Please consider the charges, risks, expenses and investment objectives carefully before investing. Please see a prospectus , or if available, a summary prospectus containing this and other information. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.

A Fund's performance may be affected by risks that include those associated with nondiversification, non-investment grade debt securities, high-yield/high-risk securities, undervalued or overlooked companies, investments in specific industries or countries and potential conflicts of interest. Additional risks to a Fund may also include, but are not limited to, those associated with investing in foreign securities, emerging markets, initial public offerings, real estate investment trusts (REITs), derivatives, short sales, commodity-linked investments and companies with relatively small market capitalizations. Each Fund has different risks. Please see a Janus prospectus for more information about risks, Fund holdings and other details.

Funds that invest in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) may be subject to a higher degree of market risk because of concentration in a specific industry, sector or geographic region. REITs may be subject to risks including, but not limited to: legal, political, liquidity, interest rate risks, a decline in the value of real estate, risks related to economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property owned by the trust and defaults by borrowers. To the extent the Funds invest in foreign REITs, the Funds may be subject to fluctuations in currency rates or political or economic conditions in a particular country.

Investments in derivatives can be highly volatile and involve additional risks than if the underlying securities were held directly. Such risks include gains or losses which, as a result of leverage, can be substantially greater than the derivatives' original cost. There is also a possibility that derivatives may not perform as intended, which can reduce opportunity for gain or result in losses by offsetting positive returns in other securities.

Holdings are subject to change without notice.
