Comgest bulks up outperforming Japan duo’s team

Comgest bulks up outperforming Japan duo’s team

Comgest has appointed Makoto Egami as a fund manager across its Japan-focused equity funds, Citywire Global has learned.

Egami will work on both the Dublin-domiciled Comgest Growth Japan, which is currently co-managed by Citywire + rated Richard Kaye and Citywire A-rated Chantana Ward.

This is as well as working on the France-domiciled version of the fund, which is also managed by Kaye and Ward.

Egami joined Comgest as an analyst focused on Comgest in its Japan office in 2013. He has 15 years of  experience in the investment world. Previously in his career, Egami had worked as a senior industry analyst at Google and also as a research analyst at Macquarie Group.

This appointment marks the most recent development within the Asian and Japanese equity team since Chakara Sisowath stepped down after 14 years with the French group in April.

Sisowath had previously been named as a manager on Comgest Growth Japan fund between 2000 and 2005, and served as a portfolio manager across several equity strategies.

The Comgest Growth Japan fund has returned 119.6% in Japanese yen terms over the three years to the end of September 2015. This compares to a rise of 102.7% by its Citywire-assigned benchmark, the Topix TR, over the same period.
