Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) has never disclosed its specific stock holdings, for fear that it would affect the country’s market too much.

But that will soon change. The pension fund said on Thursday it would disclose its stock holdings over next summer.

From the Financial Times:

Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF), the largest pension fund in the world, will disclose the stocks it holds for the first time later this summer.

GPIF said in a statement today that it will review the way it discloses information about the assets being held, “paying attention to the impact on the market, enhance its information disclosure.”

A spokesperson said that specific methods of disclosure were still to be decided.

The fund will disclose the assets it holds, including individual stocks, on July 29, when it will report the investment results for fiscal 2015.

GPIF oversees $1.2 trillion in assets.
