Strategic’s Q1-2024 Quarterly Investment Brief

Jun 19, 2024 | News

An excerpt from our First Quarter Investment Brief -  The Japanese economy and financial markets experienced three major milestones in the first quarter. After more than three decades, the Japanese equity market finally recouped the peak level it attained in 1989, when a massive equity and real estate bubble burst. Second, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) signaled victory in its decades-long fight against deflation with an increase in its policy rate and other steps to tighten liquidity conditions. Finally, the yen reached a 34-year low against the U.S. dollar, notwithstanding the BoJ’s policy shift. In this Special Topic, we discuss these milestones and assess the prospects for Japanese equities.
