Fund Provider SPARX Asset Management Co Ltd
Fund Summary The Fund's objective is to provide long-term capital growth by identifying and acquiring undervalued Japanese equities by capitalizing on the Investment Advisor's intensive in-house research expertise and extensive information network established through independent investment experience in Japan since 1989. The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. In seeking to achieve its objective, the Fund will normally invest at least 80% of its assets in equity securities of Japanese companies, and in any event, will at all times invest at least two-thirds of its total assets in equity securities issued by companies which are domiciled or exercise the predominant part of their economic activity in Japan. The Fund may invest the rest of its assets in ancillary liquid assets such as money market instruments (including banker’s acceptances, commercial paper and negotiable certificates of deposit) or cash deposits. The Fund will invest primarily in securities denominated in Japanese yen. The Fund's portfolio is actively managed, and investment selection is research driven. As an actively managed Fund, portfolio holdings are not selected by reference to a specific index or other benchmark. The number of holdings held by the Fund will vary, but the Fund will at most times hold more than 30 holdings.
