In order for Kamakura Investment Trust to have more “good companies” in which it wants to invest 10 or 20 years from now, Japan needs to develop human resources with an entrepreneurial mindset. Kamakura Investment Trust believes that as part of its core business, being involved in the entrepreneurial and investment education of children will lead to the development of Japanese society in the long run. What the kids want to do! A bud sprouts from the seed, becomes a bud, and then blooms. We will try our best to create such a future. (Kamakura Investment Trust Co., Ltd.)
