  • Janus Henderson Announces the Innovative Janus SG Global Trends Index To Be Used by Global Atlantic in Its New Fixed Index Annuity

    June 24, 2020 by Janus Henderson Investors


    June 23, 2020 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

    DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Janus Henderson Investors (NYSE/ASX: JHG) today announced the innovative Janus SG Global Trends Index has been licensed to Global Atlantic Financial Group, a leading U.S. retirement and life insurance company. The Index was developed in partnership with Société Générale who acts as the index sponsor and licensor. As part of this agreement, Global Atlantic will have exclusive usage rights to the index within their Fixed Index Annuity offering.

    Janus Henderson Indices has been providing quantitative index strategies since 2012, and these strategies are now the basis for $3.5 billion in investment products with major financial partners including Fixed Indexed Annuities, Variable Annuities, and Exchange Traded Funds. Janus Henderson Indices specializes in building custom indices to meet the needs of sophisticated financial partners such as Global Atlantic who today announced that the Janus SG Global Trends Index will be available in a first-of-its-kind crediting method for Fixed Index Annuities known as the Enhanced Accumulation Strategy, or EAS, available within Global Atlantic’s Choice Accumulation Edge product.

    The Janus SG Global Trends Index uses dynamic risk management tools designed to effectively diversify among global stocks, bonds and commodities. Traditional tools have typically relied on the assumption that stocks are always higher risk, while bonds are relatively safe, which does not always hold true. Such asset allocation approaches can overallocate to bonds in rising interest rate environments, and may not consider the changing return potential of different asset classes over time. The Janus SG Global Trends Index uses market signals to manage these challenges dynamically, adapting to changes in risk profiles between bonds, stocks and commodities.

    “We believe that this innovative approach to dynamic asset allocation and the risk aware features of the Janus SG Global Trends Index can make it more likely than traditional approaches to deliver consistent, stable returns across varying market conditions. The index is particularly suited to the innovative crediting method, EAS, which Global Atlantic has today announced,” said Nick Cherney, Head of Exchange Traded Products for Janus Henderson.

    “We’re excited to feature the Janus SG Global Trends Index within our Choice Accumulation Edge FIA as the basis for our innovative EAS crediting method. This option gives customers a compelling new avenue to pursue their growth objectives,” says Paula Nelson, President of Retirement at Global Atlantic.

    Janus Henderson Indices is an innovator in index construction, offering investors sophisticated approaches to understanding complex markets. Grounded in our decades of experience in asset management, our rigorous, rules-based approach powers transparent and investable products around the world in a variety of asset classes, markets and weighting methodologies.
