Instinct’s Japan Opportunity Fund gains solid traction


The year got off to a good start for Sydney-based Instinct Capital, as its Japan Opportunity Fund added 2.28% in January to its 34% gain for last year.

The fund is creating a significant buzz and receiving strong investor interest recently, and is set to close when it reaches $200 million – a manageable size that should help ensure it delivers a 15% to 20% annualised return. The fund uses multiple strategies, including fundamental catalysts and tactical trading, to make incremental gains from very short-term trades.

Typically, the fund has 20 to 25 positions at any given time,
