The CC Japan Alpha fund offers investors a concentrated, high conviction exposure to the Japanese market within a UCITS IV structure. The fund seeks to invest in a concentrated portfolio of typically between 20 and 45 stocks.

The manager seeks to invest in a concentrated portfolio of companies, which are primarily listed or traded on recognised exchanges in Japan. These stocks typically fall into three key opportunity sets: Fundamental Opportunities, which in our view, are large cap companies with good growth prospects; Special Situations, which are catalyst driven opportunities at a stock level; and thirdly, Undiscovered Gems, opportunities in the small and mid cap sector, taking advantage of the lack of coverage within the space.

The process is designed with a longer term outlook in mind, rather than trying to chase the shorter term sector rotation, believing that over the long term the best companies will outperform.
