Framlington is offering a 1 per cent discount on the initial charge for its Japan Fund until April 30, reducing the initial charge to 4 per cent.
The minimum investment for PEP transfers and Isas is £1,000 and £500 for unit trust investments. Initial commission is 3 per cent, with 0.5 per cent renewal commission for Pep and Isa lump sum investments.
Framlington Japan Fund manager John Li says: “For the first time in 10 years we are starting to see something interesting happening in Japan. By guiding interest rates back to zero, the Bank of Japan has now provided the necessary conditions for banks to write off bad debts and start the economy moving.”
