About Aberdeen Japan Investment Trust

Japan specialists identifying exceptional companies.

Aberdeen Japan Investment Trust is an investment trust aiming to achieve long-term capital growth principally through investment in listed Japanese companies which are believed by the Manager to have above average prospects for growth.

Japan is home to world-class companies with strong franchises that can play an essential role in any diversified portfolio seeking to deliver long-term growth.

  • Quality companies: we seek to identify world-class Japanese organisations with industry-leading positions that are well positioned to take advantage of the consumption of Asia's rising middle classes.
  • Active engagement: we believe there's no substitute for getting to know your investments first hand, engaging with all companies before we invest in their shares and while we hold them. In our view, good governance, company performance and sound capital management are closely linked.
  • On the ground: with investment specialists based in Japan we have the know-how to understand this diverse and complex market and identify those exceptional companies that are shaping their industries.
