Janus Names Michael Stern as Sales Director for New York City

DENVER, April 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Janus Capital Group Inc. (NYSE:JNS)
today announced the appointment of Michael Stern as Regional Sales Director.
In his new role, Stern will spearhead the expansion of Janus' intermediary
distribution and sales in New York City.

"We are very pleased to have attracted a sales professional with Michael's
broad experience, track record of success and longstanding relationships to
help build Janus' distribution in the all-important New York region," said
John Ingram, SVP Advisor Solutions Group Sales at Janus.

A veteran of more than 20 years in financial services sales and sales
management, Stern was most recently a Market Director in the Chase Wealth
Management group at JP Morgan Chase. Prior to that, he served as National
Sales Manager at New York Life Mainstay, where he directed a team recommending
mutual funds, separately managed accounts and annuity solutions to financial
advisors at wirehouses and regional broker-dealers. Earlier still, he held
senior sales management positions at Citi Smith Barney's Mutual Fund & Annuity
Group and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney's Investment Products business unit.
Stern began his career as a financial advisor and, later, a branch sales
manager at Smith Barney in Melville, NY. He earned his B.A. from Lynchburg
College in Lynchburg, VA.

"The depth of Janus' commitment to distribution through financial advisors,
and to delivering better client outcomes, is truly impressive," Stern said. "I
look forward to helping advisors better understand Janus' evolution, the
breadth of Janus products available today—including lower-beta solutions—and
how they can best be utilized to address clients' needs and concerns."
