loganair: JPMorgan Japanese: For the neutral observer, it’s good to see Baillie Gifford is not getting its way everywhere and in Japan we have a bit of an upset for the company. A ‘blockbuster’ 12 months to the end of August saw last year’s third-placed JPMorgan Japanese (JFJ) overtake former sector leader Baillie Gifford Japan (BGFD) to win our award this year. Stifel analyst Anthony Stern was impressed with JFJ’s 20% growth in net asset value for the financial year, not just because it trounced the 1% dip in Japan’s Topix index (in sterling terms), but because Nicholas Weindling and Miyako Urabe’s portfolio of growth stocks proved comparatively defensive in the coronavirus crash, declining 15% in the February-March sell-off, which was about half the descent of rivals BGFD and Fidelity Japan Values (FJV). Although the other two trusts have rebounded faster since then, JFJ’s 42% rally from the March lows is still impressive and, combined with its earlier resilience, leaves it with the best three-year NAV return and information ratio, with BGFD not making it into the short list although the smaller companies focused Baillie Gifford Shin Nippon does.
lozzer69: Not sure anyone is on this post but bought into JFJ early this year. Very impressed with manager who was on a video chat. I like the fact that he and the team are in Tokyo and track record is impressive. Still on a discount unlike BG shin nippon.
nod: A big fall here, don't know why. I haven't got my cash yet from JP Morgan. It's funny when you sell funds and you live overseas they always decide the fund managers don't have the appropriate identification verification information on their records. Yet, we've provided the identification required to the previous managers of the fund and sometimes the managers before them.I've lost track of the fund managers on this fund. It was Jardine Fleming, hence the JFJ ticker.Why do investor identification and verification records never get passed on when funds are sold? It's very time-consuming to get joint-holder documents verified by a JP or whoever.
nod: I've closed my JFJ investment at end February. My return was over 150% so that's okay for a fund.
nod: I've been in JFJ for eight years now. My timing was good but the return of around 150% over 8 years is much less than I had anticipated. Growth has been steady rather than spectacular.
nod: JFJ appears to be going against the trend in Japan, which is considerably up over the past 4 months. Many big investors think the up trend is going to continue helped by the USA."A lot of things are lining up for Japanese equities," said Bryan Goh, the Singapore-based chief investment officer of Bordier & Cie, which oversees about $9 billion. "It looks like the economy is stabilizing and the weak currency is certainly helping. There's some momentum behind this bull run."The market's latest tailwind comes from America, where Trump's shock election victory has fueled speculation that increased government spending will lead to higher U.S. interest rates and a stronger dollar. That's good news for Japan because it translates into a weaker yen and an improved earnings outlook for exporters like Toyota Motor Corp. The Japanese currency has dropped 6 percent versus the greenback over the past month, more than any other major Asian currency."This is a very big regime change in U.S. economic policy that could be a game-changer for the yen and the Japanese stock market," said Naoki Murakami, a Tokyo-based market strategist at AllianceBernstein, which oversees about $483 billion worldwide.Trump-induced equity gains over the past two weeks have built on optimism over the BOJ's decision to refrain from pushing interest rates further into negative territory, a policy that had battered bank shares earlier this year. A better-than-estimated 2.2 percent Japanese economic growth figure for the third quarter also added to the bullish sentiment, despite evidence that private consumption remains tepid."Market behavior is looking good and government policy is supportive," said Rob Weatherston, a manager of Japanese equities at Old Mutual Global Investors in Hong Kong.
thomasthetank1: Read Stockdale's note on JPMorgan Japanese Investment Trust (JFJ), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// … “The sharp rally in the yen is running into fundamental headwinds, though history reminds us that the current rally could run for much longer. We believe that the Japanese economy is going to have a fiscal crisis in a few years, unless inflation rises from current levels, which is unlikely to happen if the yen strengthens further. We therefore expect to see strong monetary and fiscal measures from the authorities in Japan. We believe that the combination of a stable yen and government support still makes the Japanese equity market one of the best medium-term investment opportunities. We continue to ... JPMorgan Japanese Investment Trust (JFJ).…”
nod: Over the past three months the performance of JFJ has been well below the Nikkei. Perhaps this is partly down to the premium being lowered on the JFJ fund.I don't have a feel for the state of the Japan economy over the next 12 months. Consumer confidence and spending in the West has been improving but how much are Japanese companies benefiting from this?
nod: The Nikkei has taken a pasting the past two weeks to hit a 4-month low. JFJ similarly down.
nod: There are other ways to bet on currency movements than investment funds. JFJ has gone up 45% in the past 12 months while the currency depreciation of the Yen against Sterling has been 25%. Could JFJ have placed bets that would have given the fund a better annual return? Probably. Hindsight is a wonderful investment tool. I'm happy with 45% :)
