Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing better than the peer group composite. Over a long track record, the manager has outperformed the peer group more often than not. Good stock picking has had a material positive impact on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Hideo Shiozumi has over 45 years experience in Japanese equities. Having been educated in the U.S. and working during his formative years at Robert Fleming in London, he brings a Western perspective to equities investment not normally associated with Japanese investment managers. He was the first Japanese fund manager for Robert Fleming & Co., Ltd. and also, in the late 1970s, the first Japanese national in the City of London to be named as a director. In managing the Fleming Japan Fund in the 1970s through the early 1980s to record performance, he learned not to be a trader as well as the virtues of “patience”. These remain guiding principles of his portfolio management style. This is reflected in the low turnover and focus on long term stocks that are hallmarks of each portfolio he constructs. In 1983, Hideo Shiozumi founded his own company to manage the Japanese investment of George Soros’s Quantum Fund. He was recruited in 1987 to set up a joint venture between National Capital Management, an affiliate of the Matsushita group and Foreign & Colonial, the UK investment management firm. As president, he developed diversified portfolios for Japanese institutions that were turning their attention to the investment opportunities afforded in markets beyond Japan. Hideo Shiozumi founded Shiozumi Investment Limited in Hong Kong in 1990 to single-mindedly exploit the unfolding and attractive opportunity in investing in newly emerging, Japanese growth companies. He has a fervent belief in the role of a specialist as in-depth market knowledge has become increasingly important in performance achievement. His intent is that his company never becomes “just another generalist” in the Tokyo market. In 2000, Hideo Shiozumi established Shiozumi Asset Management CO., Ltd. and in October 2001, transferred all business to Japan from its former company, Shiozumi Investment Limited in Hong Kong.

Performance vs peer group composite: Hideo Shiozumi
How a manager matches up against their peers gives you some idea of how talented they are. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
