Fund Management Services

Overview

At Minato Management, we believe that all businesses have value and a social significance. We do not pursue profit simply for profit’s sake, but identify the true hidden value in various investments and then meticulously craft business plans aligned to our clients’ needs.

Optimized evaluation of values and risked using our network and expertise

We thoroughly investigate both the upside and downside of each investment project together with third-party experts in order to produce proper estimates of the risk/return balance. These investigations do not stop at judgments about project feasibility, but also take into consideration all possible aspects of the investment, such as its likely impact on accounting and tax-related issues, which are two of our main strengths.

Structuring investment scheme for a customer-oriented

Of course, there are many ways to assemble an investment portfolio. We like to capitalize on our extensive personal network and in-depth experience to draw up a business plan that matches both the investment target and the underlying assets, then use our fund management skills to increase the total value.
We practice proactive information disclosure, because we want to deliver the kind of straightforward asset management services in which all parties grasp the investment situation.

Creation of an unique investment assets

Our investment funds take into consideration both society’s needs and the social value we are creating in the process of proposing a plan with the most attractive return.
We offer Japanese investment assets to overseas investors and overseas investment assets to Japanese investors. We are always seeking to develop investments that only we can create and manage as well as a level of investor coordination that only we can provide.

Investment in renewable energy

In Japan, the Fixed Wholesale Purchase System of Renewable Energy started in 2012. Under this system, electric power generated by renewable energy sources, including solar and wind power, is purchased at a fixed price for 20 years and from the viewpoint of investment, this is an investment product from which extremely stable earnings can be expected, as Japan is a nation with low political risks. It is also considered that meeting the demand for renewably-generated electric power is extremely important and socially significant in Japan, as it has few natural resources and a small land mass.
Minato Management structures and manages a solar investment fund that is currently under the limelight in Japan.

Investment in ships and airplanes

In Japan, there is a product called JOL (Japanese Operating Leasing) in which ships and airplanes are investment assets. The Japanese depreciation system is used for this financial product and investors can enjoy the benefits of tax deferrals. On the other hand, charterers of ships and airplanes can make use of JOL as a means of funding to acquire additional assets. JOL has a long history and investments in large tankers and jetliners can be made.
Minato Management has been successful in developing some types of ships and airplanes as investment products, which were difficult to commercialize due to obstacles such as size and business feasibility, and structuring funds by making use of the immense pool of experience and know-how accumulated throughout the years.
