PORTFOLIO ALLOCATION

In April, the GTAA Growth strategy was heavily invested in pro-cyclical markets, with five 10% long positions in U.S., Canadian, Eurozone, Japanese, and emerging market stocks. In addition, the portfolio had five additional 10% exposures to U.S. REITs, international REITs, U.S. preferred shares, emerging market sovereign bonds, and U.S. high yield bonds.

Our models had no exposure to the “safe haven” asset classes in our investment universe (short-term investment grade bonds and Treasuries).

For May, our portfolio is maintaining its pro-growth stance, with no change in positioning from April.
