Important information - the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest.

JAPANESE equities have been largely out of favour for as long as many people can remember, but there’s a real resurgence in the Japanese equity market right now. Adding to the sense that the era of false dawns is over and Japan is finally coming into its own, was the rare visit to the country by legendary investor Warren Buffett. He has made clear that he is keen on adding to his portfolio of Japanese investments.

To find out more, I spoke to long-term Tokyo resident and portfolio manager of the Fidelity Japan Trust, Nicholas Price, when he was recently back in London. He told me about the changes he’s seeing on the ground, the sectors he’s looking at right now and his investment in The Oriental Land Company.

Important information - investors should note that the views expressed may no longer be current and may have already been acted upon. Overseas investments will be affected by movements in currency exchange rates. Reference to specific securities should not be construed as a recommendation to buy or sell these securities and is included for the purposes of illustration only. The shares in the Fidelity Japan Trust are listed on the London Stock Exchange and their price is affected by supply and demand. The trust can gain additional exposure to the market, known as gearing, potentially increasing volatility. The trust uses financial derivative instruments for investment purposes, which may expose it to a higher degree of risk and can cause investments to experience larger than average price fluctuations. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to one of Fidelity’s advisers or an authorised financial adviser of your choice.
