Portfolio Positioning as of 6/30/2020

  • We did not view the drop in value of our securities during the first quarter as a credit or default issue. Rather, we believed it was due to a supply / demand imbalance in the short-term credit markets caused by market volatility concerns related to COVID-19. Therefore, over the quarter we added to BBB-rated securities in order to take advantage of the unprecedented spread widening experienced in the short-term markets during March.
  • The largest change in portfolio positioning over the period was a large decrease in the portfolio’s commercial paper allocation. This was not a tactical shift, but rather a product of weak supply within the commercial paper market as new issue investment grade bonds replaced the supply of the asset class.
  • Overall, the portfolio remains high-quality, short-term and very liquid. We remain focused on maintaining a high degree of liquidity in the portfolio, which should allow us to continue to take advantage of attractive opportunities in the front-end markets.
