French asset manager Ofi Invest Asset Management has announced that its Ofi Invest ISR Actions Japan fund will be distributed in five new European countries. The fund, which was launched in December 2005, is now available to attract new investors in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Austria, and Germany.

The geographic expansion of the distribution of its Japanese equity fund confirms Ofi Invest Asset Management's intention to provide its investors with greater added value by adding new markets in which its flagship European investment strategies are registered for sale. This expansion is an essential part of its objective to grow sales internationally.

Ofi Invest AM has extensive capabilities and recognized expertise over time in its Japanese equity investment strategy, which is run by a team of two managers - Jean-François Chambon and Julien Rolland - specialized in this asset class. This strategy has more than EUR 692 million in assets under management as of 18 September 2023.

Ofi Invest ISR Actions Japan invests in shares of Japanese companies in order to help investors benefit from the country's economic and social potential and prevailing growth trends. The fund is recommended for an investment time horizon of five years while assuming the risk of capital loss that is incurred in any equity investment.

This strategy is based on the strong conviction of the fund managers, who select companies with sound fundamentals that therefore have strong upside potential. In addition. The fund enjoys the official French SRI label as a sustainable investment product, as it seeks to enhance long-term value and reconcile equity investment through a socially responsible commitment.

"So far this year, the Japanese economy has been surprisingly robust. In the first half of 2023, GDP grew by an annualised 2.4% in real terms, which is striking for a country whose structural growth is less than 1%. The drivers of Japan's economic growth are largely local, based on the momentum of domestic consumption and business investment, which revived from its slumber after overcoming the difficulties following the Covid pandemic phase. In the medium term, Japan seems best placed to drive economic development in Southeast Asia, as well as a possible economic recovery in China, which has great potential in robotics, among other industries".
