Is The Weak Yen Good For Japanese Equities?

The Bank of Japan is set to meet this week, with economists widely expecting the central bank to maintain a dovish monetary policy. This policy direction puts it at odds with global central banks that are hiking interest rates in tune with the Fed, resulting in yen weakness. What kind of impact does this have on Japanese equities? We discuss the market outlook with Zui Shiromoto of Abderdeen Standard Investments. Image Credit: Shutterstock.com
