HSBC Japan Index C Acc

Willis Owen Research Commentary

This Focus 50 fund has an excellent record in a category where passive funds have performed well. It provides broad and representative market-cap weighted exposure to Japanese equities. With around 500 constituents, including a number of mid-caps and small-caps, the HSBC Japan Index fund is a broader proposition. The fund may demonstrate higher than normal tracking error due to use of fair valuation to price the fund when Japanese markets are closed. However, the low fees, coupled with the under-performance of active managers in this area, has seen the fund beat its surviving category peers over 3, 5, and 10 years on a risk-adjusted basis.
