Japan has what it takes to be an economic powerhouse and global leader. In 2019 and 2020, the domestic demand upcycle is poised to surprise positively despite the consumer tax hike, and corporate investments in future growth will accelerate. More importantly, the case for Japan as a best-in-class model for free-market capitalism is getting stronger. Japan delivers sustainable and balanced performance for all stakeholders, with rising productivity, growing global competitiveness, and cutting-edge innovation that goes hand in hand with social stability and broad-based prosperity. But is it too good to be true?
At this event you will learn:
Jesper Koll has been investing in Japan since becoming a resident in 1986. In July 2015, he was appointed Chief Executive Officer of WisdomTree Japan and now serves as senior adviser. Over the past two decades, Koll has been consistently ranked as one of the top Japan strategists/economists, having worked as chief strategist and head of research for major US investment banks J.P. Morgan and Merrill Lynch. His analysis and insights have earned him a position on several Japanese government advisory committees, including Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike’s Tokyo Financial Center council. Koll is one of the few non-Japanese members of the Keizai Doyukai, the Japan Association of Corporate Executives, has written three books in Japanese, and is a regular commentator in global and local media, including NHK, CNN, and Nikkei.
