EspeciallyPayoffBanned, lowinterest rate(Zero interest rate policyIn the current situation where interest income from deposits by () is hardly expected, it is attracting attention as a means for asset management.

The degree of risk taken and the degree of return obtained vary depending on the investment target of the investment trust. Stocks, for example, are said to be more risky and more rewarding than bonds. In addition, it is said that those targeting foreign countries are more subject to risks and returns than those targeting domestic investment are also affected by the exchange rate.[Annotation 2].

Additional investment trusts that can be purchased and canceled at any time respond to changes in the valuation of the assets held byBase price[Annotation 3]Is calculated. Operating profits can be received at the time of cancellation/sale if there is a gain on the increase in the base price, in addition to the distribution paid out at regular intervals.

If the management of trust assets raises a large amount of profits and raises the standard price, the unit price for purchasing in units of units increases and it becomes difficult to purchase.Therefore, the beneficiary right may be subdivided in order to lower the standard price.[Annotation 4].. 1999-2000IT bubbleBecame popular around that time.

For exampleDeposit deposit boxHowever, it was neutral from a relatively early stage.

When the beneficiary purchases the fund, the selling financial institution gets a purchase fee (front load)[Annotation 6]..While the purchaser holds the fund, the financial institution that sold the investment trust can indirectly receive a portion of the trust fee from the trustee.When the beneficiary cancels the fund, some trust property reservations are collected from the canceled portion.

A certain rate (usually about 0.2 to 3% per year) of trust fees is deducted daily from the fund's net assets.Besides securities companiesbankIt is said that the reason why all companies are focusing on selling investment trusts is that the purchase fee and the indirect acquisition of trust fees are very high.[3].JapanMost of the investment trusts in Japan are around 3% of the purchase price,The United States of AmericaMutual funds do not collect any sales commissionsNo road fundIs common.

Investment trust costs

Since an investment trust is a mechanism that outsources management, a predetermined fee (cost) is incurred at the time of purchase, during the management period, and at the time of cancellation / purchase request.Until the spread of no-load, the toll system was debated for decades over fairness with customers.[9].. The main fees are as follows.

Sales commission
The one collected by a sales company when an investor purchases an investment trust. Even for the same investment trust, the fee amount may differ depending on the purchase amount and the financial institutions that handle it. The front-loading system was once rampant due to exploitation. Also, some sales companies do not collect this, and such investment trustsNo road fundIt is called. In the case of automatic reinvestment of distributions that are not "sale", in most cases they can be purchased without commission.In addition, even for investment trusts that require sales commissions, some sales companies offer substantial discounts or free of charge by cashing back the commissions at a later date (backload and exit load).Even at the same sales company, the commission rate may differ between window purchases and Internet purchases.
Trust fee
Collected by the investment trust management company and sales company during the investment trust management period.The annual collection rate (about 0.1% to 2%) is set in advance and is collected by deducting it from the total net assets of the trust property every day.Unlike sales commissions, there is no difference between the amount owned or the sales company.Basically, those who invest in stocks rather than bonds, those who invest overseas (especially in emerging countries) rather than Japan, and those who actively change investment destinations more frequently than passive / index types who hold investment targets for a long period of time However, trust fees tend to be higher.Since the base price is displayed as the value after deducting the trust fee, the beneficiary is less aware of it.In the case of the so-called fund of funds format, if the trust fee is also collected in the mother fund, the trust fee may not be clearly determined as "about OO%" in the baby fund.
Trust property reservation amount
Expenses collected when selling or canceling investment trusts. There are many things in which the amount of retained trust assets does not apply. The amount of the trust property reservation is returned to the beneficiary who holds the remaining investment trust in the trust property, and is not a commission paid to the sales company or the management company. This is explained as a nuisance fee for other beneficiaries, because the expenses for selling the underlying assets such as stocks and receivables that are part of the trust property due to the cancellation will be paid from the trust property.[10].
Cancellation fee
Most mutual funds do not collect fees for cancellation. Fees may be charged for a small portion of investment trusts (such as bond investment trusts).
Although it is not the cost of the investment trust itself, if the base price at the time of cancellation exceeds the individual principal and profits are generated, income tax will be levied on the profits.In most cases, the tax will be calculated by the seller and deducted from the amount received at the time of cancellation.If you do not withhold tax at the time of transaction, you will have to calculate and pay the income tax amount by filing a tax return.


The distribution of an investment trust is a part of the trust property that is returned to the beneficiary at the time of settlement of the investment trust.Since it is a return of trust property, it is different in nature from interest on time deposits and dividends on stocks, and when distributions are made, the base price drops by that amount.The distribution of the portion where the base price exceeds the individual principalOrdinary distributionIf it is treated as taxable and the base price is less than the individual principal,Special distribution(Principal refund, part equivalent to partial refund of principal) will be treated as tax exempt.Even if automatic reinvestment is selected, ordinary distributions will be taxed and the taxed amount will be reinvested.

Generally, many Japanese individual investors are particular about distribution (principal guarantee), and the side that sells the investment trust emphasizes the amount of distribution, schedule and frequency, but especially “special distribution (principal repayment)” '' is nothing but the ``octopus dividend'' paid back from the investment assets that you contributed, and the investment assets are also the balance after the sales commission and trust fee when purchasing the investment trust were deducted, and already reduced from the contribution amount. I tend not to pay attention to that. Even if such distribution is reinvested, ordinary distribution will be taxed at the time of distribution.TMJIt is like re-depositing the cash withdrawn as it is, and the collection of overtime withdrawal fees is equivalent to taxing ordinary distributions, and the compound interest effect is reduced by that amount, so there is practically no loss. Will be done. Generally, if the purpose is not to secure stable living expenses through regular distribution, but to increase the amount of assets over the long term, rather pay attention to the rise in the standard price without distribution. It is said that the increase in distribution and standard price should be comprehensively evaluated according to the purpose.[11][12].

Development on both sides of the line

In France, four ancestors of investment trusts were created between 1925 and 1929. These fiveWorld DepressionSo all is gone. From that point forward, investment trusts became established in the United States as international capital. HoweverEuro currencyCreated a large international market in the 1960s. As a background, it is meaningful to know post-war Germany and France together with the United States.

It was in 1949 when the international community turned to the opposite course all at once. Germany'sCommerz BankEstablished a management company that manages investment trusts through a joint investment with the Bavarian Joint Bank (Allgemeine Deutsche Investment Gesellschaft mbH). In France, a state-owned asset management company was born (Société Nationale d'Investissement, cf. Maghrib). The source was French company shares owned by Germany and others.[15]

By the law of June 1952, 6, the tax disadvantage against the former French state management company disappeared, and private investment trust companies also grew from the same year (Société d'investissement à capital fixe, SICAF). 1956Deutsche BankEstablished a management company as a joint venture with 13 other syndicates (Deutsche Gesellshaft für Wertpapiersparen mbH). The following year, in 1957, the German government institutionalized an open-ended contract investment trust (investment company law). France reorganized SICAF into SICAV by the law of December 1957, 12 and at the same time established FCP (Fond commun de placement). Under the law, rules were established on September 1963, 9, and the following year, in 20, SICAV1964 companies made their business a star (Offshore financial centerComposition). In 1968 Germany, some insurance companies and pension fundsInstitutional investorA private placement investment trust was established to issue shares (special fund). The de facto FOF was the first in Germany. In 1979, the French FCP finally opened. France introduced the MMF without price maintenance regulation in the 1980s. By the law of December 1988, 12, SICAF and FCP were united and an EC passport was granted (Organisme de placement collectif en valeurs mobilières, OPCM). Shortly after reunification, in 1990 Germany amended the Investment Company Act. And in 1994 MMF was lifted. In 1998, we introduced FOF and index funds to expand the investment target of derivatives.[15]

The 1988 Special Fund Manager isDresdner BankThe largest was DBI, which was funded by Deutsche Bank, and DEGEF, which was funded by Deutsche Bank. Commerzbank itself was third with $160 billion. Special fund investment regulations are loose. Bank deposits up to 73% of total assets. Up to 5% of shares/bonds of the same issue. There are no restrictions on foreign securities except for pensions. 5 SICAV operators in share rankingCredit AgricoleIs the top (13.9%),Society GeneralIs second (9.6%),Ques Des PagnesIs third (9.5%),BNP and ParibasWere fourth (8.7%) and eighth (5.1%), respectively.

History of investment trusts in Japan

Pacific War and disbandment of chaebol

1937 year 7 month,Fujimoto Building BrokerFormed the Fujimoto Securities Association. Fujimoto Securities bought a caretaker because it was difficult for its members to operate, but it was discontinued due to opposition from the industry and government authorities as a trust-like act. On June 1940, 6, the Ministry of Finance issued a generous order. "In the future, it is all right to be involved in investment trusts in the form of unit trusts within the scope of cooperation with trust companies, recruitment of trustors, and securities investment affairs of trust companies,"Nomura SecuritiesAsked for approval by the Ministry of Finance on November 1941, 11. Nomura Investment TrustPacific WarGained an unrealized gain from the rise in stock prices due to the outcome of the battle. September 1942, Fujimoto,Yamaichi, Koike,Kawashimaya,JointOf the Japanese investment trusts (founded in 5)Tokyo Trust Bank)Specified money trustAs a trustee of, the investment trust business was started all at once. It was successfully recruited every month until 1943. From the setting in April 1944, the income was tax-free up to the principal of 4 yen per unit, which was the subject of savings saved by the National Savings Union, so the recruitment amount increased dramatically. Since these closed funds also invested in securities of foreign companies such as the munitions industry, they were hit hard with the defeat.Reverse courseOnce the stock market recovered,Korean WarAll the money was redeemed before the outbreak.[24]

Nomura's investment trusts accounted for 47% of the total investment trusts set up during the war, almost double that of Yamaichi, who came in second place. Of the securities included, government bonds have a par value of 2 yen and a market price of about 100 yen. Stocks have unknown market prices, and there are foreign companies and restricted companies that cannot be disposed without permission.Closed organization・Bonds issued by corporate restructuring companies,Loss compensationThe redemption was postponed due to a contract with[25].

Nomura immediately after enforcement,Nikko, Yamaichi,Yamato4 companies registered[27].. Osakaya Securities (currentlyIwai Cosmo Securities) And Oi Securities (currentlyShinko Securities) Registered in July and September[27].. Although they were looking for a unit type, they adopted a new bearer type, institutionalized purchase and partial cancellation, released the asset composition from the contract, and abolished the pre-war loss compensation special agreement.[27].Ikeda-Robertson talksAt that time, the deflation policy was taken and the stock price dropped sharply, and the operating results were sluggish until 1955.[27].. The additional type that has already been set has an indefinite trust period from January 1956.[27].

Securities recession and international investment trusts

In 1958, 7 securities companies were licensed for investment trust business, and the number of consignment companies operated by securities companies became 14[28].. The following year, in 1959, four major securities companies established a new consignment company and responded to the conflict of interest problem of concurrent management.[28].. In the 30s, stock investment trusts became popular against the backdrop of a booming economy, and a cycle was seen in which increasing funds demanded stocks and raised stock prices. In January 1961, with Nikko SecuritiesKeiichiro NiwayamaBond bond investment trust was released to the public with the idea of[28].. When the bond issuance conditions were lowered in April, the fund lowered the ratio of newly issued bonds from 4% to 80% in order to secure a yield.[28].. In July, the official discount rate was raised and the number of cancellations of bond investment trusts increased[28].. The incorporated bond was taken over by the securities company[28].. In 1963 he was the then Minister of FinanceKakuei TanakaAlso supported public and corporate bond investment trusts. The remaining principal amount of stock investment trusts in the same year was 1955 trillion yen, 20 times higher than in 1.17[28].. The people of the times leave a parable that the medaka in the pond became a whale. Branch of a securities company is listed to complain to be "Farewell bank, Hello by securities" in placard[29].. Eventually, a bond that lost liquidity triggeredSecurities recessionHappened[28].

In August 1967, the investment trust law was amended to recognize the “deemed investment trust” that is the basis of family funds. A family fund is a mechanism in which a child investment trust is sold to consumers and the parent investment trust is bought with the money. If the FOF was a top-down investment trust pyramid, the family fund was, on the contrary, a bottom-up one. In 8, when Euroclear was established, both the unit type and additional type investment trusts recovered their principal amounts.[30]

1969 February, with Nomura SecuritiesNM Rothschild & SonsMerrill LynchJointly funded the so-called Pacific Seaboard Fund. The net worth was $3200 million, with Japanese stocks and other Pacific Coast stocks accounting for $1800 million. March, called Tokyo ValorLuxembourgWas established as a Japanese equity investment trust (net assets of 2100 million dollars, all Japanese equity investment). In April, the interest rate tax was reduced from 4% to 18.75%. From this and the weakness of the New York stock market and poor outlook, from MayMutual fundHave been bought into the Japanese stock market. Keystone Custodian (Keystone Custodian Funds, Inc.) And Dreyfus Fund (Dreyfus Fund), andFidelity InvestmentsHas been attracting attention by incorporating Japanese stocks. In September, the Dreyfus fund (net assets of $9 billion) invested $24 million into Japanese stocks all at once. The next day, January 1,Federal ReserveStrengthened guidelines for Japanese equity investment.[31]

Pacific Fund investment advisors are at least Japan-French Investment Trusts (established in March 1964) and Nomura Securities (approved by the Ministry of Finance on January 3, 1969).

At that time, European investment trusts were the center of foreign investment. They made intensive investments in Japan's relatively limited good-quality and growth stocks and took full initiative in market price formation since the establishment of Euroclear. thusPrice earnings ratioThe concept has taken root in the Japanese market.[32]

Institutionalization through capital liberalization

Since September 1970,Sato administrationNet buying continued due to international investment trusts, which saw the Japanese stock price firm below. On April 4, a large-scale sale by overseas investors occurred due to the management crisis of IOS led by Bernard Kornfeld (so-called IOS shock). Global stock price plunge, Nikkei stock price fell 30%[33].. Japan banned foreign governments from acquiring short-term government securities and non-residents from unlisted public and corporate bond investment trusts (1971), making it even more difficult for foreigners to make a net increase in investment in Japan (1972 )[32].. But investment trusts are far from being canceledCapital liberalizationApproached. Measures on the Japanese side were abolished throughout 1973-4[32].

On May 1971, 5, Nomura Investment Trust Management set Japan's first international investment trust (international joint investment trust) for 4 billion yen.[34].. The investment advisors are Dreyfus and Morgan Grenfell (nowDeutsche Bank)Met[34].Oil shockIn November 1972, domestic sales of foreign investment trusts were liberalized[30].. The family fund gradually reduced the set amount from the following year 1973[30].. September 1973, 1Daiwa SecuritiesLaunched the Dreyfus Fund in Japan[34].. In January 1976, the family fund took improvement measures such as changing the indefinite trust period to a fixed term[30].. In 1977, it accounted for 57% of stock investment trusts[30].. The main axis of development of new products has shifted from unit type to additional type[30].

Released in 1980Medium-term government bond fundHowever, you can put it in and out after leaving it for a month[Annotation 16], It has become a popular product because of its product characteristics such as real interest rate exceeding bank deposits and compound interest for one month. Securities companiesDeposit similar productsThe investment trust was made popular by the development of. Incorporated securities tended to be the same as in the 1970s, and were the stocks and bonds of leading corporations whose direct transactions suppressed supply. Foreign capital took advantage of this kind of public-private fusion. 1985,Sumitomo BankGotthard Bank (acquired byGotthard-Bank)But,ItomanIssueForeign bondsBy doing the lead underwriter ofSilver certificate separationWas watered down[35]..

Jusen, REIT, and pension

It has become difficult for the soliciting and managing body and the incorporated securities to conduct research focusing only on Japan.

Bubble economyHas shown a significant increase in stock investment trusts,1989 Has risen to 58 trillion yen (including public and corporate bond investment trusts). Since it was difficult to avoid foreign exchange losses in stock investment trusts, the standard price was sluggish and many investors suffered losses. Around 1991, when the bubble burst, public and corporate bond investment trusts began to increase. Some analysts and scholarsSubprime loanAs mentioned above, the difficulty of selecting an investment trust led to the need for an evaluation company. So in 1996,Kumi FujisawaJapan's first investment trust valuation company Ifis (in 1999Standard & Poor's(Sold to the company) was established. Let's ask for a moment, what are the securities that are included in public and corporate bond investment trusts, which have been increasing for a while, and why some Japanese were interested in subprime loans. It failed in June 1996 to give important suggestions to this.Housing finance companyIs.

In 1997, the sale of investment trusts was lifted in the form of affiliated securities companies and investment trust management companies renting a part of a bank's space and acting as a sales window (store lending system) (Financial bang[Annotation 17].. Since December 1998, the sale of investment trusts at bank counters has been lifted.

Mutual funds and retirees

At present, people over the age of 60 who mainly manage deposits and savings have large financial assets.[36].. In order to take in such funds, we have developed products that have a monthly distribution and that are distributed in the months other than the month in which the pension is received, while paying attention to the actual conditions of living, that is, the main income of the pension, and paying attention to safety by diversifying investment. Products are ranked high in the net assets balance of mutual funds[Annotation 19].

However, independent FP (Financial plannerA lot of)WorkerAt retirementSeverance payBefore starting investment such as the purchase of mutual funds for the first time on the basis of the doing[37][38].. In this respect, the following reasons are given.

  • I'm feeling uplifted with a lot of money I've never had before, like retirement allowances, so it's possible that it's hard to make a calm decision
  • Although investment trusts are highly secure, investment always involves risks, and a certain amount of experience is required to understand the mechanism, market trends, investment technology, etc.
  • Banks with accounts that have been transferred to salaries and have received retirement allowances are well aware of the financial status of retirees (such as income and financial assets up to that point). Purchasing mutual funds as they are told may be a solicitation that prioritizes the interests of banks over the interests of retirees[39]

You can get the quickest information on the site of the management company, and you can know the base price of the day within that day. For the standard price of unit investment trusts, it is necessary to inquire at the sales outlet you purchased (such as a securities company).
  4. ^ For example, if the basic price is 2 yen and a 1:2 beneficiary right is subdivided, the basic price will be 1 yen and the number of holdings will be doubled.
  5. ^ Computer system manages the generation, disappearance, and transfer of beneficiary rights of the fund
  6. ^ A system in which a fixed percentage (about 1 to 5%) of fees are collected in advance at the time of purchase of investment trusts, and the principal starts to decrease in effect.
  7. ^ It takes the time and effort necessary for swiftly obtaining information related to investment and its analysis and response actions.
  8. ^ As a general rule, the number of shares to be traded is determined for individual stocks. For example, even if the stock price is 310 yen, if 1,000 shares are trading units, you can invest only 31 yen.[4]However, with open type investment trusts, you can buy (sell) a fractional number of units, for example, if the standard price is 1,200 yen, it will be 1 units at 8.333 yen, and if the standard price rises to 1,250 yen, it will also be 1 units at 8 units. For 1,500 yen, you can flexibly purchase as much as 1 units for 6.667 yen, and it is suitable for long-term funded savings and investment that regularly contributes a relatively small fixed amount.[5],Dollar cost averagingIt is also compatible with the risk reduction. In addition, with small funds of individuals,Unit stockIf you buy or sell a few things frequently, the trading fee burden on securities companies will not be ridiculous, but depending on the investment trust, you can collect huge amounts of funds from hundreds of thousands of investors and invest in large units, The cost is relatively low.
  9. ^ In order to purchase shares of a foreign company that is not listed in Japan, in principle, you must have an account with a securities company in the country in which the company is listed. You can leave all the trouble and qualifications (resident/non-resident etc.), money transfer, tax processing etc. for opening the account to professionals. Not only does it reduce the burden of study, funding, expenses, and risks, but it also becomes a diversified investment.
  10. ^ Unlike individual stocks that sell one minute after they are bought, even open mutual funds cannot be traded until the base price for the day, which is calculated daily after the market closes, is determined. In addition, many open-end funds have a minimum holding period (for example, 1 days), and if you sell for a shorter period, you will be fined. This means that if short-term purchases and sales are repeated, cash for payment must be secured at all times, which defeats the original purpose of collecting and investing funds from many investors. This is to prevent the investment funds from being depleted unnecessarily because the costs of the procedure are paid from the investment funds.
  11. ^ It is clear that there is no "free lunch" in the world, financial institutions sell investment trusts because sales fees are charged, and operating companies and fund managers operate and manage investment trusts because trust fees are charged. Therefore, the source of these costs is the investment funds contributed by investors. When purchasing an investment trust, an investor, like all product purchases, must judge the effect and cost/price.
  12. ^ Usually, it is the general public investors, pension unions, and other groups that do not invest primarily in purchasing mutual funds (based on the age and investment style of investors, multiple recommended mutual funds rather than individual stocks are recommended). “Fund of Funds” that invests in a combination ofSet mealType investment trusts" also exist[6]), contrary to the expectation that "it will be highly profitable because it is trusted by a professional fund manager", for example, to analyze various market conditions.indexHowever, there are rarely high-earning mutual funds that outperform indexes, and ratherMany mutual funds can only realize profits that do not reach the index[7].. This is from the pastSecurities and Exchange CommissionArgues that the investment trust industry should be compared to the performance of individual investors.
  13. ^ Risk diversification means investing by diversifying in various directions, and even if one of the investees makes a large profit, if the other investee does not follow it, the big profit will fade as a whole. Is clear, and on the contrary, it is natural that the purpose of risk dispersion is to diminish the large loss.
  14. ^ In general, when a beginner invests in investment, it is recommended to buy a long-term investment, for example, a good stock and hold it for several years to ten years. But professional investors (fund managers) working in mutual funds cannot do this. In order to avoid potential or explicit criticisms of “only accepting trust fees and doing nothing”, the fund managerDay tradinglikeSpeculationIt is said that there is a tendency to execute targeted trading.Expenses related to the buying and selling of investment targets are contributed from the operating funds collected from investors., As a result, lower the standard price of the mutual fund. Some investment trusts are proactively active (mostly short-term trading)Active typeThere is something that advocates "" that expresses passive operation (long-term holding tendency), and it seems that "active type" can expect higher profits at first glance, but the fact is that there are investment destinations in the same field Compared to investment trusts, there are quite a few cases where passive types result in higher profits (active types tend to have higher trust fees).[8].
