Manulife Asset Management has been awarded a Japan Core Fixed Income Active mandate by Daiwa Asset Management Co Ltd to be added to their ‘Japan Bond Select’ platform, a part of their wrap account product ‘Daiwa Fund Wrap’.

 

The JPY7,335 million (approx USD89 million) mandate was awarded to Manulife following a competitive pitch process. Manulife is one of three managers to be chosen by Daiwa to be added to this platform.

Managing the mandate is Manulife Asset Management’s Japan fixed income team, led by Head of Fixed Income, Japan and Portfolio Manager, Keisuke Tsumoto, with support of a team of five—made up of two portfolio managers and three credit analysts.

Naru Ishida, Head of Manulife Asset Management Japan says: "We are delighted that Daiwa Asset Management Co Ltd has awarded Manulife Asset Management with such an important mandate for its Daiwa Fund Wrap. The local expertise and experience of our investment team, which averages to over 18 years, together with the investment management rigour of a global organisation means that we are well placed to deliver strong returns for this mandate."
