Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2018

  • On September 30th, the Fund changed its benchmark to the MSCI EAFE Value Index. These bullets are written compared to the Fund’s new benchmark.
  • Over the course of the fourth quarter, we increased the portfolio’s exposure to the consumer discretionary sector by adding to its position in a Japanese automotive manufacturing company and by adding to its position in a Hong-Kong based entertainment and gaming company. As of December 31, the portfolio is overweight in the sector relative to its benchmark, the MSCI EAFE Value Index.
  • We increased the portfolio’s exposure to the industrials sector with the purchase of a Japanese general trading company. The portfolio moved from an overweight to an underweight position in the sector, relative to its new benchmark.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s exposure to the information technology sector by selling its position in a Taiwanese semiconductor company and by selling its position in a Hong-Kong based consumer electronics company.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s exposure to the energy sector by reducing its positions in a Hong-Kong based oil exploration and distribution company, and in a Russian oil exploration and distribution company.
  • Geographically, we increased the portfolio’s exposure to Japan, however the portfolio’s positioning in the region changed from an overweight to an underweight, as the current benchmark has significantly more exposure to the region than the previous benchmark. We reduced the portfolio’s position in the United Kingdom. We reduced the portfolio’s allocation to emerging markets, which stood at approximately 7.1% at quarter-end, moving overweight relative to its current benchmark, which does not have any emerging markets exposure. The portfolio is overweight in North America and Western Europe, while underweight in Japan, the United Kingdom and Asia Developed, relative to its current benchmark.
