Fund objective
The sub-fund's management objective is to maximise capital gains over the medium term. To achieve this objective, the sub-fund will adopt an active and selective policy to pick the stocks of Japanese companies notably likely to comply with the following criteria. Equities that are undervalued due to a significant drop in their share price due to market factors (e.g. lack of liquidity, major profit-taking, sales momentum, temporary fall in profits), whereas their 45/144 fundamental qualities remain unchanged and/or their profits offer the potential for a quick recovery (“fallen angels”, small and mid-caps, etc.). Accelerated restructuring of certain key sectors (e.g. retail, pharmaceutical industry) brought about by the reform of the Japanese law governing commercial companies, facilitating mergers and acquisitions by foreign companies, as well as business combinations between Japanese firms.
