Tactical Change - 11 August 2022

11 August 2022
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 maintain a reduced tactical exposure to risk assets, holding underweight positions in both stocks and commodities. Despite tight supply, the growth outlook has continued to deteriorate which has seen commodities struggle; we have reduced our exposure to the asset class. We maintain a broadly neutral position in bonds at the aggregate level, with a reduced exposure to high yield bonds on weaker growth expectations. We have also moved to a modest underweight position in commercial property through market drifts.
