What does the industry think?

Earlier this month the Bank of Japan refrained from introducing an aggressive easing package, delivering a negative surprise to markets.






“Being uneventful is what Japan is all about, but every time nothing happens I have to issue an intelligent-sounding research note.”

Robert Ruderschmidt, portfolio manager, Overflowing Alpha Asset Management








“Still waiting on the research note to come in so I can call it my own commentary.”

Louie Zheng, head of discretionary mandates, Global Behemoth Private Bank






“We cannot comment due to compliance reasons.”

Buffy Leung, corporate communications, Absolute Zero Risk Investment Management (AZRIM)








“We've got some Asia ex-Japan products that are more interesting to talk about right now.”

Graham O’Brien, head of global distribution, Unhinged Asset Management





“Our Japan-focused funds are actually invested in US companies that have Japanese CEOs, so we remain well-positioned to meet the challenges of the Japan market.”

Shelley Sim, head of marketing in APAC, SmoothTalk Fund Management Group
