Nikko Asset Management launches Japan Focus Equity strategy

RELATED TOPICS​

Nikko Asset Management has launched a Luxembourg domiciled Japan Focus Equity UCITS fund managed by Yuki Watanabe.

The Japan Focus strategy aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in a portfolio of more than 30 stocks. The team takes an active investment approach based on thorough fundamental research, analysing long term structural trends and identifying companies that benefit from them.
 
The UCITS fund is based on an existing strategy domiciled in Japan, which has been managed by Watanabe since August 2012. As of 31 March, 2016, the fund has returned 26.15 per cent annually since September 2012 compared with an annualised 21.24 per cent rise in the TOPIX Total Return Index.
 
“Our Japan Focus fund has been launched in response to investor demand for specialist expertise in actively managed investments in Japan,” says Watanabe, Senior Fund Manager of the Nikko AM Japan Focus Fund. “We have strong relationships locally which provide our team with unique insights into the underlying companies, and the ability to tap into opportunities that may have otherwise been overlooked.”
 
The fund provides access to Nikko Asset Management’s proven investment team and market leading resources. The company has approximately 200 investment professionals operating in 11 countries, nine of which are based in Asia
