BGFD Overview

The Baillie Gifford Japan Trust PLC is an investment company. The Company's investment objective is to achieve long-term capital growth principally through investment in medium to smaller-sized Japanese companies, which have above-average prospects for growth, although it invests in larger companies when considered appropriate. Its holdings are generally listed in Japan although the portfolio can also include companies listed elsewhere whose business is predominantly in Japan as well as unlisted companies. From time to time, fixed interest holdings, or non-equity investments, may be held. The portfolio is constructed through the identification of individual companies which offer long-term growth potential, over a three to five-year horizon.
