From National Underwriter
Janus, of course, is the two-faced Greek God who watched over significant entrances and exits of Rome - including the gates of the city.

During the last leg of the bull market cash has flowed into Denver faster than the fund company could put it to work. No, according to reports, it is facing "huge withdrawals". Nearly one-quarter, or about $75 billion of the firm's $300 billion in assets have been deposited by investors since 1999. It saw redemptions of $122 million in September.

He was comparing the new Regulation FD to fund rules. Roye replied by suggesting that large funds would be harmed getting into and out of positions if they were required to provide more frequent disclosure. Supporting Phillips in the criticisms was financial planner Harold R. Evensky.
