Australia’s largest asset consultant JANA was recently awarded Chant West’s ‘highest quality’ multimanager rating, 5 Apples for the 11th time.
Chant West highlighted JANA’s “strong and stable senior management team, high quality investment consulting business and portfolio management team, as well as its strong investment performance” as key strengths of the business.
JANA CEO Jim Lamborn said, “We’re extremely pleased to have been awarded Chant West’s highest rating again of 5 Apples for our range of multi-manager portfolios.’’
“This strong conviction in our investment approach, and most importantly, our ability to deliver for our clients, is particularly pleasing given the market consensus that we’re in an extremely tricky investment environment.”
In awarding ratings, Chant West takes into account an issuer’s ability to construct multi-manager products that represent industry best practice and have a high likelihood of achieving their stated risk/return objectives.
“This award further reinforces the great work the team has been doing in working closely with clients to understand their needs and helping investors reach their investment goals,” Lamborn added.
JANA currently advises five of the top ten largest super funds and has funds under advice of over A$300bn.
