The Japanese yen is expected to weaken amid good global growth, said Standard Chartered Bank's head of global macro strategy and foreign exchange research.
He added that the country is unlikely to hit its inflation target of 2 percent by 2019.
"We don't expect much yen strength even in the context of a weaker dollar," Eric Robertsen told CNBC's "Capital Connection" on Monday.
"Growth is good — they are benefiting from good global growth, good regional growth. But there's a lack of inflation," he said, noting that Japan's inflation rate net of food and energy is below 1 percent.
With growth, financial markets are stabilized, and the yen generally doesn't draw as much investment when markets are stable. However, if geopolitical worries or sustained weakness in stock markets were to come about, then the yen may benefit, Robertsen added.
