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. Former Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, introduced policies designed to stimulate the economy and reignite interest in Japan's markets. Investor sentiment began to change but after 8 years at the helm, he announced his retirement and was replaced by Yoshihide Suga in September 2020. Suga's appointment initially offered the promise of fresh and progressive government policies and continued economic support. His tenure was dominated by the pandemic and he faced criticism over how he handled the virus. After one year in office, he stepped down as Prime Minister and has been replaced by fellow Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) member Fumio Kishida.
