Fund Objective

The fund aims to deliver capital growth over the long term (that is, over five years or more) by investing at least 80% of the fund in the shares of smaller Japanese companies (companies that make up the bottom third of all publicly listed companies in Japan, in terms of stockmarket value). Income is not a consideration when choosing investments. Stocks are selected from across a wide range of industries. The fund manager focuses on stocks where he believes the share price is not fully valuing the company's sustainable earnings over the medium to long term. The portfolio typically holds between 30 and 50 stocks.
