* Information Regarding Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers >

Returns quoted are past performance and do not guarantee future results; current performance may be lower or higher. Investment returns and principal value will vary; there may be a gain or loss when shares are sold.

Net expense ratios reflect the expense waiver, if any, Janus Capital has contractually agreed to through 2/1/15.

Performance shown for Class A Shares at Maximum Offering Price (MOP) includes the Fund's maximum sales charge of 5.75%. Performance shown at Net Asset Value (NAV) does not include this sales charge and would have been lower had this sales charge been taken into account.

Returns greater than one year are annualized.

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.

The expense ratios shown reflect estimated annualized expenses that the Fund expects to incur during its initial fiscal year.

This fund may have significant exposure to emerging markets. In general, emerging market investments have historically been subject to significant gains and/or losses. As such, the Fund's returns and NAV may be subject to volatility.

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.

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.

The Fund 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.

The portfolio holdings and characteristics presented, per Janus Policy, reflect the portfolio's equity exposure as a result of its investments, including its investments in swaps, but do not include any other derivative instruments the portfolio may have invested in during the period.

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

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.
