Investment strategist Frank Uhlenbruch is to leave Janus Henderson after almost 30 years. 

The firm said this was a “planned and phased retirement” for Uhlenbruch, who had spent 28 years at Janus Henderson and almost 40 years in fund management. 

Uhlenbruch would retire in the second half of 2023 and would work closely with new hire Emma Lawson to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

He would be replaced by Lawson as a fixed interest strategist-macroeconomics who would contribute to the investment strategy decision-making process across all portfolios, conduct research for the investment team, and contribute to the generation of active interest rate strategies that help achieve investment performance objectives.

She had previously spent three years at the Treasury Corporation of Victoria as well as seven years at National Australia Bank in the currency investment strategy division. 

Jay Sivapalan, head of Australia fixed interest at Janus Henderson, said: “Emma’s hire was a result of a thoughtful, patient and extensive search. Every member of the Australian fixed interest team was involved in her appointment and reached a unanimous agreement on her selection. We are delighted to welcome such a well-established, seasoned and high-calibre economist. I know every member of our team is looking forward to working with her to deliver exceptional investment outcomes for our clients.

“Whilst Frank will be with us for some time yet in order to ensure a smooth transition, I want to express that it has been a real privilege and pleasure to work alongside him. He has been a valued member of the investment team and has tirelessly put the needs of our clients first over the journey. His experience and friendship will be missed. We look forward to keeping in close contact with him as he embarks on the next chapter and wish him well for the future.”
