Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2019

  • During the second quarter of 2019, the portfolio outperformed its primary benchmark, the Russell 2000® Index and its secondary benchmark, a blend consisting of 85% Russell 2000® Index/15% S&P Developed Ex-U.S. SmallCap® Index.
  • The portfolio’s weightings in domestic small-cap growth and micro-cap growth stocks contributed to relative performance. Additionally, the portfolio’s allocations to international small-cap stocks and micro-cap value equities modestly contributed to outperformance.
  • The portfolio’s exposure to small-cap and smid value equities detracted from relative performance.
  • During the quarter, the portfolio’s weighting in the financials sector increased, while its allocation to health care and industrials decreased. The health care, industrials, and information technology sectors are the largest weightings in the portfolio.
