Japan investment opportunity – Japan economy to surge on border opening (LON:JSGI)


Japan income fundJPMorgan Japan Small Cap Growth & Income (LONJSGI) has published its latest fact sheet for the month ending 31 August 2022.

As widely reported this month, Japan plans to open its borders to foreign visitors from 11 October after two years of border closures to control the spread of Covid. The Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, also announced a domestic travel incentive scheme to encourage locals to spend. Both initiatives will serve to stimulate the world’s 3rd largest economy and give a boost to local businesses and the government. 

The investment objective of the JSGI investment trust is to produce long-term capital growth through investment in small and medium-sized Japanese companies. Investment is permitted in Japanese quoted companies, other than the largest 200, measured by market capitalisation, emphasising capital growth rather than income. The Company has the ability to use borrowing to gear the portfolio and its current policy is to operate within the range of 5% net cash to 15% geared in normal market conditions. The Company pays quarterly dividends without compromising on the objective of achieving capital growth, funded from dividends from investment holdings and capital reserves, equivalent to 1% of its net asset value, set on the last business day of each financial quarter.

Japan income fund, JPMorgan Japan Small Cap Growth & Income plc (LON:JSGI / JSGI.L), targets Japan income without compromising on Japanese growth opportunities. This Japan fund is an income investing opportunity that gives investors access to a diverse and fast growing sector managed by local managers. The Investment Trust offers a regular quarterly income by paying a higher dividend funded part by capital reserves as well as revenue returns.
