Japan has been hotly tipped as the market to deliver top returns in 2015. Forecasters believe UK shares face the uncertainty of at least one – if not two – General Elections, European companies are plagued by economic  doubts and the US is still far too overvalued to deliver strong returns.

Whether or not you believe the forecasts regarding the rest of the world stock markets, Japan does have some compelling fundamentals. Having been re-elected in December, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has bought himself the time to ensure his economic overhaul stays the course.

“Abe went for a quick snap election and that probably gives him a mandate to take more action with regard to the third arrow, the structural reforms, which means more good news for the Japanese market,” said Morningstar’s head of fund research Jeremy Beckwith.
