Our view on this Fund
This fund is on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. However, this is not a recommendation to buy.
Stephen Harker is one of the UK's most experienced investors in Japanese companies.
He does things differently from many other managers. That's one of the reasons we like this fund. After all, you can't do better than everyone else if you do the same.
Harker invests in companies shunned by other investors, possibly because something's gone wrong, or they're in an unfashionable area of the market. Importantly, he must think they have the potential to turn around and return to favour. This approach needs patience as businesses can be unloved for some time. We trust him to find more winners than losers over the long run.
Harker's long-term track record is superb. Our research shows his stock-picking is excellent, though past performance isn't a guide to future returns. We think the fund is an excellent choice for long-term investing in Japan.
