Having rebounded sharply over the last month, investor sentiment is now neutral. Central banks have signalled a loosening of policy but, while there are early signs of stabilisation, global economic activity remains mixed. Chinese economic stimulus measures to boost activity appear to be having an effect at the start of Q2, reducing the risk of a global recession in the short term. We have slightly increased our moderate overweight in equities and our overweight allocation to short duration global high yield debt, reducing cash and increasing our underweight in UK government bonds.
