Mitsuhiro Yuasa provides an update regarding the current macroeconomic environment in the Japanese equity markets and how he and his team are positioning the Fund accordingly, with a focus on growth stocks with a bias towards construction and those companies that have the potential to benefit as a result of the structural societal changes in a post COVID-19 world.
During the webinar, Mitsuhiro provides insight on the following:
- The portfolio’s increased cash position to soften the sharp drawdown at the beginning of the pandemic, with the portfolio focused on quality growth stocks.
- Top holdings in the last six months and the rationale behind the addition of Information & Communication stocks.
- A dramatic change in the lifestyle of Japanese people since COVID-19 resulting in a shift in allocation.
- 50+ year old infrastructure woes and natural disasters lead to investment in infrastructure.
- Maintaining a balanced portfolio for 2H 2020, as volatility expected to continue due to pandemic and rising geopolitical tensions.
