Thin analyst coverage in Asia often overlooks or underestimates entrepreneurial small caps that are taking advantage of economic and demographic shifts in China and Japan.
Institutional investors frequently rely on broad large-cap indices for international exposure—but large caps are hardly the most intriguing story in Asia. There is opportunity for attractive risk-adjusted returns offered by small-cap stocks in China and—surprisingly to some investors—in Japan.
Driving this potential are three factors: nimble companies with an entrepreneurial spirit; dynamic market scenarios such as economic and demographic shifts in sectors such as health care, services and technology; and thin analyst coverage.
To take advantage of the alpha potential in Asia’s small-cap equities, institutions need a highly functional framework for evaluating the long-term drivers of growth and a clear risk-return profile for the asset class.
