“We are buying equities - particularly in the UK - funded largely from cash and corporate bonds in anticipation of a 'Remain' vote in the EU referendum.
Reductions in equity exposure in recent months mean we entered the summer with only a small overweight. Market weakness caused by doubts over the outcome of the UK’s Referendum vote presented a buying opportunity in our view.
We remain overweight European and Japanese equities, areas we feel will benefit both from loose policy and a return of dollar strength after the vote. We remain underweight UK and US equities and maintain our broadly neutral allocation to Asia Pacific ex Japan and the emerging markets.”
