Nomura reaches US$1bn AUM in Japan UCITS fund

Nomura Asset Management U.K. Ltd. today announced that it has seen strong inflows into its Japan Strategic Value Fund, enabling it to surpass $1 billion of AUM and become one of the biggest funds in the sector.

The election of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and nomination of new Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda have drawn investor focus back to Japan. Coupled with a weakening Yen, conditions are more favourable for Japanese equities than they have been for some time.

The fund, managed entirely through a bottom-up approach, has seen inflows from a variety of European and Asian investors. The fund has outperformed the TOPIX by 1.18% annualised since its inception in August 2009, whilst the underlying strategy, managed by the same team has outperformed TOPIX by 6.13% on an annualised basis since its inception in 2000.*

As one of the leading Asian-based managers, Nomura enjoys a good reputation for its capabilities in this area.

Notes:
1) The Nomura Funds Ireland plc Japan Strategic Value Fund was launched on 26th August 2009 (ISIN: IE00B3VTL690, Bloomberg: NOMIRL6 ID)
2) The fund management team is based in Tokyo and manages $3.1bn in total
3) The inception date of the strategy was 25th July 2000
4) The fund offers a variety of share classes (Yen, GBP and US$), including hedged share classes
5) Nomura Asset Management manages some $280bn of AUM overall (as at 31 December 2012)
