Weekly Global Equities Strategy Update

We like to reiterate our positive stance on Japanese equities, combined with
partial hedging of the Yen, as the BoJ’s continued easing, and the potential to
drive it lower against major currencies including the US$, Euro, and AUD, are
fundamentally very attractive, and also will benefit from a seasonal period of
strength until end of March (end of fiscal year 2017).
