Janus Henderson reshuffles global equities team

Janus Henderson reshuffles global equities team

Janus Henderson has appointed two new co-heads of its equities division, the company has announced.

Its current global head of equities, Graham Kitchen, is leaving the industry to pursue other interests in the charitable sector. He is set to remain within the team until the end of March 2018 to ensure a smooth transition.

Citywire + rated George Maris and Alex Crooke will replace Kitchen. Maris will be responsible for leading equities in the US and Crooke will be responsible for leading equities in the EMEA and APAC regions. Both will report directly to the firm’s global CIO, Enrique Chang.

The duo will also join the Janus Henderson executive committee on a rotating basis every six months. There will be no change to their portfolio management responsibilities.

To further strengthen the team, analyst Julian McManus will be promoted to join Maris as co-portfolio manager on the overseas and global select strategies, effective 1 January 2018.

Commenting on the reshuffle, Chang said: ‘Promoting these two individuals from within the organisation is a testament to the firm’s strong investment talent and deep bench strength.

‘We are highly confident that their long tenure and significant accomplishments will ensure a smooth transition and that they will have a positive impact on the broader Janus Henderson organisation in these expanded leadership roles.’
