The fund aims to provide capital growth. At least 80% of the fund will be invested in shares of Japanese companies. The fund has no bias to any particular industry or size of company. Investment is based on Japan's economic strengths, such as its manufacturing industry (in particular those parts that are demonstrating an ability to exploit newly emerging technology) and on sectors benefiting from structural change in the economy. The fund leverages Tokyo based in-house research to identify and invest in attractively valued companies - those whose share prices appear low relative to long-term profit potential. These opportunities are likely to be found across a broad range of industries and are identified by an intensive programme of inhouse company contact and analysis. The fund may also invest in other financial instruments and hold cash on deposit. Derivatives may be used to reduce risk or manage the fund more effectively.
