16 February 2024, London – New York – Oxford Metrica and JAKOTA Index Portfolios are proud to introduce the OM JAKOTA 60 Index (OMJ 60), a pioneering stock index designed to furnish investors with a comprehensive measure of the JAKOTA region’s market performance, encompassing Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

The OMJ 60 Index, a derivative of the JAKOTA Blue Chip 150 Index, is a smart beta index consisting of the top twenty stocks from each of the three countries, selected for their market capitalisation and performance. This innovative index aims to offer a unique asset class representing the rapid growth and potential of the JAKOTA markets, providing a valuable tool for global investors seeking diversified exposure to high-growth markets.

“By introducing the OMJ 60, we aim to fill a gap in the current index landscape and offer investors a new way to gauge and participate in the vibrant economies of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan,” said Dr. Rory Knight, Chairman of Oxford Metrica. “We believe this index not only highlights the region’s significance in the global economy but also its potential for yielding above-average returns in the coming decade”.

The OMJ 60 Index is expected to serve as a benchmark for investors, allowing them to track the performance of the region’s most significant and influential companies. Its evidence-based and equal-weighted approach provides a balanced representation of the three countries, offering a natural hedge against currency risk and a strategic tool for international asset allocation and performance measurement.

“We are excited to launch the OMJ 60 Index and contribute to the evolving landscape of global investment indices. This index represents our commitment to delivering innovative investment solutions that meet the needs of today’s sophisticated investors,” commented Ms. Motoko Yorozu, Managing Director of JAKOTA Index Portfolios.
