Our view on this fund

HL Research

Japan was one of the best performing markets in 2013, having been shaken up by its new government's policies. We believe BlackRock's tracker fund is an excellent way to invest in over 450 Japanese companies at low cost.

Fund Objective

The aim of the Fund is to seek to achieve capital growth for investors by tracking closely the performance of the FTSE Japan Index by investing in companies in the Index. Investment will be made directly into constituent companies and via other transferable securities giving exposure to such companies. The Fund may also invest in permitted money market instruments, permitted deposits, and units in collective investment schemes. Derivatives and forward transactions may be used for the purposes of efficient portfolio management.
