Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2016

  • We continue to maintain a modest underweight in equities, with tilts toward value stocks and non-U.S. markets.  Within fixed income, we moved to a small overweight in high yield, while maintaining a long-standing underweight position in interest rate-sensitive bonds.  We also slightly reduced our U.S. dollar position.
  • Changes to equity allocations were driven by shifts in relative value, the outlook for monetary policy, and economic fundamentals.  As global stocks fell during the first six weeks of the period, we modestly increased our position in U.S. equities.  A rapid recovery in prices, however, led us to close the quarter with a modest underweight in stocks.  We also continued to shift the mix of equity holdings in favor of international securities.
  • After reducing allocations to high yield bonds throughout 2015, we moved back to an overweight position during the first quarter.  Spreads hit new post-crisis highs in February, presenting attractive relative value. 
  • Although we continue to believe that the U.S. dollar will benefit from monetary policy divergences, U.S. Federal reserve officials struck a more dovish-than-expected tone in March, leading us to modestly scale back our long U.S. dollar positions.  Foreign currency exposure continued to be tilted in favor of emerging market currencies and against non-dollar developed-market currencies.
