Share prices in Japan continued to fall sharply yesterday, closing at a four-month low. This latest fall follows 17% declines earlier in the year. But this has provided attractive opportunities to buy good companies as they are trading at a relative discount compared to other developed market equities.

“Japan remains the home to leading global companies despite its economic woes,” says Alex Lee, senior portfolio manager of Japan equities at Canada Life Investments.

“Now that many of these companies can finally be found at attractive valuations, the market should once again become appealing to long term investors.”
