The team begin by examining the latest fund and trust news, including record investment trust fundraising, whether there are signs of ESG ‘investor fatigue’, and top-performing funds and trusts in the first half of the year.

Later, Nicholas Weindling, manager of the JPMorgan Japanese (LSE:JFJ) Investment Trust, joins the podcast to discuss how he finds the best companies in Japan, the themes of e-commerce and automation, and whether the country could enjoy an Olympics bounce.

Finally, the focus turns to the Janus Henderson UK Responsible Income fund, which appears on interactive investor’s ACE 40 rated list of ethical investments.
