certain amount of their portfolio in shares, from 0% to 35% in the case of the Mixed Investment 0-35% Shares Sector, 20% to 60% for the Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares Sector, 40% to 85% for the Mixed Investment 40-85% Shares Sector, and 0% to 100% for the Flexible Investment Sector. Any proportion of the fund not invested in shares can be invested in bonds, cash, currencies, commodities or property. Funds within these sectors can be very different from each other so they'll perform differently too. Each should be looked at on its own merits, taking account of your investment objectives and the amount of risk you want to take.

Performance Analysis

The fund has performed similarly to the average fund in the peer group since Stephen Payne was appointed co-manager. He has some previous experience running equity and bond portfolios, which mainly includes a number of UK equity income funds at Santander. We would like to see him build a longer track record running a multi-asset portfolio before becoming more positive on this fund.

Investment Philosophy

The manager invests in shares, bonds and cash. The shares provide long-term growth potential and some income. The bonds and cash limit some of the ups and downs associated with investing only in shares, while the bonds also generate some income.

Process and Portfolio Construction

Stephen Payne uses a simple investment approach. He considers wider economic factors, including economic growth, inflation, and interest rates, then changes how the fund is invested depending on his views. He can invest up to 60% of the fund in shares, with a focus on higher-yielding UK companies. The remainder is largely invested in UK government and corporate bonds and cash. The manager has the flexibility to invest in higher-risk high yield high-risk bonds, but these have tended to make up a very small proportion of the fund.

Stephen Payne has the support of Janus Henderson's Global Equity Income team, as well as John Pattullo and Jenna Barnard, two of the group's senior bond fund managers. The final investment decisions will rest with Stephen Payne, however. Please note the fund's charges can be taken from capital, which can increase the yield, but reduces the potential for capital growth.

Fund Management Group Comment

Henderson was founded in 1934, and in 1990 it acquired Touche Remnant. In March 1998 Henderson itself was acquired by AMP, the Australian financial services company, but was subsequently demerged as an independent company in 2003. Henderson Group plc has been a listed company on the London Stock Exchange since December 2003. In April 2009 Henderson acquired New Star and in 2011 it acquired Gartmore. These acquisitions significantly strengthened its retail fund business, providing greater depth of fund range and investment talent.
