John Bennett, director of European equities at Janus Henderson, has announced that he will retire form the company in a year’s time to focus on running Glasgow Rangers FC, as chairman of the board of the club he has supported since childhood, according to a report by FT Advisor.

Bennett, who is manager of the Janus Henderson Continental European and Pan-European funds, roles he has held since 2011 when his previous company Gartmore was acquired by Janus Henderson, will work closely with the existing team to transition his responsibilities ahead of his departure in August 2024.

Robert Schramm-Fuchs will remain as the primary fund manager on the Pan-European team’s Large Cap Long/Short strategies, and will also assume responsibility for the European Focus fund alongside Marc Schartz.

Tom O’Hara and Tom Lemaigre meanwhile, who have been working closely alongside Bennett for the past five years, will assume primary portfolio management responsibilities on the Pan-European team’s Long Only strategies that they currently co-manage with him.

Prior to Gartmore, Bennett served as fund manager at Global Asset Management for 17 years, managing the firm’s flagship European long-only and European equity long/short hedge funds. Proper to that he was a fund manager at Ivory & Sime.
