The Janus Henderson Global Equity Income Fund, which globally manages over A$23 billion in global equity strategies, has been added to BT Wrap and BT Panorama.
The fund aimed to deliver regular quarterly income distributions with the potential for long-term capital growth through its investment in companies with the potential to generate strong and growing levels of free cash flow.
Typically, it actively managed between 50 to 80 companies diversified across geographic regions and industrial sectors.
The fund was already available on AMP North, MyNorth and Netwealth platforms, the firm said, and received a ‘recommended’ rating from both Lonsec and Zenith Investment Partners.
Janus Henderson Australia’s head of retail distribution, Jordan Tang, said his view was that taking a global approach to investing is the best way to maximise dividend growth and minimise the risk to dividends.
“Investing globally provides excellent scope to pick the best stocks to deliver a high and growing income. Not only that, it ensures lower variability in dividends than investing in any one country, meaning that risks are lower,” he said.
“Within the Australian market, the top 20 dividend-paying stocks provide approximately 78 per cent of the market’s total income, with significant concentration in financials and mining stocks. This compares to the top 20 dividend-paying stocks globally that account for just 19.5 per cent of the MSCI World ex Australia’s income.”
