Japan is back. The dark days of the 1990s and early 2000s are history: Japan's corporate giants, bolstered by a massive economic restructuring, are suddenly outperforming all major markets. The world's smartest financiers are rediscovering Japan, and uncovering remarkable investment opportunities there. In The Japanese Money Tree, Andrew Shipley takes you inside the new Japanese economy, and presents innovative strategies for finding value in Japanese markets. Shipley reveals the true impact of the Koziumi policy reforms, illuminates Japan's surprising demographic realities, and outlines the implications of Japan's growing role as a regional leader. You'll discover how to cherry-pick Japanese investments with undervalued intangible assets, leverage emerging private equity and hedge funds, even get in on the new Japanese real estate boom. Whether you're a professional investor, money manager, or sophisticated individual investor, The Japanese Money Tree opens new investment opportunities you simply can't afford to miss.
