    Any time you get great valuations, “it’s always messy”. But the indiscriminate sell-off in growth small caps presents the best buying opportunity since 2008. “Historically, people think of small cap growth as the wrong place to be in a rising interest rate environment – and it is, when people first start to think about a…

    Hidden champions and ‘Omotenashi’: Japanese equities beckon

    Australian investors are finally warming to Japanese equities after years of avoiding them for “good macro reasons.” Despite its status as a sophisticated developed market, Japan has been on the out with foreign investors for decades.

    A punishing, indiscriminate sell-off has left opportunities lying on the floor. After a 13-year “anti-value phase”, the style is coming back into style.
