What are international & global funds?

They may sound similar, but international and global funds are different. International funds invest in companies located outside of the United States, while global funds can invest in both U.S. and overseas companies. By investing beyond our borders, shareholders can potentially gain access to some of the best companies in the world.

Investing without boundaries

We live in a global economy - we are all connected. Think about some of the world's largest companies - BP, DaimlerChrysler, Bayer Group, Nestle, Toyota, Siemens Group. They're multi-national and, in these cases, foreign-owned. In fact, almost half of the world's investment opportunities exist outside the United States.

The lure of international investing

As an investor, why limit your investment opportunities? Investing globally offers the potential for U.S. investors to participate in the enormous economic growth beyond our nation's borders.

The role of international and global funds in your portfolio

Studies have shown that global diversification (i.e. investing beyond the U.S.) may reduce portfolio risk and increase returns. That's because the stock markets of different countries do not move in lock-step. So by building a well-rounded portfolio that includes global and/or international funds, you'll expand your investment opportunities and help manage overall risk.

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.

An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund.

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.

There is no assurance the stated objective(s) will be met.

Foreign securities are subject to additional risks including currency fluctuations, political and economic uncertainty, increased volatility and differing financial and information reporting standards, all of which are magnified in emerging markets.

Diversification and asset allocation do not assure a profit or eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses. Investment decisions should be based on an individual's own goals, time horizon and tolerance for risk.
