Tactical change – 8 March 2018

8 March 2018
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?

“Our Investment Clock is in the later cycle ‘Overheat’ stage, with strong global growth and more risk of inflation.

We have added to equities again, capitalising on stock market weakness and given that supportive world growth conditions remain in place. We also have increased the allocation to index linked bonds and conventional UK gilts. The changes were funded out of high yield debt, government bonds, property and cash.

With economies continuing to expand and inflation remaining benign, we are overweight global equities, global high yield bonds and commodities.”
