Fund Structure

At JAFCO, the investment team in each region (Japan, USA, Asia) manages its respective fund series. In each region, investment decisions are made locally, and the investment team, deep-rooted in each community, carries out the whole process from identifying potential candidates, making investment, to providing post-investment support. In addition to funds raised from external investors, 30%~40% of total commitments to funds are invested by JAFCO, thereby high fund performance is directly connected to profits of JAFCO and its shareholders.
