PORTFOLIO ALLOCATION

During January, the GTAA Growth strategy continued to shun growth-sensitive assets, with the portfolio 75% invested in short-term U.S. investment grade corporate bonds, which rose 1.3%, and 25% invested in long-term U.S. Treasuries, which rose 0.4%. For our Canadian dollar-based accounts, this gain was tempered by our 25% short exposure to the Canadian dollar, which rose 3.8% vs. its U.S. counterpart.

For February, our models have made significant adjustments to the portfolio. Specifically, we have initiated 10% long positions in the following seven markets: Canadian stocks, emerging market stocks, U.S. REITs, international REITs, emerging market sovereign bonds, U.S. preferred shares, and U.S. high yield bonds. The remaining 30% of portfolio is allocated to short-term investment grade corporate bonds (22.5%) and long-term Treasuries (7.5%).
