Nikko AM launches new Japan fund

Nikko Asset Management has launched a Luxembourg domiciled Japan Focus Equity Ucits fund.

The fund will be managed by senior fund manager Yuki Watanabe and builds on an existing Japan domiciled strategy which has been managed by Wantabe since August 2012.

The Japan Focus strategy aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in a portfolio of more than 30 stocks.

“Our Japan Focus fund has been launched in response to investor demand for specialist expertise in actively managed investments in Japan,” said Watanabe.

“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” he adds.
