Janus Henderson US equity manager exits to run hedge fund

Janus Henderson US equity manager exits to run hedge fund

Fund manager Dan Kozlowski is leaving Janus Henderson Investors to return to the Chicago-based hedge fund he founded almost ten years ago.

The US equity manager had been running the Ucit-compliant Janus Opportunistic Alpha and US domiciled Janus Henderson Contrarian fund since he rejoined Janus in 2011 after having previously worked at the firm between 2000-2008.

He will now be managing full-time the hedge fund he initially left Janus to found in 2008, Plaisance Capital, a spokesperson at Janus Henderson confirmed to Citywire Americas.

They added that his decision to leave was unrelated to the recent merger of Janus Capital with UK group Henderson Global Investors.

Both his funds have been handed on July 3 to Nick Schommer, who is currently the co-manager of the US domiciled Janus Henderson Concentrated Growth strategy and related Forty Fund.

Commenting on the manager change, the spokesperson said: 'Nick has demonstrated success managing high-conviction portfolios and we are excited to have him bring that expertise to the Opportunistic Alpha strategy. Dan will remain at the firm for a transition period.'
