Depending on their mandate, these funds may invest in equities, fixed income, commodities, and alternatives. However, equities are the most common asset class, followed by fixed-income. These funds cover a wide range of sectors and industries, as well as market capitalization. Lastly, these funds can be passive (aka index funds) or actively managed. The Japanese economy, the third largest in the world, is highly developed. It is characterized by high levels of exports, low unemployment, and technological advancement. Japan is the second largest producer of automobiles in the world. The country’s growth has suffered in recent decades following the collapse of real estate and stock market bubbles in the 1980s and early 1990s. Despite high fiscal deficits and rock-bottom interest rates, the Japanese economy has shown little growth relative to other developed markets. As investment vehicles in a developed market economy, Japanese mutual funds and ETFs may be appropriate for conservative-minded investors. However, prospective investors should be aware that some funds do not hedge their currency risk, and the volatility of the Japanese Yen can have a significant impact on returns.
