Fidelity Japan Index

A fund that tracks the performance of large and medium sized Japanese companies.

Overview

The fund aims to track the performance of the MSCI Japan index, which follows the performance of mid and large cap Japanese stocks. The tracker replicates performance by using full physical replication, where it will try to match all the stocks in the benchmark at their weighting.

We like this fund as it gives us exposure to a diverse range of Japanese companies, has tracked its benchmark closely since inception and is also one of the cheaper index tracker funds available.
