Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2021

  • Within U.S. equities generally, we have created a barbell positioning between innovative growth and value strategies. We believe innovative companies will displace vulnerable, aging business models, while value stocks have historically outperformed during periods of recovery after a recession.
  • The most notable change in the Fund’s composition over the quarter was a decrease in exposure to Emerging Market debt, as we believed U.S. Treasury yields would rise significantly, causing the asset class to struggle. We also felt that the market was too optimistic that the new U.S. Presidential Administration would quickly improve U.S.-China relations.
  • We also modestly increased exposure to high yield corporate bonds over the quarter. With valuations of higher rated credits at pre-pandemic levels, we are constructive on lower rated segments of the market - particularly in the essential and nonessential industries that are most benefiting from a continued reopening of the economy.
  • While there are short-term volatility risks stemming from COVID-19, we believe economic fundamentals will have an upward trajectory in 2021 as vaccinations continue to lead to a gradual reopening of the economy and latent demand, dormant services, and consumer spending all begin to normalize to pre-pandemic levels. With the Fed’s new approach to monetary policy, an anchored short-end of the yield curve, negative real yields, and very low volatility, the demand for risk can be very strong.
