The Japan fund GAM's A-rated Hepworth backs to exploit 'Abenomics'

Charles Hepworth, the Citywire A-rated investment director at GAM, tells Wealth Manager why he is sticking with Japan rather than taking profits yet.

Hepworth also shares the name of the little-known AA-rated manager through whom he is gaining exposure to Japan, and reveals what would lead him to sour on the market.

Over the past year, Hepworth has returned 9.3% compared with an average of 7.7% from his Citywire Mixed Assets Aggressive sector.
