Hedge Fund Investments Japan Congress brings together the "who's who" of hedge fund investment in Japan and beyond. With key decision-makers and top influencers all gathered at one place, it is an unparalleled platform for business introductions and top-quality discussions.

Takeshi Ito, Senior Portfolio Manager, for the AISIN Employees' Pension Fund, explains that extremely low interest rates, volatile equity markets, and financial crises that have occurred every few years, making the investing environment stressfully difficult.

“Pension funds are striving to make a profit on their investments under these stringent circumstances. Our objectives toward hedge fund investments has become increasingly multi-faceted: securing absolute yearly returns, as alternatives to equity and bond investments (based on pursuit of the same returns with lower risk than equity markets, or similar risk-return but from products uncorrelated to equities), and as tail hedges are some examples of hedge fund objectives. The variety of hedge fund strategies may meet specific cross-sections of investors’ needs, but may simultaneously be obscuring what we pension funds desire from hedge fund investments,” he said.

David Bridge, an Associate at Pacific Alternative Asset Management Company, believe that from a relative value perspective Japan does present opportunities for alpha generation.

“We feel that Japan does present opportunities for alpha generation, particularly from a relative value perspective given the liquidity, shorting availability and the presence of stock and sector level dispersion in the Japanese market. The market structure, including economic differences in export-oriented versus domestic sectors, cross-company differences in the level of foreign versus domestic investor participation, and limited sell side coverage of the mid-cap space, also presents opportunities for Japan-focused managers to exploit market inefficiencies. In our opinion, higher quality Japanese funds tend to reflect this opportunity set, with a somewhat greater focus on relative value trading than often seen elsewhere, and a focus on the unique structural characteristics of the Japanese market,” he said.
