Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2015

  • Over the course of the quarter, we increased the portfolio’s allocation to the consumer staples sector, investing in a global beverage company and a Swiss bottling firm, which resulted in a move to a broadly neutral position in the sector relative to the benchmark, the MSCI EAFE Index. We also added to the energy sector in the second quarter, moving from an underweight to an overweight position. A Canadian petroleum company was the main purchase in the sector.
  • In the past three months, we reduced the portfolio’s allocation to health care stocks, through the sale of shares in two Japanese and Danish pharmaceutical companies, in order to increase our underweight position relative to the benchmark.
  • The portfolio is overweight in financials, industrials, information technology, and telecoms and has underweight positions in consumer discretionary, health care, and utilities. The portfolio’s most significant underweight is in the materials sector.
  • Geographically, the portfolio has the largest underweight relative to its benchmark in Europe ex-United Kingdom; the allocation declined slightly over the quarter, predominantly driven by an underweight in Switzerland. We moved the portfolio to a slight overweight position in the United Kingdom and maintain an underweight in Japan. The portfolio’s most marked regional overweight is in Asia-Pacific ex-Japan.
  • At quarter-end, emerging markets represented approximately 11.2% of the portfolio.
