Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2019

  • The portfolio is overweight the information technology sector, with an emphasis on Asian semiconductor-related companies that are experiencing a recovery in demand while valuations remains attractive.
  • The portfolio remains underweight both the communication services and utilities sectors, where we see poor industry fundamentals and unattractive valuation.
  • While global equity markets have rallied sharply over the past year, international value equities have lagged, and could be a beneficiary of valuation support and an improving economic environment.
  • Key identifiable risks include an escalation in the ongoing U.S.-China trade disputes, a prolonged Brexit process which increases economic uncertainty, and a negative global growth surprise.
