Shiozumi Asset Management Co., Ltd. was registered and licensed in Japan in
2001 to provide highly specialized expertise in Japanese investment portfolio
management. Its predecessor company Shiozumi Investment Limited was established
in Hong Kong in 1990. Its purpose was and is to exploit the investment potential
of a new, emerging Japanese consumer with a growth-oriented strategy.
Shiozumi Asset Management Co., Ltd. has only professional investors as clients.
It opened its doors with portfolio management for pension
fund managers in America. Shortly thereafter, in December 1990, it established the
Shiozumi Japan Opportunities Fund, a unit trust governed by the laws of Bermuda.
The Fund is currently marketed in Western Europe. Shiozumi Asset Management soon
managed pension funds in the U.K., and in 1996, became the first and the only
independent Japanese fund manager for a U.K. unit trust.
Today, we are one of the few independent portfolio investment managers in
Japan with a discretionary license. We look to broaden our client base to Japan,
where specialised equity portfolio management is at an early stage of development.
