Japan’s Full Faith Outperforms In Debut

Oct 29 2014 | 9:49am ET

A new Japanese hedge fund is off to a fast start.

Full Faith Investment returned 2.1% last month, Bloomberg News reports. The average Japan-focused hedge fund rose just 1.3% in September, according to Eurekahedge.

Full Faith was founded by Sadao Sakamoto, formerly of Nomura Holdings, Barclays and JPMorgan Chase, and Yoshiki Hayashi, a veteran of Citigroup and Nikko Cordial Securities. It has run its strategy for a foreign institutional investor since August, and returned 13.3% from October 2013 through last month, when Japanese regulators gave the firm the green-light to manage money directly.

The institutional investor has now transferred ¥3 billion (US$28 million) to Full Faith managed account.
