The fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth by investing principally in the shares of smaller Japanese companies, which are stocks in the bottom third in terms of market capitalisation. The fund manager adopts a ‘value’ approach, meaning that in-depth analysis is applied to find companies that are trading at prices below the potential returns they are likely to generate over the medium to long term.
