1. Overview

    The Baillie Gifford Japan Trust aims to pursue long-term capital growth principally through investment in medium to smaller sized Japanese companies, which are believed to have above average prospects for growth.

    The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.
