Those institutional investors tired of the Eurozone volatility are looking to Japan as a sovereign investment. Foreign holdings have risen to a record high, where ownership of Japanese government bonds stood at 8.3% of the total, according to the Bank of Japan. Foreign flows continue to clime higher, with Finance Ministry data showing net foreign flows in to medium and long-term JGBs totaled roughly $28 billion since early April.  Accounting for volatility, Japan’s debt maturing in more than a year has returned 1 per cent so far this year, which is higher than either U.S. bonds or German bunds.
