GPIF Said Major Launch Of Alternative Investment Program In 2016

In an interview with the CEO and CIO of GPIF, Nikkei reported today:
    
 CIO Hiromichi Mizuno, in his first interview with a Japanese media outlet since taking office in January, indicated that the GPIF will step up investment in alternative assets.

     The fund will increase real estate, infrastructure and unlisted stocks to as much as 5% of total assets. "We are hiring and will assign four or so managers to each" category, Mizuno said.

     With its current quarters increasingly cramped, the GPIF will relocate to a bigger office in Tokyo's Minato Ward. The new alternative-asset investment team will be ready to roll after the move and get into full swing as soon as next year.

     But Mitani noted that the fund is not ready to aggressively increase investment in such assets, citing the costs involved. Assets like real estate must be securitized rather than simply purchased by the GPIF, so the complexity of the process adds commission costs.

Selling a business is a complex endeavor. Many entrepreneurs postpone the sale of their business due to uncertainties and a fear of not getting what they want. As a result, when the time comes and a business must be sold anyway, it is often a fire sale, and the proceeds are seldom satisfactory. A worst-case scenario is closing the business doors and walking away after giving up on all dreams to get decent cash for years of hard work. In buying a business, you eliminate the risks related to start-ups. You will have a cash flow from the very first day of ownership. It’s like buying a car instead of an assembly kit. God only knows how you will manage to assemble those part on your own. However, ready for use an already assembled car can drive you instantly.
