Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2019

  • The portfolio is overweight the consumer staples sector, where we see a combination of strong free cash flow and improving organic growth.
  • The portfolio remains overweight the health care sector, with an emphasis on European pharmaceuticals, given their improving organic growth rates and reasonable valuations.
  • Global equity markets have risen year to date, driven by a more dovish U.S. Federal Reserve, hopes for an easing of the U.S.-China trade battle, and signs of increased Chinese economic stimulus.  We continue to see value opportunities across both Europe/U.K. and Asia-Pacific, with many cyclical companies trading close to trough valuation levels.
  • 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.
