About Hideo Shiozumi

Japanese specialist and tennis fan Hideo Shiozumi aims to fill his portfolios with companies which offer high growth over the medium term. He also likes to have a decent selection of small-caps in his funds and prefers these to be in the retail and distribution sectors. His only UK fund is the Legg Mason Japan Equity fund which has a concentrated portfolio of 30-40 holdings. Performance of the fund can be very volatile in the short term but in the medium to long term the results have been very impressive and justified this bumpy ride. Shiozumi aims to maximise performance during good stockmarket periods and minimise his losses in bear phases. Born in Japan on 23 December 1943, Shiozumi chose to study in the US and gained a BA in Economics from Guilford College, Greensboro. He is a veteran of the fund industry and draws on over 33 years’ experience. His career started out when he joined Robert Fleming as an investment analyst in 1970. He spent 12 years with the group, rising to portfolio manager, before his ambition led him to set up his own company Shiozumi & Co (now Shiozumi Asset Management) where he is the president.
