This fee may adjust up or down monthly based on the Fund’s performance relative to its benchmark index over the performance measurement period. For more information regarding performance-based advisory fees, refer to “Management Expenses” in the Fund’s Prospectus.
(2)
“Acquired Fund” refers to any underlying fund (including, but not limited to, exchange-traded funds) in which a fund invests or has invested during the period. Acquired fund fees and expenses are indirect expenses a fund may incur as a result of investing in shares of an underlying fund. To the extent that the Fund invests in Acquired Funds, the Fund’s “Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses” may not correlate to the “Ratio of gross expenses to average net assets” presented in the Financial Highlights tables because that ratio includes only the direct operating expenses incurred by the Fund, not the indirect costs of investing in Acquired Funds.
(3)
The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive its investment advisory fee and/or reimburse operating expenses to the extent that the Fund’s total annual fund operating expenses (excluding any performance adjustments to management fees, the fees payable pursuant to a Rule 12b-1 plan, shareholder servicing fees, such as transfer agency fees (including out-of-pocket costs), administrative services fees and any networking/omnibus fees payable by any share class, brokerage commissions, interest, dividends, taxes, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) exceed 0.94% for at least a one-year period commencing on January 26, 2024. This contractual waiver may be terminated or modified only at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.
EXAMPLE:
The Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and reinvest all dividends

and distributions. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses are equal to the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement for the first year and the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses thereafter. Class C Shares automatically convert to Class A Shares after eight years. The Example for Class C Shares for the ten-year period reflects the conversion to Class A Shares. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover: The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the Example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 106% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal investment strategies
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of Asian issuers (excluding Japanese issuers). An Asian issuer is generally considered to be any company that (i) is incorporated or has its principal business activities in an Asian country; (ii) is primarily listed on the trading market of an Asian country; or (iii) derives 50% or more of its revenue from, or has 50% or more of its assets in, one or more Asian countries. The Fund considers “Asian countries” to include, but not be limited to, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, India, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The Fund may have significant exposure to emerging market countries.
The Fund generally invests in a portfolio of 40-70 equity securities, which consist primarily of common stocks, preferred stocks, and depositary receipts, but may also include other types of instruments. The Fund also invests in securities that have contractual restrictions that prohibit or limit their public resale. The Fund intends to diversify its investments across a number of different countries, including emerging market countries. The Fund may also invest in Chinese companies listed on U.S. and other exchanges structured as variable interest entities. In addition, the Fund may invest in securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies and in less seasoned issuers.
The Fund may invest in derivatives. Derivative instruments have a value derived from, or directly linked to, an underlying asset, such as equity securities, fixed-income securities, commodities, currencies, interest rates, or market indices. In particular, the Fund may invest in derivatives such as futures, options, forward currency contracts, warrants, and swaps (including total return swaps) for various investment purposes, such as to gain exposure to a particular portion of the market or to manage or hedge portfolio risk.
Portfolio management employs both a “top-down” and “bottom-up” approach to select investments for the Fund. The top-down approach involves a macro analysis of factors that include a country’s economic growth profile, the stages of a country’s development, and trends in a country’s governance and regulatory framework. The bottom-up analysis focuses on fundamental research and considers, among other factors, a company’s valuation, growth potential, competitive positioning, projected future earnings, cash flows, governance, and dividends. The Fund has the ability to invest more heavily in either
3 | Janus Henderson Asia Equity Fund

growth or value securities depending on market conditions and portfolio management’s convictions. The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading to achieve its investment objective.
The Fund will generally consider selling a stock when, in portfolio management’s opinion, there is a deterioration in the factors considered in selecting investments for the Fund, including changes in a country’s stage of development, governance, or regulatory framework. The Fund will also consider selling a stock when, in portfolio management’s opinion, a company’s fundamentals or a company’s revenue growth has slowed, or there has been changes in a company’s risk/reward potential.
Principal investment risks
The biggest risk is that the Fund’s returns will vary, and you could lose money. The Fund is designed for long-term investors seeking an Asian equity portfolio, including common stocks. Common stocks tend to be more volatile than many other investment choices. The principal risks associated with investing in the Fund are set forth below.
Emerging Markets Risk.Emerging market securities involve a number of risks, which may result from less government supervision and regulation of business and industry practices (including the potential lack of strict finance and accounting controls and standards), stock exchanges, brokers, and listed companies. Information about emerging market companies, including financial information, may be less available or reliable and the Adviser’s ability to conduct due diligence with respect to such companies may be limited. Accordingly, these investments may be potentially more volatile in price and less liquid than investments in developed securities markets, resulting in greater risk to investors. There is a risk in developing countries that a current or future economic or political crisis could lead to price controls, forced mergers of companies, expropriation or confiscatory taxation, imposition or enforcement of foreign ownership limits, seizure, nationalization, sanctions or imposition of restrictions by various governmental entities on investment and trading, or creation of government monopolies, any of which may have a detrimental effect on the Fund’s investments. In addition, the taxation systems at the federal, regional, and local levels in developing or emerging market countries may be less transparent, inconsistently enforced, and subject to change. Emerging markets may be subject to a higher degree of corruption and fraud than developed markets, and financial institutions and transaction counterparties may have less financial sophistication, creditworthiness, and/or resources than participants in developed markets. Additionally, foreign and emerging market risks, including but not limited to price controls, expropriation or confiscatory taxation, imposition or enforcement of foreign ownership limits, nationalization, and restrictions on repatriation of assets may be heightened to the extent the Fund invests in Chinese or other local market securities. Foreign and emerging market risks may also be heightened to the extent the Fund has exposure to Chinese issuers through variable interest entities, which subjects the Fund to the risks associated with the underlying Chinese issuer or operating company.
Foreign Exposure Risk.Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market. As a result, the Fund’s returns and net asset value may be affected by fluctuations in currency exchange rates or political or economic conditions in a particular country. In some foreign markets, there may not be protection against failure by other parties to complete transactions. It may not be possible for the Fund to repatriate capital, dividends, interest, and other income from a particular country or governmental entity. In addition, a market swing in one or more countries or regions where the Fund has invested a significant amount of its assets may have a greater effect on the Fund’s performance than it would in a more geographically diversified portfolio.
Market Risk.The value of the Fund’s portfolio may decrease due to short-term market movements and over more prolonged market downturns. As a result, the Fund’s net asset value may fluctuate and it may be more difficult to value or sell the Fund’s holdings. Market risk may affect a single issuer, industry, economic sector, or the market as a whole. Market risk may be magnified if certain social, political, economic, and other conditions and events (such as terrorism, conflicts, including related sanctions, social unrest, natural disasters, epidemics and pandemics, including COVID-19) adversely interrupt the global economy and financial markets. It is important to understand that the value of your investment may fall, sometimes sharply, in response to changes in the market, and you could lose money.
Portfolio Management Risk.The Fund is an actively managed investment portfolio and is therefore subject to the risk that the investment strategies and research process employed for the Fund may fail to produce the intended results. Accordingly, the Fund may underperform its benchmark index or other mutual funds with similar investment objectives.
Geographic Investment Risk.Because the Fund intends to focus its investments in a particular geographic region, the Fund’s performance is expected to be closely tied to various factors such as social, financial, economic, and political conditions within that region or country. Specifically, the Fund’s investments in Asian issuers increase the Fund’s exposure to the risks
4 | Janus Henderson Asia Equity Fund

associated with volatile securities markets, adverse exchange rates, social, political and regulatory developments, and economic environmental events (such as natural disasters) which may be particular to Asian countries. Events that negatively affect the fiscal stability of Asian countries may cause the value of the Fund’s shares to decrease, in some cases significantly. As a result, the Fund is likely to be more volatile than more geographically diverse funds. In addition, many of the economies of the Asian countries in which the Fund invests are interdependent, which may cause them to experience the impact of such events at the same time or may increase the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely impact the issuers of securities in a different country or region.
China Risk.The value of securities of companies that derive the majority of their revenues from China is likely to be more volatile than that of other issuers. The economy of China differs, often unfavorably, from the U.S. economy in such respects as structure, general development, government involvement, wealth distribution, rate of inflation, growth rate, allocation of resources and capital reinvestment. The Chinese central government historically has exercised substantial control over virtually every sector of the Chinese economy through administrative regulation and/or state ownership. Actions of the Chinese government authorities continue to have a substantial effect on economic conditions in China. It is difficult for non-Chinese investors to directly access securities in China because of investment and trading restrictions. These limitations and restrictions may impact the availability, liquidity, and pricing of certain securities.
Currency Risk.Currency risk is the risk that changes in the exchange rate between currencies will adversely affect the value (in U.S. dollar terms) of an investment. As long as the Fund holds a foreign security, its value will be affected by the value of the local currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When the Fund sells a foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the security increases in value in its home country. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the value of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency.
Small- and Mid-Sized Companies Risk.Investments in securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies, which can include smaller, start-up companies offering emerging products or services, may involve greater risks than are customarily associated with larger, more established companies. For example, small- and mid-sized companies may suffer more significant losses as a result of their narrow product lines, limited operating history, greater exposure to competitive threats, limited financial resources, limited trading markets, and the potential lack of management depth. Securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies tend to be more volatile and somewhat more speculative than securities issued by larger or more established companies and may underperform as compared to the securities of larger or more established companies. These holdings are also subject to wider price fluctuations and tend to be less liquid than stocks of larger or more established companies, which could have a significant adverse effect on the Fund’s returns, especially as market conditions change.
Industry and Sector Risk.Although the Fund does not concentrate its investments in specific industries, it may have a significant portion of its assets invested in securities of companies conducting similar business or businesses within the same economic sector. Companies in the same industry or economic sector may be similarly affected by economic or market events, making the Fund more vulnerable to unfavorable developments than funds that invest more broadly. As the Fund’s portfolio becomes more concentrated, the Fund is less able to spread risk and potentially reduce the risk of loss and volatility. In addition, the Fund may be overweight or underweight in certain industries or sectors relative to its benchmark index, which may cause the Fund’s performance to be more or less sensitive to developments affecting those sectors.
Issuer Concentration Risk.The Fund’s portfolio may be comprised of a relatively small number of issuers in comparison to other funds. As a result, the Fund may be subject to greater risks than a fund that invests in a greater number of issuers. A change in the value of any single investment held by the Fund may affect the overall value of the Fund more than it would affect a fund that holds more investments. In particular, the Fund may be more susceptible to adverse developments affecting any single issuer held by the Fund and may be susceptible to greater losses because of these developments.
Growth Securities Risk.Securities of companies perceived to be “growth” companies may be more volatile than other stocks and may involve special risks. If portfolio management’s perception of a company’s growth potential is not realized, the securities purchased may not perform as expected, reducing the Fund’s returns. In addition, because different types of stocks tend to shift in and out of favor depending on market and economic conditions, “growth” stocks may perform differently from other types of securities and the market as a whole.
Value Investing Risk.Because different types of stocks tend to shift in and out of favor depending on market and economic conditions, “value” stocks may perform differently than other types of stocks and from the market as a whole, and can
5 | Janus Henderson Asia Equity Fund

continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time. It is also possible that a value stock will never appreciate to the extent expected by portfolio management.
Depositary Receipts Risk.Depositary receipts are generally subject to the same sort of risks as direct investments in a foreign country, such as currency risk, market risk, and foreign exposure risk, because their values depend on the performance of a foreign security denominated in its home currency.
Preferred Stock Risk.Preferred stock is subject to similar risks as common stock and debt securities. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of preferred stock. Preferred stocks are also subject to credit risk, which is the possibility that an issuer of preferred stock will fail to make its dividend payments.
Liquidity Risk.The Fund may invest in securities or instruments that do not trade actively or in large volumes, and may make investments that are less liquid than other investments. Also, the Fund may make investments that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Investments that are illiquid or that trade in lower volumes may be more difficult to value. When there is no willing buyer and investments cannot be readily sold at the desired time or price, the Fund may have to accept a lower price or may not be able to sell the security or instrument at all. Investments in foreign securities, particularly those of issuers located in emerging market countries, tend to have greater exposure to liquidity risk than domestic securities. In unusual market conditions, even normally liquid securities may be affected by a degree of liquidity risk (i.e., if the number and capacity of traditional market participants is reduced). An inability to sell one or more portfolio positions can adversely affect the Fund’s value or prevent the Fund from being able to take advantage of other investment opportunities.
Derivatives Risk.Derivatives can be volatile and involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying referenced securities or asset. Gains or losses from a derivative investment can be substantially greater than the derivative’s original cost, and can therefore involve leverage. Leverage may cause the Fund to be more volatile than if it had not used leverage. Derivatives can be complex instruments and may involve analysis that differs from that required for other investment types used by the Fund. If the value of a derivative does not correlate well with the particular market or other asset class to which the derivative is intended to provide exposure, the derivative may not produce the anticipated result. Derivatives can also reduce the opportunity for gain or result in losses by offsetting positive returns in other investments. Derivatives entail the risk that the counterparty will default on its payment obligations. If the counterparty to a derivative transaction defaults, the Fund would risk the loss of the net amount of the payments that it contractually is entitled to receive. Derivatives used for hedging purposes may reduce or eliminate gains or cause losses if the market moves in a manner different from that anticipated by portfolio management or if the cost of the derivative outweighs the benefit of the hedge.
Rule 144A Securities and Other Exempt Securities Risk.Investments in securities issued under Regulation S and Rule 144A and other securities exempt from certain registration requirements could have the effect of decreasing the Fund’s liquidity profile or preventing the Fund from disposing of them promptly at advantageous prices. Investments in securities exempt from certain registration requirements may be less liquid than other investments because such securities may not always be readily sold in broad public markets and may have no active trading market. As a result, they may be difficult to value because market quotations may not be readily available.
Portfolio Turnover Risk.Increased portfolio turnover may result in higher costs, which may have a negative effect on the Fund’s performance. In addition, higher portfolio turnover may result in the acceleration of capital gains and the recognition of greater levels of short-term capital gains, which are taxed at ordinary federal income tax rates when distributed to shareholders in a taxable account.
Large Shareholder Risk.To the extent a substantial percentage of the shares of the Fund are held by a small number of shareholders, including “fund of funds” or accounts over which the Adviser has investment discretion, the Fund is subject to the risk that these shareholders will purchase or redeem the Fund’s shares in large amounts rapidly or unexpectedly, including as a result of an asset allocation decision made by the Adviser. These transactions could adversely affect the ability of the Fund to conduct its investment program.
Smaller Sized Fund Risk.Because the Fund has a small asset base, large inflows and outflows may have a disproportionate impact, negative or positive, on the Fund’s performance, which may be more volatile than that of a larger fund. If the Fund were to fail to attract sufficient assets to achieve or maintain economies of scale, its performance may be negatively impacted, and any resulting liquidation could create negative transaction costs for the Fund and tax consequences for investors.

Performance information
The following information provides some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing how the Fund’s performance has varied over time. Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class S Shares, Class I Shares and Class T Shares of the Fund commenced operations with the Fund’s inception. Class N Shares commenced operations on January 26, 2018.
The performance shown for Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class S Shares, Class I Shares, and Class T Shares is calculated using the fees and expenses of each respective share class, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class N Shares for periods prior to January 26, 2018, reflects the performance of the Fund’s Class I Shares, calculated using the fees and expenses of Class N Shares, without the effect of any fee and expense limitations or waivers. If Class N Shares of the Fund had been available during periods prior to January 26, 2018, the performance shown may have been different.
The bar chart depicts the change in performance from year to year during the periods indicated. The bar chart figures do not include any applicable sales charges that an investor may pay when they buy or sell Class A Shares or Class C Shares of the Fund. If sales charges were included, the returns would be lower.The table compares the Fund’s average annual returns for the periods indicated to a broad-based securities market index. All figures assume reinvestment of dividends and distributions. For certain periods, the Fund’s performance reflects the effect of expense waivers. Without the effect of these expense waivers, the performance shown would have been lower.
The Fund’s past performance (before and after taxes) does not necessarily indicate how it will perform in the future. Updated performance information is available atjanushenderson.com/performance or by calling 1-877-335-2687.

Tax information
The Fund’s distributions are taxable, and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account (in which case you may be taxed upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to broker-dealers and other financial intermediaries
If you purchase Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class S Shares, Class I Shares, or Class T Shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund or its distributor (or its affiliates) may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment or to recommend one share class over another. There is some regulatory uncertainty concerning whether marketing support or other similar payments may be made or received in connection with Class I Shares where a financial intermediary has imposed its own sales charges or transaction fees. As a result, based on future regulatory developments, such payments may be terminated, or the Fund may prohibit financial intermediaries from imposing such sales charges or transaction fees in connection with Class I Shares. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive its investment advisory fee and/or reimburse operating expenses to the extent that the Fund’s total annual fund operating expenses (excluding the fees payable pursuant to a Rule 12b-1 plan, shareholder servicing fees, such as transfer agency fees (including out-of-pocket costs), administrative services fees and any networking/omnibus fees payable by any share class, brokerage commissions, interest, dividends, taxes, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) exceed 1.03% for at least a one-year period commencing on January 26, 2024. This contractual waiver may be terminated or modified only at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.
EXAMPLE:
The Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and reinvest all dividends and distributions. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses are equal to the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement for the first year and the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses thereafter. Class C Shares automatically convert to Class A Shares

Portfolio Turnover: The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the Example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 63% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal investment strategies
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of companies in emerging market countries. Equity securities include common stocks and related securities, such as preferred stock and convertible securities. The Fund also invests in securities that have contractual restrictions that prohibit or limit their public resale. Emerging market countries are all countries represented by the MSCI Emerging Markets Indexsm and/or those countries considered to be developing by the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation or the United Nations. These countries typically are located in the Asia-Pacific region, Eastern Europe, Central and South America, and Africa.
Companies in emerging market countries are broadly defined to include any company that meets one or more of the following tests: (i) its country of organization, its primary business office, and/or the principal trading market of its stock are located in an emerging market country; (ii) 50% or more of its assets are located in emerging market countries, (iii) 50% or more of its revenues are derived from emerging market countries; or (iv) a company with similar emerging markets exposure.
In addition to the Fund’s main investments, the Fund may invest no more than 20% of its net assets in the securities of issuers in developed market countries.
The Fund may invest in derivatives. Derivative instruments have a value derived from, or directly linked to, an underlying asset, such as equity securities, fixed-income securities, commodities, currencies, interest rates, or market indices. In particular, the Fund may invest in derivatives such as futures, options, forward currency contracts, warrants, and swaps (including total return swaps) for various investment purposes, such as to gain exposure to a particular portion of the market or to manage or hedge portfolio risk.
Portfolio management employs both a “top-down” and “bottom-up” approach to select investments for the Fund. The top-down approach involves a macro analysis of factors that include an issuer’s economic growth profile, the stages of a country’s development, and trends in a country’s governance and regulatory framework. The bottom-up analysis focuses on fundamental research and considers, among other factors, a company’s valuation, growth potential, competitive positioning, projected future earnings, cash flows, governance, and dividends. The Fund has the ability to invest more heavily in either growth or value securities depending on market conditions and portfolio management’s convictions.
11 | Janus Henderson Emerging Markets Fund

The Fund will generally consider selling a stock when, in portfolio management’s opinion, there is a deterioration in the factors considered in selecting investments for the Fund, including changes in a country’s stage of development, governance, or regulatory framework. The Fund will also consider selling a stock when, in portfolio management’s opinion, a company’s fundamentals or a company’s revenue growth has slowed, or there has been changes in a company’s risk/reward potential.
At times, the Fund may invest to a significant degree in issuers located in a single country or region, which particularly includes China, or may also invest in Chinese companies listed on U.S. exchanges structured as variable interest entities. In addition, the Fund may invest in securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies and in less seasoned issuers.
Principal investment risks
The biggest risk is that the Fund’s returns will vary, and you could lose money. The Fund is designed for long-term investors seeking an equity portfolio, including common stocks. Common stocks tend to be more volatile than many other investment choices. The principal risks associated with investing in the Fund are set forth below.
Emerging Markets Risk.Emerging market securities involve a number of risks, which may result from less government supervision and regulation of business and industry practices (including the potential lack of strict finance and accounting controls and standards), stock exchanges, brokers, and listed companies. Information about emerging market companies, including financial information, may be less available or reliable and the Adviser’s ability to conduct due diligence with respect to such companies may be limited. Accordingly, these investments may be potentially more volatile in price and less liquid than investments in developed securities markets, resulting in greater risk to investors. There is a risk in developing countries that a current or future economic or political crisis could lead to price controls, forced mergers of companies, expropriation or confiscatory taxation, imposition or enforcement of foreign ownership limits, seizure, nationalization, sanctions or imposition of restrictions by various governmental entities on investment and trading, or creation of government monopolies, any of which may have a detrimental effect on the Fund’s investments. In addition, the taxation systems at the federal, regional, and local levels in developing or emerging market countries may be less transparent, inconsistently enforced, and subject to change. Emerging markets may be subject to a higher degree of corruption and fraud than developed markets, and financial institutions and transaction counterparties may have less financial sophistication, creditworthiness, and/or resources than participants in developed markets. Additionally, foreign and emerging market risks, including but not limited to price controls, expropriation or confiscatory taxation, imposition or enforcement of foreign ownership limits, nationalization, and restrictions on repatriation of assets may be heightened to the extent the Fund invests in Chinese or other local market securities. Foreign and emerging market risks may also be heightened to the extent the Fund has exposure to Chinese issuers through variable interest entities, which subjects the Fund to the risks associated with the underlying Chinese issuer or operating company.
Foreign Exposure Risk.Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market. As a result, the Fund’s returns and net asset value may be affected by fluctuations in currency exchange rates or political or economic conditions in a particular country. In some foreign markets, there may not be protection against failure by other parties to complete transactions. It may not be possible for the Fund to repatriate capital, dividends, interest, and other income from a particular country or governmental entity. In addition, a market swing in one or more countries or regions where the Fund has invested a significant amount of its assets may have a greater effect on the Fund’s performance than it would in a more geographically diversified portfolio.
Market Risk.The value of the Fund’s portfolio may decrease due to short-term market movements and over more prolonged market downturns. As a result, the Fund’s net asset value may fluctuate and it may be more difficult to value or sell the Fund’s holdings. Market risk may affect a single issuer, industry, economic sector, or the market as a whole. Market risk may be magnified if certain social, political, economic, and other conditions and events (such as terrorism, conflicts, including related sanctions, social unrest, natural disasters, epidemics and pandemics, including COVID-19) adversely interrupt the global economy and financial markets. It is important to understand that the value of your investment may fall, sometimes sharply, in response to changes in the market, and you could lose money.
Portfolio Management Risk.The Fund is an actively managed investment portfolio and is therefore subject to the risk that the investment strategies and research process employed for the Fund may fail to produce the intended results. Accordingly, the Fund may underperform its benchmark index or other mutual funds with similar investment objectives.
Geographic Concentration Risk.To the extent the Fund invests a substantial amount of its assets in issuers located in a single country or region, the economic, political, social, regulatory, or other developments or conditions within such country
12 | Janus Henderson Emerging Markets Fund

or region will generally have a greater effect on the Fund than they would on a more geographically diversified fund, which may result in greater losses and volatility. Adverse developments in certain regions could also adversely affect securities of other countries whose economies appear to be unrelated and could have a negative impact on the Fund’s performance.
China Risk.The value of securities of companies that derive the majority of their revenues from China is likely to be more volatile than that of other issuers. The economy of China differs, often unfavorably, from the U.S. economy in such respects as structure, general development, government involvement, wealth distribution, rate of inflation, growth rate, allocation of resources and capital reinvestment. The Chinese central government historically has exercised substantial control over virtually every sector of the Chinese economy through administrative regulation and/or state ownership. Actions of the Chinese government authorities continue to have a substantial effect on economic conditions in China. It is difficult for non-Chinese investors to directly access securities in China because of investment and trading restrictions. These limitations and restrictions may impact the availability, liquidity, and pricing of certain securities.
Currency Risk.Currency risk is the risk that changes in the exchange rate between currencies will adversely affect the value (in U.S. dollar terms) of an investment. As long as the Fund holds a foreign security, its value will be affected by the value of the local currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When the Fund sells a foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the security increases in value in its home country. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the value of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency.
Small- and Mid-Sized Companies Risk.Investments in securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies, which can include smaller, start-up companies offering emerging products or services, may involve greater risks than are customarily associated with larger, more established companies. For example, small- and mid-sized companies may suffer more significant losses as a result of their narrow product lines, limited operating history, greater exposure to competitive threats, limited financial resources, limited trading markets, and the potential lack of management depth. Securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies tend to be more volatile and somewhat more speculative than securities issued by larger or more established companies and may underperform as compared to the securities of larger or more established companies. These holdings are also subject to wider price fluctuations and tend to be less liquid than stocks of larger or more established companies, which could have a significant adverse effect on the Fund’s returns, especially as market conditions change.
Industry and Sector Risk.Although the Fund does not concentrate its investments in specific industries, it may have a significant portion of its assets invested in securities of companies conducting similar business or businesses within the same economic sector. Companies in the same industry or economic sector may be similarly affected by economic or market events, making the Fund more vulnerable to unfavorable developments than funds that invest more broadly. As the Fund’s portfolio becomes more concentrated, the Fund is less able to spread risk and potentially reduce the risk of loss and volatility. In addition, the Fund may be overweight or underweight in certain industries or sectors relative to its benchmark index, which may cause the Fund’s performance to be more or less sensitive to developments affecting those sectors.
Growth Securities Risk.Securities of companies perceived to be “growth” companies may be more volatile than other stocks and may involve special risks. If portfolio management’s perception of a company’s growth potential is not realized, the securities purchased may not perform as expected, reducing the Fund’s returns. In addition, because different types of stocks tend to shift in and out of favor depending on market and economic conditions, “growth” stocks may perform differently from other types of securities and the market as a whole.
Value Investing Risk.Because different types of stocks tend to shift in and out of favor depending on market and economic conditions, “value” stocks may perform differently than other types of stocks and from the market as a whole, and can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time. It is also possible that a value stock will never appreciate to the extent expected by portfolio management.
Liquidity Risk.The Fund may invest in securities or instruments that do not trade actively or in large volumes, and may make investments that are less liquid than other investments. Also, the Fund may make investments that may become less liquid in response to market developments or adverse investor perceptions. Investments that are illiquid or that trade in lower volumes may be more difficult to value. When there is no willing buyer and investments cannot be readily sold at the desired time or price, the Fund may have to accept a lower price or may not be able to sell the security or instrument at all. Investments in foreign securities, particularly those of issuers located in emerging market countries, tend to have greater exposure to liquidity risk than domestic securities. In unusual market conditions, even normally liquid securities may be affected by a degree of liquidity risk (i.e., if the number and capacity of traditional market participants is reduced). An
13 | Janus Henderson Emerging Markets Fund

inability to sell one or more portfolio positions can adversely affect the Fund’s value or prevent the Fund from being able to take advantage of other investment opportunities.
Derivatives Risk.Derivatives can be volatile and involve risks in addition to the risks of the underlying referenced securities or asset. Gains or losses from a derivative investment can be substantially greater than the derivative’s original cost, and can therefore involve leverage. Leverage may cause the Fund to be more volatile than if it had not used leverage. Derivatives can be complex instruments and may involve analysis that differs from that required for other investment types used by the Fund. If the value of a derivative does not correlate well with the particular market or other asset class to which the derivative is intended to provide exposure, the derivative may not produce the anticipated result. Derivatives can also reduce the opportunity for gain or result in losses by offsetting positive returns in other investments. Derivatives entail the risk that the counterparty will default on its payment obligations. If the counterparty to a derivative transaction defaults, the Fund would risk the loss of the net amount of the payments that it contractually is entitled to receive. Derivatives used for hedging purposes may reduce or eliminate gains or cause losses if the market moves in a manner different from that anticipated by portfolio management or if the cost of the derivative outweighs the benefit of the hedge.
Rule 144A Securities and Other Exempt Securities Risk.Investments in securities issued under Regulation S and Rule 144A and other securities exempt from certain registration requirements could have the effect of decreasing the Fund’s liquidity profile or preventing the Fund from disposing of them promptly at advantageous prices. Investments in securities exempt from certain registration requirements may be less liquid than other investments because such securities may not always be readily sold in broad public markets and may have no active trading market. As a result, they may be difficult to value because market quotations may not be readily available.
Convertible Securities Risk.The Fund may invest in securities that are convertible into preferred and common stocks, and thus, is subject to the risks of investments in both debt and equity securities. The market value of convertible securities tends to decline as interest rates increase and, conversely, tends to increase as interest rates decline. In addition, because of the conversion feature, the market value of convertible securities tends to vary with fluctuations in the market value of the underlying preferred and common stocks and, therefore, also will react to variations in the general market for equity securities.
Preferred Stock Risk.Preferred stock is subject to similar risks as common stock and debt securities. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of preferred stock. Preferred stocks are also subject to credit risk, which is the possibility that an issuer of preferred stock will fail to make its dividend payments.
Large Shareholder Risk.To the extent a substantial percentage of the shares of the Fund are held by a small number of shareholders, including “fund of funds” or accounts over which the Adviser has investment discretion, the Fund is subject to the risk that these shareholders will purchase or redeem the Fund’s shares in large amounts rapidly or unexpectedly, including as a result of an asset allocation decision made by the Adviser. These transactions could adversely affect the ability of the Fund to conduct its investment program.
An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
Performance information
The following information provides some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing how the Fund’s performance has varied over time. Returns shown for periods prior to June 5, 2017, are those of Henderson Emerging Markets Fund (the “Predecessor Fund”). The Predecessor Fund was advised by Henderson Global Investors (North America) Inc. and subadvised by Henderson Investment Management Limited. Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class I Shares, and Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund were reorganized into Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class I Shares, and Class N Shares, respectively, of the Fund on June 2, 2017. Class A Shares, Class C Shares, and Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund commenced operations with the Predecessor Fund’s inception on December 31, 2010. Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund commenced operations on November 30, 2015. Class S Shares and Class T Shares of the Fund commenced operations on June 5, 2017.
The performance shown for Class A Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
14 | Janus Henderson Emerging Markets Fund

The performance shown for Class C Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class C Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class C Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class I Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class N Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers, except that for periods prior to November 30, 2015, performance shown for Class N Shares reflects the performance of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the estimated fees and expenses of Class N Shares, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class S Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the estimated fees and expenses of Class S Shares, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class T Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the estimated fees and expenses of Class T Shares, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
Returns of the Fund will be different from the Predecessor Fund as they have different expenses.
The bar chart depicts the change in performance from year to year during the periods indicated. The bar chart figures do not include any applicable sales charges that an investor may pay when they buy or sell Class A Shares or Class C Shares of the Fund. If sales charges were included, the returns would be lower.The table compares the Fund’s average annual returns for the periods indicated to a broad-based securities market index. All figures assume reinvestment of dividends and distributions. For certain periods, the Fund’s performance reflects the effect of expense waivers. Without the effect of these expense waivers, the performance shown would have been lower.
The Fund’s (and the Predecessor Fund’s) past performance (before and after taxes) does not necessarily indicate how the Fund will perform in the future. Updated performance information is available at janushenderson.com/performance or by calling 1-877-335-2687.

The one year return is calculated to include the contingent deferred sales charge.
The Fund’s primary benchmark index is the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The index is described below.
The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is designed to measure equity market performance of emerging markets.
After-tax returns are calculated using distributions for the Predecessor Fund’s Class I Shares for the period prior to June 5, 2017. If Class I Shares of the Fund had been available during periods prior to June 5, 2017, the distributions used to calculate the after-tax returns may have been different. After-tax returns are calculated using the historically highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes.Actual after-tax returns depend on your individual tax situation and may differ from those shown in the preceding table. The after-tax return information shown above does not apply to Fund shares held through a tax-advantaged account, such as a 401(k) plan or an IRA.
After-tax returns are only shown for Class I Shares of the Fund. After-tax returns for the other classes of Shares will vary from those shown for Class I Shares due to varying sales charges (as applicable), fees, and expenses among the classes.

***
Investors in certain tax-advantaged accounts or accounts held through certain wrap programs or bank trust platforms may not be subject to this minimum.
Purchases, exchanges, and redemptions can generally be made only through institutional channels, such as financial intermediaries and retirement platforms. Class I Shares may be purchased directly by certain institutional investors who established Class I Shares accounts before August 4, 2017. You should contact your financial intermediary or refer to your plan documents for information on how to invest in the Fund. Requests must be received in good order by the Fund or its agents (financial intermediary or plan sponsor, if applicable) prior to the close of the trading session of the New York Stock Exchange in order to receive that day’s net asset value. For additional information, refer to “Purchases,” “Exchanges,” and/or “Redemptions” in the Prospectus.
Tax information
The Fund’s distributions are taxable, and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account (in which case you may be taxed upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).

Payments to broker-dealers and other financial intermediaries
If you purchase Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class S Shares, Class I Shares, or Class T Shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund or its distributor (or its affiliates) may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment or to recommend one share class over another. There is some regulatory uncertainty concerning whether marketing support or other similar payments may be made or received in connection with Class I Shares where a financial intermediary has imposed its own sales charges or transaction fees. As a result, based on future regulatory developments, such payments may be terminated, or the Fund may prohibit financial intermediaries from imposing such sales charges or transaction fees in connection with Class I Shares. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive its investment advisory fee and/or reimburse operating expenses to the extent that the Fund’s total annual fund operating expenses (excluding the fees payable pursuant to a Rule 12b-1 plan, shareholder servicing fees, such as transfer agency fees (including out-of-pocket costs), administrative services fees and any networking/omnibus fees payable by any share class, brokerage commissions, interest, dividends, taxes, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) exceed 0.96% for at least a one-year period commencing on January 26, 2024. This contractual waiver may be terminated or modified only at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.
EXAMPLE:
The Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.The Example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and reinvest all dividends and distributions. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses are equal to the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement for the first year and the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses thereafter. Class C Shares automatically convert to Class A Shares

Portfolio Turnover: The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the Example, affect the Fund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 169% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal investment strategies
The Fund pursues its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of European companies. The Fund generally invests in a portfolio of 35-60 equity securities. Equity securities include common stocks and related securities. European companies are broadly defined to include any company that meets one or more of the following tests: (i) its country of organization, its primary business office and/or the principal trading market of its stock are located in Europe, (ii) 50% or more of its assets are located in Europe, or (iii) 50% or more of its revenues are derived from Europe.
Portfolio management seeks investments that will increase in value by emphasizing stock selection. Stock selection is based on an opportunistic approach which seeks to utilize stock specific criteria described below and global market and industry dynamics that are expected to drive stock prices of European companies. Portfolio management will invest in both “growth” stocks that portfolio management believes are reasonably priced and “value” stocks that are, in portfolio management’s opinion, undervalued. Companies are evaluated using a broad range of criteria, including: (i) a company’s financial strength; (ii) competitive position in its industry; and (iii) projected future earnings and cash flows.
The Fund may generally invest in companies located in Western European countries such as the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Portugal, France, Austria, Ireland, Italy and Spain. The Fund may, under unusual circumstances, invest in a single country or a limited number of countries.
In evaluating investment opportunities in various market conditions, portfolio management conducts fundamental research that considers factors such as a company’s historic and projected return on capital, the quality of a company’s management, and a company’s historical valuations, as well as valuation relative to the wider market.
The Fund will generally consider selling a stock when, in portfolio management’s opinion, there is a deterioration in the company’s fundamentals, the company fails to meet performance expectations, its earnings are disappointing, or its revenue growth has slowed. The Fund will also consider selling a stock if portfolio management believes that negative country, sector, or regional factors may affect the company’s outlook, or, in portfolio management’s opinion, a superior investment opportunity arises or to meet cash requirements.
The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading to achieve its investment objective. The Fund does not limit its investments to companies of any particular size and may invest a significant portion of its assets in smaller and less seasoned
20 | Janus Henderson European Focus Fund

issuers. However, in an attempt to reduce portfolio risks, portfolio management generally will invest across countries, industry groups and/or security types.
The Fund may seek to earn additional income through lending its securities to certain qualified broker-dealers and institutions on a short-term or long-term basis, in an amount equal to up to one-third of its total assets as determined at the time of the loan origination.
Principal investment risks
The biggest risk is that the Fund’s returns will vary, and you could lose money. The Fund is designed for long-term investors seeking an equity portfolio of European companies, including common stocks. Common stocks tend to be more volatile than many other investment choices. The principal risks associated with investing in the Fund are set forth below.
Market Risk.The value of the Fund’s portfolio may decrease due to short-term market movements and over more prolonged market downturns. As a result, the Fund’s net asset value may fluctuate and it may be more difficult to value or sell the Fund’s holdings. Market risk may affect a single issuer, industry, economic sector, or the market as a whole. Market risk may be magnified if certain social, political, economic, and other conditions and events (such as terrorism, conflicts, including related sanctions, social unrest, natural disasters, epidemics and pandemics, including COVID-19) adversely interrupt the global economy and financial markets. It is important to understand that the value of your investment may fall, sometimes sharply, in response to changes in the market, and you could lose money.
Foreign Exposure Risk.Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market. As a result, the Fund’s returns and net asset value may be affected by fluctuations in currency exchange rates or political or economic conditions in a particular country. In some foreign markets, there may not be protection against failure by other parties to complete transactions. It may not be possible for the Fund to repatriate capital, dividends, interest, and other income from a particular country or governmental entity. In addition, a market swing in one or more countries or regions where the Fund has invested a significant amount of its assets may have a greater effect on the Fund’s performance than it would in a more geographically diversified portfolio.
Portfolio Management Risk.The Fund is an actively managed investment portfolio and is therefore subject to the risk that the investment strategies and research process employed for the Fund may fail to produce the intended results. Accordingly, the Fund may underperform its benchmark index or other mutual funds with similar investment objectives.
Currency Risk.Currency risk is the risk that changes in the exchange rate between currencies will adversely affect the value (in U.S. dollar terms) of an investment. As long as the Fund holds a foreign security, its value will be affected by the value of the local currency relative to the U.S. dollar. When the Fund sells a foreign currency denominated security, its value may be worth less in U.S. dollars even if the security increases in value in its home country. U.S. dollar-denominated securities of foreign issuers may also be affected by currency risk, as the value of these securities may also be affected by changes in the issuer’s local currency.
Geographic Concentration Risk.To the extent the Fund invests a substantial amount of its assets in issuers located in a single country or region, the economic, political, social, regulatory, or other developments or conditions within such country or region will generally have a greater effect on the Fund than they would on a more geographically diversified fund, which may result in greater losses and volatility. Adverse developments in certain regions could also adversely affect securities of other countries whose economies appear to be unrelated and could have a negative impact on the Fund’s performance.
Europe Risk.The Fund is subject to certain risks related to Europe. Investments in British companies may subject the Fund to social, regulatory, political, currency, security, and economic risk specific to the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom has one of the largest economies in Europe, and the United States and other European countries are substantial trading partners of the United Kingdom. As a result, the British economy may be impacted by changes to the economic health of the United States and other European countries. Western Europe has, in certain instances, been susceptible to serious financial hardship, high debt levels, and high levels of unemployment. The European Union itself has experienced difficulties in connection with the debt loads of some of its member states.
Issuer Concentration Risk.The Fund’s portfolio may be comprised of a relatively small number of issuers in comparison to other funds. As a result, the Fund may be subject to greater risks than a fund that invests in a greater number of issuers. A change in the value of any single investment held by the Fund may affect the overall value of the Fund more than it would
21 | Janus Henderson European Focus Fund

affect a fund that holds more investments. In particular, the Fund may be more susceptible to adverse developments affecting any single issuer held by the Fund and may be susceptible to greater losses because of these developments.
Value Investing Risk.Because different types of stocks tend to shift in and out of favor depending on market and economic conditions, “value” stocks may perform differently than other types of stocks and from the market as a whole, and can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time. It is also possible that a value stock will never appreciate to the extent expected by portfolio management.
Growth Securities Risk.Securities of companies perceived to be “growth” companies may be more volatile than other stocks and may involve special risks. If portfolio management’s perception of a company’s growth potential is not realized, the securities purchased may not perform as expected, reducing the Fund’s returns. In addition, because different types of stocks tend to shift in and out of favor depending on market and economic conditions, “growth” stocks may perform differently from other types of securities and the market as a whole.
Portfolio Turnover Risk.Increased portfolio turnover may result in higher costs, which may have a negative effect on the Fund’s performance. In addition, higher portfolio turnover may result in the acceleration of capital gains and the recognition of greater levels of short-term capital gains, which are taxed at ordinary federal income tax rates when distributed to shareholders in a taxable account.
Small- and Mid-Sized Companies Risk.Investments in securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies, which can include smaller, start-up companies offering emerging products or services, may involve greater risks than are customarily associated with larger, more established companies. For example, small- and mid-sized companies may suffer more significant losses as a result of their narrow product lines, limited operating history, greater exposure to competitive threats, limited financial resources, limited trading markets, and the potential lack of management depth. Securities issued by small- and mid-sized companies tend to be more volatile and somewhat more speculative than securities issued by larger or more established companies and may underperform as compared to the securities of larger or more established companies. These holdings are also subject to wider price fluctuations and tend to be less liquid than stocks of larger or more established companies, which could have a significant adverse effect on the Fund’s returns, especially as market conditions change.
Securities Lending Risk.There is the risk that when portfolio securities are lent, the securities may not be returned on a timely basis, and the Fund may experience delays and costs in recovering the security or gaining access to the collateral provided to the Fund to collateralize the loan. If the Fund is unable to recover a security on loan, the Fund may use the collateral to purchase replacement securities in the market. There is a risk that the value of the collateral could decrease below the cost of the replacement security by the time the replacement investment is made, resulting in a loss to the Fund.
An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
Performance information
The following information provides some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing how the Fund’s performance has varied over time. Returns shown for periods prior to June 5, 2017, are those of Henderson European Focus Fund (the “Predecessor Fund”). The Predecessor Fund was advised by Henderson Global Investors (North America) Inc. and subadvised by Henderson Investment Management Limited. Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class I Shares, and Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund were reorganized into Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class I Shares, and Class N Shares, respectively, of the Fund on June 2, 2017. Class A Shares and Class C Shares of the Predecessor Fund commenced operations with the Predecessor Fund’s inception on August 31, 2001. Class I Shares and Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund commenced operations on March 31, 2009 and November 30, 2015, respectively. Class S Shares and Class T Shares of the Fund commenced operations on June 5, 2017.
The performance shown for Class A Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class C Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class C Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class C Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
22 | Janus Henderson European Focus Fund

The performance shown for Class I Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class I Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers, except that for periods prior to March 31, 2009, performance shown for Class I Shares reflects the performance of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the fees and expenses of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund (without sales charges), net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class N Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund and is calculated using the fees and expenses of Class R6 Shares of the Predecessor Fund, in effect during the periods shown, net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers, except that for periods prior to November 30, 2015, performance shown for Class N Shares reflects the performance of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the fees and expenses of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund (without sales charges), net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class S Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the fees and expenses of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund (without sales charges), net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
The performance shown for Class T Shares for periods prior to June 5, 2017, reflects the performance of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund, calculated using the fees and expenses of Class A Shares of the Predecessor Fund (without sales charges), net of any applicable fee and expense limitations or waivers.
Returns of the Fund will be different from the Predecessor Fund as they have different expenses.
The bar chart depicts the change in performance from year to year during the periods indicated. The bar chart figures do not include any applicable sales charges that an investor may pay when they buy or sell Class A Shares or Class C Shares of the Fund. If sales charges were included, the returns would be lower.The table compares the Fund’s average annual returns for the periods indicated to a broad-based securities market index. All figures assume reinvestment of dividends and distributions. For certain periods, the Fund’s performance reflects the effect of expense waivers. Without the effect of these expense waivers, the performance shown would have been lower.
The Fund’s (and the Predecessor Fund’s) past performance (before and after taxes) does not necessarily indicate how the Fund will perform in the future. Updated performance information is available at janushenderson.com/performance or by calling 1-877-335-2687.

The Fund’s primary benchmark index is the MSCI Europe Index. The index is described below.
The MSCI Europe Index is designed to measure developed market equity performance in Europe.
After-tax returns are calculated using distributions for the Predecessor Fund’s Class A Shares for the period prior to June 5, 2017. If Class A Shares of the Fund had been available during periods prior to June 5, 2017, the distributions used to calculate the after-tax returns may have been different. After-tax returns are calculated using the historically highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes.Actual after-tax returns depend on your individual tax situation and may differ from those shown in the preceding table. The after-tax return information shown above does not apply to Fund shares held through a tax-advantaged account, such as a 401(k) plan or an IRA.
After-tax returns are only shown for Class A Shares of the Fund. After-tax returns for the other classes of Shares will vary from those shown for Class A Shares due to varying sales charges (as applicable), fees, and expenses among the classes.

Class A, Class C, Class S, and Class T shares held through certain supermarket and/or self-directed brokerage accounts, or through wrap programs, may not be subject to these minimums. Please contact your financial intermediary for more information.
***
Investors in certain tax-advantaged accounts or accounts held through certain wrap programs or bank trust platforms may not be subject to this minimum.
Purchases, exchanges, and redemptions can generally be made only through institutional channels, such as financial intermediaries and retirement platforms. Class I Shares may be purchased directly by certain institutional investors who established Class I Shares accounts before August 4, 2017. You should contact your financial intermediary or refer to your plan documents for information on how to invest in the Fund. Requests must be received in good order by the Fund or its agents (financial intermediary or plan sponsor, if applicable) prior to the close of the trading session of the New York Stock Exchange in order to receive that day’s net asset value. For additional information, refer to “Purchases,” “Exchanges,” and/or “Redemptions” in the Prospectus.
Tax information
The Fund’s distributions are taxable, and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account (in which case you may be taxed upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to broker-dealers and other financial intermediaries
If you purchase Class A Shares, Class C Shares, Class S Shares, Class I Shares, or Class T Shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund or its distributor (or its affiliates) may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment or to recommend one share class over another. There is some regulatory uncertainty concerning whether marketing support or other similar payments may be made or received in connection with Class I Shares where a financial intermediary has imposed its own sales charges or transaction fees. As a result, based on future regulatory developments, such payments may be terminated, or the Fund may prohibit financial intermediaries from imposing such sales charges or transaction fees in connection with Class I Shares. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.
