Masaki Taketsume took over from Andrew Rose in June 2019, having been co-manager since October 2017. Before that, he spent 10 years in Schroder's Japanese equity research team as a technology analyst. He invests in a wide variety of companies and sectors, and takes a relatively conservative approach. He also has the support of Schroders' team of analysts, which is positive.
But he hasn't been a fund manager long enough to convince us he'll deliver strong performance in the future. All fund managers go through periods where their investment style is out of favour. But if a manager is less experienced, it's harder to have confidence they'll pull it back.
We feel that for making a new investment there are funds more likely to make the most of Japan's potential.
