  • Public Japan Global Equity Fund (PJGEF or the Fund) invests at least 30% of its net asset value (NAV) in the Japan market and the balance across the other global markets.
  • As at 29 January 2021, 92.1% of PJGEF’s NAV was invested in equities while 7.9% of NAV was invested in money market instruments. The Fund focused on sectors such as Technology, Communications, Consumer and Industrial across the Japan, U.S., China and Korea markets.
  • From its commencement on 23 December 2019 up to 29 January 2021, the Fund registered a total return of +31.60% to outperform its benchmark’s return of +14.81%. This outperformance was driven by the rise in IT hardware and software stocks in the Japan and global markets which benefited from the accelerated adoption of digital products and services due to social distancing measures amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Going forward, the Fund will look to be positioned in selected counters within the Technology, Industrial and Healthcare sectors in the Japan and global markets which have resilient earnings profiles and are supported by the long-term structural trends of digitalisation, demand for increased productivity and an ageing population.
