DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Janus Capital Group Inc. (“JCG”) (NYSE: JNS) today announced that Tatsusaburo Yamamoto has been appointed to its Board of Directors (“Board”), effective July 24, 2015. Mr. Yamamoto’s appointment to the Board is in connection with the strategic alliance JCG and The Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company, Limited (“Dai-ichi Life”) entered into on August 10, 2012, and the resignation of Dai-ichi Life’s previous designee, Seiji Inagaki, from the Board effective July 24, 2015.
