Portfolio Positioning as of 3/31/2019

  • We continue to hold the view that U.S. domestic growth will separate from global weakness. Despite the recent market volatility and downturn of some soft economic indicators, we are cautiously optimistic in the U.S. economy as the labor market remains tight. We continue to believe that inflation expectations will gradually increase, and we remain focused on domestic opportunities given the potential for increased volatility and event risk abroad.
  • Overall, we decreased the portfolio’s exposure to structured products, including asset-backed securities (ABS), commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), and mortgage-backed securities (MBS) while adding  to U.S. Treasuries during the quarter.
  • While we reduced the portfolio’s allocation to high quality ABS, we favored longer duration bonds as they have provided notable risk-adjusted spread pick-up.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s exposure to CMBS due to spread tightening, but continue to favor single-asset/ single-borrower securities across the credit spectrum.
  • The portfolio’s allocations to mortgage-backed securities (MBS) were moved into “Uniform MBS” (UMBS) given Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s joint initiative which seeks to simplify investment by standardizing MBS issues currently offered by each entity. We continue to overweight higher-coupon MBS.
