Our view on the sector

Japan is home to some of the best-known businesses on the planet. Toyota, Honda, Panasonic, and Nintendo to name a few. There are also lesser-known businesses with the potential to be the household names of tomorrow. But years of sluggish growth put people off investing in the country. This changed after Shinzo Abe was elected Prime Minister in 2012. He introduced a number of policies to stimulate economic growth and created more interest in Japan's markets. We think Japanese funds could diversify a global portfolio focused on long-term growth. There are a handful of fund managers we think have the potential to outperform the broader Japanese market over the long term, each with different approaches.
