Tactical change – 14 September 2017

19 September 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 took advantage of bouts of risk aversion on heightened geopolitical risk surrounding North Korea and extreme weather events in the US to add to the portfolio’s overweight in equities. The portfolio’s commodities exposure was moved to a marginal underweight, reflecting ongoing potential for weaker economic activity in China next year. We slightly decreased the portfolio’s exposure to government bonds given current low bond yields. We maintained the exposure to global high yield bonds as a lower risk way of gaining corporate exposure with some income. Property exposure was kept in line with the benchmark.”
