In their words (as of )

The Company's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark in March, due to stock selection. Semiconductor production equipment manufacturer Tokyo Electron was the top performer, while biotechnology company Sosei was the top detractor.

The global demand pickup is a tailwind for the Japanese equity market due to the relatively high weight of cyclical manufacturers in the index. Meanwhile, the domestic political situation in Japan is stable as the current government has no substantial opposition. The interest rate environment has improved for Japanese banks. Valuations remain competitive in a global context. Corporate governance continues to be a major focus in Japan. 2016 saw record share buybacks and 25% of all companies bought back shares - this increasingly looks like a structural change.

Disclaimer

3 Gearing represents the excess amount above shareholders' funds of total investments (excluding liquidity fund holdings) expressed as a percentage of the shareholders' funds. If the amount calculated is negative, this is known as a "net cash" position.
4 Net asset value assumes that shares held in treasury (if any) have been re issued at the previous nights closing price. 4 Due to the currently low net asset value and high gearing of the share class, the NAV performance numbers are extremely volatile and therefore none are disclosed.
7 Non-Benchmark holdings (where held) are classified in the appropriate sector/region. Cash is net current assets and holdings used as cash substitutes if applicable.
