Nomura Funds Ireland – Asia Ex Japan High Conviction Fund

We believe the Asian market is not fully efficient and that actively researched investment opportunities can add value in both absolute and relative terms.

The Asian High Conviction fund aims to deliver above average market returns in the mid-to-long-term by capturing long-term growth of the Asia ex-Japan region.

Investment Style

Our investment objective is to construct a concentrated portfolio of 25-35 stocks that allows us to express our ‘best ideas’, whilst still permitting prudent protection/diversification against unexpected downside risk. Our concentrated and unconstrained approach is:

  • Bottom-up, within a disciplined and repeatable framework, and supported by extremely large research resources.
  • Has no absolute sector limits.
  • Has a mid-to-long-term investment time horizon.

Our Investment Approach

The process is underpinned by a wide stock universe and experienced and in the region based investment professionals conducting extensive fundamental analysis. This strategy selects a list of high conviction stocks from the regional model portfolio put forward by our Country/Sector specialists.
