Hirobumi & Partners, a registered investment advisory firm independent of any financial institution that offers a full line-up of investment advisory services for corporate and individual investors today announced the launch of its latest portfolio: The Transportation Portfolio (T-Portfolio).

This portfolio is based on a report by the Hirobumi & Partners Research team. The portfolio consists of approximately 50 securities that the research team believes are best positioned to benefit from growth opportunities in a new era of transportation created by disruptive technologies that are transforming the automotive industry.

The portfolio is a Unit Investment Trust, with a five-year life, consisting primarily of large cap stocks with market capitalization. Two new divisions will be created for this project: Hirobumi & Partners Wealth Management Capital Markets and Hirobumi & Partners Investment Management, to support the sales distribution.

  • Shared transportation: Partial ownership and/or common use of vehicles. The shared use of a vehicle, bicycle, or other mode – is an innovative transportation strategy that enables users to gain short-term access to transportation modes on an “as-needed” basis.
