Tactical change – 13 October 2022

13 October 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 small underweight position in stocks, given pessimistic macro outlook. However, we have added to the asset class, moving closer to neutral, as markets could be primed for a short term rebound with investor sentiment reaching overly bearish levels. Geopolitical risk is high and we have moved to a small overweight position in commodities. We have added exposures to short dated corporate bonds and moved to a more neutral position in bonds in aggregate, following the recent sharp selloff in the asset class. We maintain an underweight position in commercial property.
