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.

Returns include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

Ratings and/or rankings may be based, in part, on the performance of a predecessor fund or share class and are calculated by Morningstar using a performance calculation methodology that differs from that used by Janus. Differences in the methodologies may lead to variances in calculating total performance returns, in some cases this variance may be significant, thereby potentially affecting the rating/ranking of the Fund[s]. The rating/rankings are displayed for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon when making investment decisions.

This Portfolio has a performance-based management fee that adjusts up or down based on the Portfolio’s performance relative to an approved benchmark index over a performance measurement period. See the Portfolio’s Prospectus or Statement of Additional Information for more details.

A portfolio’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. Additional risks to a portfolio(s) 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 and companies with relatively small market capitalizations. Each Portfolio has different risks. Please see a Janus prospectus or janus.com/info for more information about risks, portfolio holdings and other details.

The Portfolio will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets, measured at the time of purchase, in the type of securities described by its name.

Holdings are subject to change without notice.

Returns shown do not represent actual returns since they do not include insurance charges. Returns shown would have been lower had they included insurance charges.

©2014 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of the funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Morningstar Rating™ may differ among share classes of a mutual fund as a result of different sales loads and/or expense structures. It may be based, in part, on the performance of a predecessor Fund.

Ratings and Rankings are for the share class shown only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

The Morningstar Style BoxTM reveals a fund's investment strategy. For equity funds the vertical axis shows the market capitalization of the stocks owned and the horizontal axis shows investment style (value, blend or growth).

A Fund's portfolio may differ significantly from the securities held in the index. The index is unmanaged and not available for direct investment; therefore its performance does not reflect the expenses associated with the active management of an actual portfolio.
