With interest rates near zero, along with volatility in the equity and currency markets, Japanese investors are underinvested. Households are holding record levels of cash, unsure of where the economy will head. There is a small but growing segment of the alternative investment market that could see strong interest from investors in Japan.
Non-traditional assets including whisky, coins, wine, stamps, cars, guitars, are attracting private equity investment. What are the trends? What are the risks? Will Japanese investors jump onboard?
Come to learn about these asset classes with a particular focus on whisky.
Attendees will be able to taste some boutique single malt whiskies.
