London – Daiwa SB Investments (DSBI), one of Japan’s largest asset managers, has today announced the launch of its latest UCITS fund within the Luxembourg domiciled SICAV.
The Japan Equity Small Cap Absolute Value Fund is managed out of Tokyo and led by Portfolio Manager Tatsuro Nigauri. The strategy has been in existence since 2004 on a segregated basis. Notably, the launch of this new UCITS fund now allows a broader range of investors, including pension funds, insurance companies, wealth managers and private banks to access the strategy.
The Small Cap Absolute Value strategy has consistently achieved positive double-digit returns over the past eight years (to 31 December 2016) and has delivered 11.93% per annum absolute return since inception (gross of fees), a track record that will reassure investors of DSBI’s proven investment ability.
