Monthly Portfolio Changes

In January, we made three changes to the portfolios. In fixed income, we rotated our allocation to investment grade credit out of Europe/US and into the UK where valuations look relatively attractive, particularly around the 10-year maturity. We also purchased EM Local debt and sold EM Hard Currency debt as global markets remain flush with liquidity and should benefit from a weaker US dollar. This trade also brings our overweight emerging market debt positions more in line with the benchmark. In equities, we sold our position in Indian equities and purchased a new position in Taiwanese equities. The Taiwan stock market has a high exposure to the semiconductor industry, which is forecast to re-accelerate in 2020. Taiwan also stands to benefit from shifting supply chains. We did not make any changes to our investments in commodities or property this month.
