Golden Week – non-dealing days in this fund

Please note that we are declaring a number of non-dealing days for this fund. Non-dealing days will be in place from Monday 1 May to Monday 8 May 2023, with dealing resuming on 9 May 2023. This is due to the ‘Golden Week’ holiday period in Japan, which will see stock markets and banks closed for several days.


The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
Performance target: To outperform the TOPIX Index by 2% per annum, before the deduction of charges, over any 5 year period.


The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a concentrated portfolio of shares (also known as equities) of companies, of any size, in any industry, in Japan. Companies will be incorporated, headquartered, listed on an exchange in, or deriving significant revenue from, Japan. The portfolio may be concentrated in terms of its number of holdings and/or the size of its largest holdings.
The Fund may also invest in other assets including cash.
The investment manager may use derivatives (complex financial instruments) to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently.
The Fund is actively managed with reference to the TOPIX Index, which is broadly representative of the companies in which it may invest, as this forms the basis of the Fund's performance target. The investment manager has discretion to choose investments for the Fund with weightings different to the index or not in the index.
As an additional means of assessing the performance of the Fund, the IA Japan sector average, which is based on a peer group of broadly similar funds, may also provide a useful comparator.


The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
Potential investors must read the prospectus, and where relevant, the key investor information document before investing.
