Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2016

  • The financials sector remains the portfolio’s largest absolute weight. Our preference is to diversify sector exposure broadly across banks, insurance, and high-quality REITs, given the uncertainty in interest rates.
  • The health care sector still remains underweight compared to the portfolio’s benchmark, the Russell 2500™ Index. We believe the U.S. Health Care Reform has been reflected in stocks. As a result we are targeting stocks with company specific catalysts.
  • The consumer discretionary sector remains underweight compared to the portfolio’s benchmark. We remain cautious but are continuously evaluating opportunities, as mall traffic remains subdued, despite lower gas prices. 
  • The portfolio remains underweight the industrials sector relative to its benchmark, yet we are cautiously adding exposure due to lingering concerns as commodity prices and growth in China continue to weigh on stocks in the sector.
  • We believe that the economic outlook for the United States remains favorable among developed countries. We remain cautious toward stocks with significant international exposure, given continued global volatility and uncertainty.
