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.

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 bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds owned by the fund. Unlike owning individual bonds, there are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning shares of bond funds. The return of principal is not guaranteed due to net asset value fluctuation that is caused by changes in the price of specific bonds held in the fund and selling of bonds within the fund by the portfolio manager(s).

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.

For Perkins Value Plus Income Fund: High-yield/high-risk bonds, also known as "junk" bonds, involve a greater risk of default and price volatility than U.S. Government and other high quality bonds. High-yield/high-risk bonds can experience sudden and sharp price swings which will affect net asset value.

For Perkins Value Plus Income Fund: For a period of three years subsequent to the Fund's commencement of operations, Janus Capital may recover from the Fund fees and expenses previously waived or reimbursed if the Fund's expense ratio, including recovered expenses, falls below the expense limit.

When an expense waiver is in effect, it may have a material effect on the total return or yield, and therefore the ranking and/or rating for the period.

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.
