Janus Henderson Investors bolsters Australian retail intermediary sales team


Janus Henderson Investors is strengthening its presence in the Australian financial adviser and intermediary markets with a new addition to its retail sales team.

The firm has appointed Adam Cassidy as Retail Sales Director. Adam joins Janus Henderson following a relationship manager role at T. Rowe Price and previous industry experience at BT Financial Group and AMP. Based in Sydney, Adam will report to Jordan Tang, Head of Retail Distribution for Australia. Adam will primarily be responsible for growing and strengthening relationships with financial advisers and intermediary consultants across NSW, WA and the ACT.

Matt Gaden, Head of Australia at Janus Henderson Investors said: “Adam is a vital addition as we continue to enhance our adviser relationships, reinforce our strong foothold in Australian fixed income, and strengthen our global equities capabilities in the region. For over a decade Adam has worked closely with advisers to manage and grow their businesses, and advisers will value his expertise working across global equities, fixed income and multi-asset strategies.”

The global asset manager also announced that Craig McDonald has been promoted into the newly created role of Head of Retail Research for Australia. Craig was previously a Sales Director in the retail distribution team and has been with Janus Henderson Investors for six years. The promotion sees Craig being responsible for managing Janus Henderson’s relationship with key decision makers across partnered research houses. He will also manage and oversee the firm’s New Zealand distribution efforts in the intermediary channel. Craig also reports to Jordan Tang.

Matt Gaden said: “Janus Henderson Investors has built a strong presence over a number of years in the intermediary market, with a high quality distribution team, and these appointments reinforce that our people form the backbone of our strategy as a firm. Craig’s continued development into the Head of Retail Research role shows our career pathways continue to provide opportunities for our staff. The appointment of Adam and the promotion of Craig reaffirms Janus Henderson’s dedication to its clients to deliver quality investment strategies backed by exceptional people.”
