Our view on this Fund
This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell. However, if you are thinking of adding to your investments we believe Wealth 50 funds are superior alternatives. View funds on the Wealth 50 »
Scott McGlashan and Ruth Nash are proven fund managers. Each has more than two decades' experience investing in Japan. They invest in companies of any size, including higher-risk smaller ones. It's this, as well as their focus on unloved companies, that sets the fund apart from its peers. Plus its relatively small size means it's agile enough to invest in new opportunities quickly.
Overall we think this fund is a reasonable choice for investing in Japan but we don't like the fact it comes with a performance fee. The fund also has a higher ongoing charge than our favoured funds investing in this area.
