His fund has a significant overweight in Japan. This is a 5-year secular story. Japanese companies have done a very good job of improving their profitability.

This would be fine if you want to invest in the Japanese market. Japanese GDP is starting to grow, but slowly.

The US$ had some strength against the yen today but, overall, the last year or so, he has been beginning to see signs of strength coming from the Japanese economy. This would be a very good place to have exposure.

Likes to bet where he can win twice. The Japanese yen is in an uptrend and the Japanese stocks are in an uptrend. If he can make 5% on the currency and another 5%-6% on the market, it’ll be a good year. If he’s wrong on one, the other one might save him.

Japan has had a very difficult year as a market. However, the growth rate exceeded his expectations. Have made good structural changes with strong balance sheets and margins at record highs.

This is one way of having international access without having to own individual shares. It has had a 40% increase in the last year so only buy half a position now and fill the rest of your position later on.

Prefers to be an active investor and buy individual stocks rather than buying a basket of stocks where some are good and some are bad.
