Portfolio Positioningas of 12/31/2020

  • The Fund is a “fund of funds” that invests in affiliated mutual funds managed by Lord Abbett. Under normal conditions, through the underlying funds, the Fund indirectly invests in the equity securities of U.S. and foreign micro-cap, small, and mid-sized companies. The Fund uses a “blend” strategy to gain exposure to both growth and value stocks.
  • During the quarter, the Fund’s weightings in the information technology and financials sectors modestly increased, while its weighting to the health care sector decreased. The information technology, industrials, and health care sectors are the largest absolute weightings in the portfolio.
  • Overall, we continue to believe that industries powering the technology revolution – from the cloud to artificial intelligence to biotechnology, medical devices, and ecommerce – are best positioned to weather and benefit from the innovative environment that will likely persist for years. Moreover, unlike many other areas of the economy, we believe that these targeted areas of innovation should continue to exhibit fundamental strength and have the potential for greater relative performance through an economic slowdown, as they continue to displace older businesses and outdated technologies.
  • In addition, we are investing in the essential and nonessential industries that are benefitting from a continued reopening of the economy. The magnitude and scale of this global pandemic has accelerated some secular shifts which are likely to remain even with access of the vaccine. The portfolio’s positioning currently reflects this view as we are investing in companies and industries that we believe are better poised to adapt to and benefit from these structural economic changes.
