London-based Henderson Global Investors has launched a new Japan-Asia Focus fund, investing in Japanese and other Asian companies. "We are excited about launching this fund right now, because we believe that the Japanese economy may be poised for long-term expansion," said Sean Dranfield, Henderson director of North American retail distribution.
The Henderson Japan-Asia Focus Fund will use a bottom-up approach. The fund, which opened on Jan. 31, is the sixth Henderson global fund, joining the International Opportunities Fund, European Focus Fund, Global Technology Fund, U.S. Core Growth Fund and the Income Advantage Fund. Together, Henderson Global Investors manages more than $119.3 billion.
