PORTFOLIO ALLOCATION

In June, the GTAA strategy was defensively positioned, with three 10% long positions in U.S. REITs, U.S. Preferred Shares and emerging market sovereign bonds. The remainder of the portfolio was 17.5% invested in long-term U.S. Treasuries and 52.5% invested in short-term U.S. investment grade bonds.

All five exposures rose during the month as both pro-cyclical and defensive assets rallied in response to expectations that the Federal Reserve will begin aggressively lowering interest rates. U.S. REITs rose 1.54%, emerging market bonds were up 3.51%, and U.S. preferred shares advanced 1.3%, while our positions in Treasuries and investment grade bonds rose 0.95% and 0.96%, respectively.

For July, our portfolio has added some risk, moving up our pro-cyclical exposure from 30% to 70%. We maintained our 10% exposures in U.S. preferred shares and emerging market sovereign bonds, while liquidating our position in U.S. REITs. In addition, we added 10% long positions in U.S. stocks, Eurozone stocks, Japanese stocks, emerging market stocks, and U.S. high yield bonds. The remaining 30% of the portfolio is evenly split between long-term Treasuries and short-term U.S. investment grade bonds.
