Janus Henderson hires Matthew Peron as Director of Centralized Equity Research; Carmel Wellso to take well-deserved sabbatical


Janus Henderson has announced the hiring of Matthew Peron as Director of Centralized Equity Research. He was most recently Chief Investment Officer of City National Rochdale.

He will begin at Janus Henderson on April 13, 2020 and will be located in the firm’s Denver, CO office.  In this capacity, Mr. Peron will oversee the firm’s Centralized Equity Research function and be named as portfolio manager on all Research strategies.  Mr. Peron will report to George Maris, Co-Head of Equities for Janus Henderson.

Carmel Wellso, Janus Henderson’s existing Director of Central Equity Research, will begin a well-deserved, six-month sabbatical beginning July 1, 2020.  Until then, she will work closely with Mr. Peron to ensure a seamless transition. She was heavily involved in the selection of Mr. Peron and believes he is an excellent fit for the Research team and Janus Henderson culture. After her 6-month sabbatical, Ms. Wellso will determine in what capacity she would like to return to Janus Henderson.

Effective April 13, 2020, Mr. Peron will become Portfolio Manager on all Research strategies. There will be no change to any of the Research strategies’ investment objectives or philosophies.

“We are pleased to welcome Matt to the Janus Henderson team. We believe his extensive investment and leadership experience will complement our risk-adjusted return driven investment philosophy, help ensure a seamless transition and support the team to continue delivering valuable investment performance on behalf of our clients” said George Maris, Co-Head of Equities for Janus Henderson Investors.

“Carmel has made significant contributions to the firm over the past 12 years, including, but not limited to, enhancing the capabilities of the Centralized Equity Research team and more broadly as a senior leader within Janus Henderson.  I know I speak for the entire firm when I say her leadership, insight, commitment and friendship will be missed.  We look forward to welcoming her back after a well-deserved break.”
