On 14 October 2017, the Citywire Spain award recognised asset managers that have been managing investment strategies in an outstanding manner for a period of 3 to 7 years. The OYSTER Japan Opportunities fund is one of a number of high-conviction and alpha-focused strategies managed by SYZ Asset Management. Launched in March 2005, the fund was singled out for its strong track record. Over the last three years, the fund has returned +14.6% annualised. Since Joël Le Saux’s (lead Portfolio Manager) tenure starting on the 1st of February 2013, the fund has returned +18.2% annualised compared to 16.4% for the Topix Net TR JPY Index. The fund’s robust stock selection process and flexible investment style that allocates dynamically among both high quality, domestically-driven stocks as well as global macro-sensitive stocks has allowed it to be a consistent 1st decile member of its Lipper ranking peer group  along with being rated 5 stars by Morningstar*. Moreover, last May, Joël Le Saux was rated “AAA” by Citywire.
