Janus Henderson has announced the appointment of Ashleigh Lane as an institutional sales director in its growing Australian team, alongside the internal appointment of an institutional sales associate. 

Lane joins from Capital Group, where she was a managing director responsible for leading its institutional business in Australia and New Zealand. 

In this newly created role, she will be expanding Janus Henderson’s institutional business in Australia, creating partnership opportunities and strengthening client relationships. 

She will be based in Sydney and report to Tom Kelly, head of institutional distribution for Australia.

Matt Gaden, the firm’s Australia head, notes the institutional market has long been a key strategic priority for Janus Henderson.

“Ashleigh knows the institutional market extremely well and understands the sophisticated needs of our clients in this space, so I am delighted that she has chosen to join Janus Henderson in this exciting phase of growth for us,” Gaden said.

The firm has also made the internal appointment of Sophie Nelson as an institutional sales associate. She previously worked in the Janus Henderson Australian marketing team for four years.

In the new role, Nelson will contribute to the development and execution of the firm’s strategic plan to further develop relationships with institutional investors across Australia and New Zealand. Prior to Janus Henderson, she held roles at Hyperion Asset Management and InvestSMART.

Gaden added: “The appointment of Ashleigh combined with the addition of Sophie to the institutional team demonstrates our dedication to growing our partnerships with our institutional clients and our ambition to increase market share in this area.” 

Earlier this year, Janus Henderson appointed Ali Dibadj as its new chief executive following the departure of Dick Weil, who held the role for 12 years. 

It also saw the departure of investment strategist Frank Uhlenbruch after almost 30 years with the firm.
