Managing pension funds in an environment of extremely low-interest rates and ultra-expensive stock markets is treacherous and the most important issue is to avoid sharp downdrafts due to equity corrections or bear markets.
Our prudent approach to the markets led us to build protections in December 2019 against a potential turn in global equity markets. These protections worked against the portfolio in January 2020 but delivered their expected added-value in February 2020.
The Portfolio remains extremely defensive for the moment with 22 % in equities, 37 % in bonds, and another 15 % in bond funds.
