“Japanese technology companies have long attracted overseas investors and this trend shows no sign of abating,” notes Takeshi Iitani, a founding member of southgate, a law firm established in 2016 that gives Japanese and international lawyers an equal say in how the firm is managed and projects are run.
“Foreign investors have traditionally valued Japanese engineering and continue to be on the lookout for manufacturers of machinery and technical components but, more recently, we have also seen an interest in software and IT companies, especially by overseas VC investors.”
Japan income fund, JPMorgan Japan Small Cap Growth & Income (LONJSGI), targets Japan income without compromising on Japanese growth opportunities. This Japan income investing opportunity gives investors access to a diverse and fast growing sector managed by local managers.
