International Client Focus

Brightrust differentiates itself from other local Japanese advisors by its focus on a core client base of global investors. We are committed to providing solutions to the hurdles facing many global investors when it comes to investing in Japanese private equity. These include:


  • Lack of readily available information to non-Japanese investors on investment activity in Japan's local private equity market
  • Lack of clarity on the complete universe of Japanese funds
  • The fact many Japanese funds still do not actively seek investments from overseas investors
  • The perceived ambiguity of the Japanese tax system regarding private equity fund investments
