Fund objective
The fund aims to deliver capital growth over the long term (that is, over five years or more) by investing in a wide range of Japanese company shares. Income is not a consideration when choosing investments. The fund manager selects shares in Japanese companies across a range of industries and company sizes. He focuses on stocks where he believes the share price is not fully valuing the company's sustainable earnings over the medium to long term. The portfolio typically holds between 30 and 50 stocks.
