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.
