  • Ed Merner on Japan and Korea on Hedge Fund Radio 0 comments
    Dec 8, 2009 9:11 PM | about stocks: JOF, AAXJ, EWJ, KF

    My guest on Hedge Fund Radio this week is Ed Merner, CEO of the Atlantis Japan Growth Fund (LSE-AJG), who has long been rated the number one stock picker in the Land of the Rising Sun. Ed’s fund, which trades on the London Stock Exchange, is up a decent 54% from the March bottom. When the ink was barely dry on the US Japan peace treaty in 1950, Ed’s father uprooted his family from rural Truckee, California, and moved them to Tokyo Japan. That gave him a front row seat to the economic miracle that followed in the fifties and sixties. Ed started managing money in Japan just a few years before me, in 1970. He toiled away as a portfolio manager at Schroeder’s & Co. in Tokyo for 25 years and then launched his own firm in 1995. Ed, who is a fascinating individual and a genuine nice guy, will discuss the long term opportunities for investing in Japan and Korea. To hear Ed expound on Japan and Korea at length, please go to my website by clicking here at .
