Tactical change – 15 June 2017

20 June 2017



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?

“We reduced the underweight position in bonds by increasing exposure to gilts. We maintained a small overweight position in equities and added to positions in global high yield as a lower risk way of getting corporate exposure, as summer months tend to be more volatile.   

Recent signs of weaker economic activity in China led us to trim the overweight positions in commodities. We increased exposure to European equities, as the political outlook is more stable and European growth indicators continue to improve. We kept property exposure in line with the benchmark.”
