Portfolio Positioning as of 06/30/2020

  • The largest sector overweight is in information technology where we are positioned in growing secular trends that revolve around content in smartphones, Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G. Despite a pause in demand as a result of the global pandemic, we do not believe these trends will be displaced permanently.  
  • The portfolio currently has an underweight allocation to consumer staples relative to the index as our holdings in the sector have been outperforming and we see less relative value opportunities remaining.
  • We have been adding significantly to the consumer discretionary sector where we have seen some of the hardest hit areas of the market with the largest dislocations. In many instances, we waited for companies to raise capital which should put them in a position to survive a continued crisis as well as give them an opportunity to grow faster.
  • Within the real estate sector, we continue to focus on logistics companies as the coronavirus pandemic accelerates the behavioral shift of the movement to online and the need for more sophisticated logistics solutions.
  • International small cap stocks have been relative underperformers in the recent past, and roughly neutral in the last three to five years. We believe they are positioned to outperform.
