Big in Japan

04 March 2024 • 6 mins listen

Japan’s stock market is off to a roaring start this year, up almost 20% ytd, with the benchmark Nikkei 225 index just shy of the 40,000 level last week.

Japan has been breaching new 34-year highs over the past 12 months, thanks to a combination of positive macro and micro factors.

For investors who are “Big in Japan”, the question would be, what’s next for this buoyant market when Spring comes?
