Tactical Change - 14 July 2016

14 July 2016
Trevor Greetham, Head of Multi Asset at Royal London Asset Management, has made a tactical change to the asset allocation of the Governed Portfolios (GPs) and Governed Retirement Income Portfolios (GRIPs).

What’s changing?

“Global equity markets are up strongly on the back of expectations for looser policy in response to the UK’s vote to leave the EU. We have responded by trimming our overweight in equities and moving Europe to a small underweight. Sentiment is getting euphoric in the near term but we see downside risks linked to the UK’s Brexit negotiations, fragility in the euro area banking system and the US Presidential election. 

We remain modestly overweight equities as we see continued recovery in the world economy. We would look to buy dips later in the summer in commodities and the emerging markets in particular, asset classes where Brexit will have a limited impact but where loose US policy is a major boost.”
