Hugh Sloane: still a bull on Japan

If you have been wondering, as many investors have, whether to stick with a significant exposure to the Japanese equity market following its recent sharp sell-off, you may care to hear how one of the UK’s most successful hedge fund managers views the potential now. Hugh Sloane, co-founder of Sloane Robinson, is not a voice that is often heard in public but he makes a strong and reasoned case for thinking that Japan still offers the most attractive risk-return characteristics of all the leading developed equity markets around the world. To hear how he justifies this view, go to the website of my new venture Money Makers and download the 30-minute podcast. (Disclosure: I retain an above average weighting in the Japanese equity market. but listen to him, not me, if you are not yet convinced to do the same).
