Chang Named Chief Investment Officer of Equities and Asset Allocation
DENVER -- April 09, 2013
Janus Capital Group Inc. (NYSE: JNS) today announced the appointment of
Enrique Chang, 50, as Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of Equities and Asset
Allocation. In this new role for the firm, Chang will oversee Janus’ equity,
risk management and alternatives teams and will partner with Janus' leadership
to develop multi-strategy portfolio solutions to serve clients' evolving
needs. Chang will assume the management of the equity investment team, a role
currently held by Jonathan Coleman. At Coleman’s request, he will focus solely
on portfolio management; he has been named Head of Growth Equities. Chang, who
will join Janus in September following a garden leave, will report to Chief
Executive Officer Richard Weil.
“Enrique has a proven track record of working collaboratively with investment
teams to ensure that portfolio solutions are anticipating clients’ needs,”
said Weil. “He will provide the support necessary for Jonathan to concentrate
on investing and maintain the continuity of Janus’ investment philosophy and
process within our growth equity franchise.”
“Janus has a strong team and I look forward to drawing on my experience to
support the equity team and identify opportunities for creative solutions that
leverage Janus’ expertise across investment disciplines,” Chang said.
For the last six years, Chang was chief investment officer and executive vice
president at American Century Investments and a member of the American Century
Companies, Inc. Board of Directors. He joined American Century in 2006 and was
named CIO in January 2007. Chang was responsible for a team of more than 150
investment professionals including portfolio managers, analysts and traders
across all investment sectors. He led the company’s Asset Allocation Committee
and Investment Management Senior Leadership Team.
Previously, Chang was president and chief investment officer for Munder
Capital Management. He also held senior investment management positions at
Vantage Global Advisors, J&W Seligman and Co., and General Reinsurance
Corporation. Chang received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Fairleigh
Dickinson University and master’s degrees in finance/quantitative analysis,
