PORTFOLIO ALLOCATION

In February, the GTAA Growth strategy moved away from the extreme risk-averse stance that it had been maintaining since November of last year, when it was 100% invested in short-term investment grade corporate bonds.

During February, we had 10% long positions in the following, seven markets: Canadian stocks (+2.68%), emerging market stocks (-1.53%), U.S. REITs (+0.7%), international REITs (-1.47%), emerging market sovereign bonds (+0.4%), U.S. preferred shares (+0.58%), and U.S. high yield bonds (+1.21%). The remaining 30% of the portfolio was three quarters allocated to short-term investment grade corporate bonds (+0.25%), and ¼ invested in long-term Treasuries (-1.37%).

For March, our portfolio maintained its 10% long exposures from the previous month and liquidated its 30% position in U.S. Treasuries and short-term investment grade corporate bonds in favour of 10% long positions in U.S., Japanese, and Eurozone stocks.
