About Fukuo Shigeta
Tokyo-based Fukuo Shigeta says he is a fan of legendary US value investor Benjamin Graham, which can be classified as an understatement considering he translated and published Graham's "Intelligent Investors" into Japanese in 1967. To emphasise his affinity with Graham, Shigeta adopts many of investment traits. He is also a value investor and a long-term investor who does not look to make profits from short-term trading and adopts a top-down investment approach to pick his best companies from the most promising sectors. Shigeta achieves this by thorough analysis of a company's business to determine whether it has the potential for strong development and he also scrutinises financial reports to establish how much a business is worth according to his estimation. He manages the Nippon Portfolio, which is established under Austrian Law. Born in April 1932 in Aomori, Japan, Septagenarian Shigeta has amassed a wealth of experience and has spent over 30 years with Nippon. He graduated in Business Psychology from the Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo. In 1968 Shigeta joined UBS, Tokyo and the following year founded Union Nippon Management & Research Inc. jointly with UBS, and acted as executive vice president for the new entity.
