Investing in Japan
As a wealth management company in Japan, we are intimately aware of the potential there is to invest in this country. Here are a few reasons why investing in Japan is such a good idea:
- Pro-Business Policies
Japan did not become one of the world’s largest economies by mistake. The country has a high level of business sophistication, a complex economy that is business-oriented, a range of local suppliers that are known for the quality of their products, as well as solid controls for international distribution. In fact, 51 of the Fortune Global Top 500 Companies are based out of Japan.
Japan’s pro-business policy is supported by internal stability, making it a great place in which to invest.
- Strong Emphasis on R&D Investments
The Japanese Government has a strong commitment to R&D, as does the private sector. The country has some of the strongest intellectual property laws anywhere in the world, making it the perfect place for businesses focused on R&D to flourish.
Because of this, wealth management firms often give their clients options to invest in companies that focus heavily on research and development.
- Abenomics Showing Results
The Japanese economy, which has suffered from decades of stagnation is now finally bouncing back. Since 2017, the country has seen a bullish market, and that trend is still continuing.
Abenomics, a term coined to refer to the economic policies set in motion by Shinzo Abe, has slowly and surely pulled Japan out of its limbo. Now, investors are waiting for the Third Arrow of Abenomics – the country’s inflation rates – that will infuse its economy with even more funds. With this infusion, Japan will be a fruit ripe to be plucked by investors.
- Japanese Equity Funds
The privatization of Japan’s equity industry has been welcomed by investors across the world. The country’s equity funds are considered to be one of the best pension funds in the world in which to invest. So, with their privatization, it opens up a whole new world of opportunity for global asset managers across the world.
- Leader in Technology
Japan is considered to be one of the world leaders in technology and robotics, and this is where the future lies. And the interesting thing is that it is not the multinational giants that are leading the way, but startups and medium sized companies, making them perfect for long-term investments.
