Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2018

  • Over the course of the fourth quarter, we increased the portfolio’s allocation to the utilities sector with the increase of its position in a U.S. natural gas utility company. The portfolio remains slightly overweight in the sector, relative to its benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Index.
  • We added to the portfolio’s allocation to the financials sector with the purchases of a U.S. bank and a Scandinavian insurance company, increasing the portfolio’s overweight in the sector, relative to the benchmark.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s allocation to the consumer discretionary sector by reducing its position in a U.S.-based multinational technology company. The portfolio remained underweight in the sector, relative to the benchmark, as the sector’s weight in the benchmark also decreased.
  • Geographically, we increased the portfolio’s allocation to Western Europe, increasing our overweight position in the region, relative to the benchmark. At quarter-end, Emerging Markets represented approximately 7.4% of the portfolio. We reduced the portfolio’s position in Emerging Markets, moving further underweight, relative to the benchmark. The portfolio remains overweight in Western Europe, the United Kingdom, and North America, and underweight in Japan and Asia Developed.
