Portfolio Positioningas of 3/31/2021

  • The complexion of the market has changed since 2021 began. Covid-19 continues to diminish as a market force, and the focus is now on a strong economic recovery in its wake. Rates have risen significantly, and this has driven a leadership change from secular growth to value. The news on the economy is good and the U.S. Federal Reserve remains supportive. We believe inflation will remain low over the intermediate term, but conditions are set for a near term jump.
  • We have adjusted the portfolio to reflect the magnitude of the increase in interest rates and the degree to which the market has begun to discount a stronger than expected economic recovery. Most of the changes were related to these reflation and reopening developments.
  • We remain structurally bullish on the outlook for growth equities. In our view, there is  a long runway for innovation. The dual forces of the tech revolution and low interest rates create the backdrop for good performance over the coming years. 
  • We remain focused on identifying companies with sound business models, favorable industry conditions, potential competitive advantages, and competent management teams. We continue to assess market sentiment and momentum factors to balance risk and opportunity.
