As of March 31, 2019, the portfolio is underweight in the sector relative to its benchmark, the MSCI EAFE Value Index.
  • We increased the portfolio’s exposure to the materials sector with the purchase of a Canadian mining company. The portfolio remains underweight in the sector, relative to its benchmark.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s exposure to the communication services sector by selling its position in a German telecommunications company and by selling its position in a Japanese telecommunications company.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s exposure to the utilities sector by selling its position in a Spanish corporation which operates the national electricity grid in Spain.
  • Geographically, we increased the portfolio’s exposure to Emerging Markets, which stood at approximately 8.9% at quarter-end, increasing the portfolio’s overweight position in developing countries, relative to its benchmark, which does not have any Emerging Markets exposure.
