Proven track record – delivering strong absolute returns since 1998*
Outperforming benchmark since inception* through fundamentals-driven stock selection
A carefully curated portfolio of Japanese and Korean companies
Popular media has made Japan the poster child of developed markets plagued by an ageing population and prolonged economic stagnation. The Platinum Japan Fund, however, has delivered strong returns since inception in 1998, both in absolute terms and relative to the MSCI Japan Net Index (A$),* testifying to the robustness of our stock selection method and the depth of our team’s understanding of Japanese companies.
An Australian-registered, open-ended managed fund, the fund seeks to provide capital growth over the long-term by investing in undervalued companies in Japan (and, to a lesser extent, Korea).
