Behind the Screens: Japan - not the obvious choice

28 Apr, 2023 | Return|

Investors don’t tend to think of Japan as a breeding ground for opportunity, and it is perhaps not the most obvious choice for those seeking to maximise yield. However, with encouraging growth prospects and a demographic shift that offers potential if played right, are we missing a trick by pushing Japan to the sidelines?

This week, Dan Carter, Fund Manager of the A-Rated Jupiter Japan Income fund, joined Jock Glover on Behind the Screens to share why Japan is different from other developed markets, why the risk of Japanese irrelevance keeps him up at night and how they are positioning the portfolio to reflect the trends they are seeing in the region.
