If you’re looking for the best mutual funds to buy in 2017, Janus funds should be on your short list.
The management company and fund adviser, Janus Capital Management LLC, isn’t a household name like Vanguard, Fidelity or American funds, but investors who love outstanding mutual funds know about Janus funds.
Janus funds hit the investment radar in the late 1990s, when a handful of their growth stock funds were seeing annual gains of 100% or more. But the technology bust of the early 2000s all but erased Janus funds from the minds of mutual fund investors.
However, Janus has done some serious rebuilding in recent years and the fund company has more than 350 funds, which includes all share classes of Janus funds and the new acquisitions of INTECH and Perkins Investments. And in 2014, Janus Capital hired Bill Gross as a fund manager and guru spokesperson.
This coming year could be setting up to be a great year for Janus funds. Here are three of the best of Janus to consider for your own portfolio.
