Investment

The Investment Advisory Committee met on 13 June 2017 to review our Governed Range and funds.

Highlights

  • There have been three tactical asset allocation changes since the last IAC meeting in February. The most recent change took place on 11 May 2017. New SAA positions for the GRIPs were recommended this quarter.
  • Over the quarter, within the Governed Portfolios, we maintained a small overweight in equities and commodities, added to positions in global high yield while slightly trimming the commodity exposure. Within the GRIPs, we reduced our overweight position in equities and increased exposure to global high yields and gilts.
  • European elections dominated over the last quarter. Politics could still affect markets but we expect a positive investment backdrop for risk assets to continue with global growth stable and interest rates remaining at historically low levels. An unpredictable White House, Brexit negotiations and concerns regarding Chinese growth could result in a sell-off in risk assets over the summer.
