Tactical change – 9 September 2021

16 September 2021



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?

Global equities reached fresh highs in August despite some mixed global economic data, with short term inflation numbers being most challenging for markets. Bond markets, however, continued to believe that inflation was a transitory issue after reassurance from major central banks. 

Commodities and stocks remained strong in August as the global economic recovery continued. We maintained our overweight positions in both global high yield bonds and commodities, but marginally increased the modest positive tilt to equities.

The portfolios moved marginally more underweight corporate bonds and increased the underweight in gilts given inflation uncertainty, and maintained the slight underweight in commercial property.
