Japan is to announce its public pension fund -- the world's biggest -- will double the amount of equities it holds in its investment portfolio, reports said, as it seeks out higher returns to cope with an ageing populationJapan's public pension fund -- the world's biggest -- said Friday it will double the amount of equities in its investment portfolio, as it seeks higher returns to cope with a rapidly ageing population. The unprecedented shift by the $1.26 trillion Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) will see stocks account for a combined 50 percent of its portfolio, up from about 24 percent now, pumping billions of dollars into domestic and overseas share markets. "The new portfolio is designed to make the fund operate more effectively as the economy emerges from deflation," the fund's president Takahiro Mitani told a press conference in Tokyo. "We're trying to generate long-term returns necessary for the fund's operation -- but with the least risk -- by diversifying its investment mix."
