AMO launches two new Luxembourg domiciled UCITS Funds

Asset Management One launches two new UCITS Funds to add to its pre-existing stable of UCITS funds domiciled in Luxembourg for EMEA institutional and wholesale investors. The AMO Japan Growth Equity Portfolio focuses on listed companies in Japan with a competitive advantage and high management quality driving long-term earnings growth. AMO Japan Value Equity Portfolio identifies the underlying value of stocks, investing in undervalued stocks compared to their intrinsic value based on in-depth fundamental research. 

Asset Management One International Ltd., the international arm of leading asset management company Asset Management One Co., Ltd. (Asset Management One) with over $504bn AUM*, announces the launch of a further two Luxembourg domiciled UCITS funds; Japan Growth Equity portfolio and the Japan Value Equity portfolio, with additional funds in the pipeline.

Japan Growth Equity

The Japan Growth Equity portfolio invests in companies with long-term high growth potential. The fund focuses on listed companies in Japan with a competitive advantage and high management quality driving long-term earnings growth. The Fund Manager applies continuous and comprehensive bottom-up research, both qualitative and quantitative, which enables the Fund to achieve high sustainable growth in the long-run whilst coping with changes in the macroeconomic environment. Managed by lead Fund Manager Mr. Seiichiro Iwamoto in our Tokyo headquarters, the Fund uses multifaceted in-depth company and industry analysis to identify undiscovered high growth companies run by quality management ahead of our peers. Our proprietary Growth Category Framework allows us to capitalise on a wide range of growth opportunities, beyond the conventional industry framework, at the right time and stage of the growth cycle, aiming to outperform the Benchmark in the medium to long term.

Japan Value Equity

The Japan Value Equity portfolio identifies the underlying value of stocks, investing in undervalued stocks compared to their intrinsic value based on in-depth fundamental research. Using our proprietary valuation model which uses the long-term future cash flow forecasts of our in-house analysts in order to assess the attractiveness of each stock, the Fund aims to outperform the Benchmark in the medium to long-term. Mr. Kouji Iwasaki, Lead Fund Manager, has managed the underlying Japan Research Value Plus Strategy since inception in 2008, investing in stocks that are temporarily priced below their intrinsic value and taking profit once prices return to their fair value.

One of the largest Japanese asset managers of Japanese institutional assets, Asset Management One offers Japanese and Asian investment strategies and liquidity solutions to pension funds, financial institutions, endowments and some of the world’s largest institutional, wholesale and corporate investors.
