As one of the largest financial groups in the world and the largest in Japan MUFG understandably has a significant presence in the Japanese fund market, both in the products available to clients and its distribution network.
We are delighted to make this expertise available to our European clients either via UCITS SICAVs domiciled in Luxembourg or through investment Mandates allowing clients to utilise a specific strategy managed within their specified set risk parameters.
Details and document relating to our range of UCITS SICAV Funds can be seen below:
The fund focuses on companies that can achieve both long-term growth and have a high ability to deliver earnings growth regardless of the external environment. The team conduct bottom-up research to identify such stocks, focusing strongly on growth drivers and management ability.
Run from our Singapore office since its inception in 2013 the MUFG Asia Pacific ex Japan Equity Stable Growth Fund has a proven track record in identifying ‘Stable Growth Stocks’. Using fundamental, bottom up analysis, it seeks to invest in companies providing greater growth than the market whilst taking less risk regardless of the external environment, such as the macro-economic conditions.
The fund aims to deliver consistent returns against the benchmark by investing in the securities of Asia Pacific countries excluding Japan. The manager utilises a proprietary quantitative value model to select stocks.
Following on from the success of the Japanese domiciled strategy launched in September 2011 the MUFG Japan Equity Focus Growth Fund enables professional UCITS SICAV investors to access the fund. Aiming to provide consistent growth with less risk than the market, the team’s investment style is characterised by in-depth fundamental analysis of Japanese companies including a strong focus on engagement with senior company management and ESG integration, which results in a low turnover, high conviction, concentrated portfolio of stocks.
When it comes to Japanese Small Caps we believe being based in Japan is key. Since its launch in March 2015 the specialist Small Cap Team have focused on selecting stocks that provide long term returns and deliver sustainable growth potential through economic cycles, but are not yet rated by the market including both Small and Micro Cap stocks. A theme-based and bottom-up stock picking strategy, in this sector on the ground knowledge and access to companies is essential to successful research and company selection.
Expanding on the MUFG Japan Equity Small Cap Fund’s success, the MUFG Japan Equity Small & Mid Cap Fund is run using the same team, philosophy and process. With a cross-over of small cap stocks the team are able to explore new and previously owned shares as well as continue holding those whose fundamentals and growth potential remain strong as they move into the mid cap space.
