The portfolio remains underweight in the sector, relative to its benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Index.

  • We decreased the portfolio’s allocation to the financials sector by selling its positions in a U.S. bank and a Swiss life insurance company. The portfolio shifted from an overweight to an underweight in the sector, relative to the benchmark.
  • Geographically, we increased the portfolio’s allocation to Emerging Markets, which represented approximately 7.9% of the portfolio, decreasing our underweight position to developing countries, relative to the benchmark. We also increased our allocation to Japan, decreasing our underweight position in the region, relative to the benchmark.
