Pension funds, insurers, institutions, consultants, fund managers and academics gathered at AsianInvestor's second annual Japan Institutional Investment Forum at the Palace Hotel in Tokyo on June 6.

Attendees criticised the lack of detail in prime minister Shinzo Abe's speech for failing to outline concrete details of the third arrow of his economic reform agenda, but nevertheless argued that this time is likely different from previous false dawns. They see the recent stock market correction more as a temporary reduction of speed.

With global interest rates remaining at rock bottom levels, Eaton Vance’s Bradford Godfrey advised investors to cut their core debt holdings.

Meanwhile, the conference also heard of a recent resurgence in Japan’s private equity market, with sources noting a marked change in atmosphere and a renewed drive to improve corporate governance in the country.
