Performance highlights

2018 represented a year of further transformation for Janus Henderson, against a backdrop of challenging markets and ongoing change in the asset management sector. The Group substantially completed its merger integration and realised targeted cost synergies well ahead of plan. Despite our progress, we faced the same global market challenges and headwinds as the wider industry, with an aggregate US$18 billion of net outflows.
