Who should consider this fund

Investors seeking an alternative fund that targets absolute returns with low correlations to stocks and bonds.

  • Broad diversified exposure to equity, fixed income, currency, and commodity return drivers
  • Returns less dependent on equity and fixed income markets, which we believe will result in "true diversification"
  • Seeks to reduce overall portfolio volatility and offer investors a smoother ride

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.

For Janus Diversified Alternatives Fund: Investments in commodities, commodity-linked notes, securities derivatives, futures, foreign securities, short sales and investments through a nonregistered subsidiary provide exposure to certain special risks, including greater volatility and loss of interest and principal, and may not be appropriate for all investors. Commodities are speculative and may fluctuate widely based on a variety of factors, including market movements, economic events and supply and demand disruptions. Derivatives involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying securities, including gains or losses which, as a result of leverage, can be substantially greater than the derivatives' original cost. Short sales are speculative transactions with potentially unlimited losses, and the use of leverage can magnify the effect of losses.

Holding a meaningful portion of assets in cash or cash equivalents may negatively affect performance.

For Janus Diversified Alternatives Fund: Janus Capital does not have prior experience managing a risk premia investment strategy. There is a risk that the Fund's investments will correlate with stocks and bonds to a greater degree than anticipated, and the investment process may not achieve the desired results. The Fund may underperform during up markets and be negatively affected in down markets. Diversification does not assure a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.

Holdings are subject to change without notice.
