Neptune Global Income: Is Japan the best dividend market in the world?

By George Boyd-Bowman, Fund Manager at Neptune

The Neptune Global Income Fund seeks exposure to the very best – and often overlooked – income opportunities from across the world. Unconstrained by benchmarks, the fund currently has 24 per cent invested in Japan, differentiating the high conviction portfolio from many of its peers.

Watch Neptune Fund Manager George Boyd-Bowman discuss Japan’s renewed focus on shareholder returns and how he is exploiting this opportunity in the actively managed Neptune Global Income Fund.

In the video George discusses:

  • Abe’s explicit focus on shareholder returns and why this is leading to opportunities for global income investors
  • Why his 24 per cent Japan weighting is focused on both multinationals and domestically-orientated stocks
  • Valuations and a rising rate environment, which have led to a focus on growth-orientated companies with an income bias rather than bond proxy stocks
