Investment objective
The principal investment objective of the Company is to achieve capital growth from an actively managed portfolio principally comprising securities listed on the Japanese stock markets, with the aim of achieving growth in excess of the TSE Index in sterling over the longer term.


Why we like the fund: This fund is invested in companies listed in Japan where knowledge of the local market is vital. This is because Japanese companies and the governance of them often differs from other parts of the world. The Schroder Japan team is largely made up of Japanese nationals, based in Japan, and it benefits from excellent research covering the local equity market. The team has a contrarian approach, which complements the other funds in this category. How to use the fund This fund is an investment trust, which gives the manager more freedom to invest relative to an open-ended fund. For example, it can borrow money to invest and it does (albeit fairly modest amounts). Because interest rates are low in Japan, the cost of doing so is negligible. The trust also owns smaller companies, which is something an investment trust can do more comfortably because liquidity is easier to manage. This fund may form part of the riskier allocations in a diversified portfolio.
