Equities 

The latest rebalance saw only minor adjustments to our equity sleeve asset allocation. The most prominent move within the sleeve is in U.S Equities, increasing our position by +1.30%, promoted by strong corporate earnings reports and encouraging valuations. Pacific ex-Japan (-0.25%) and Japanese (-0.19%) Equities saw a slight reduction in allocation. BlackRock continues to reduce their position in emerging markets (-0.10%) as a result of poor corporate earnings as well as experiencing a slower post-pandemic economic restart than its developed market counterparts. Allocation to Eurozone equities dropped by (-0.21%) and to U.K equities fell by (-0.85%) due to substandard valuations.

Non-Equity Sleeve 

The most significant changes to asset allocation were seen in the non-Equity sleeve. In the fixed income sleeve, BlackRock removed exposure to 1-3 yr treasuries and Emerging Markets Corporate (USD) out of the portfolio. BlackRock added a position to Floating Rate bonds +2.50% due to their zero duration risk and ability to benefit from a market where interest rates are high. They also add a position in Ultrashort credit +0.55%  as it serves as a cash proxy with lower duration. TIPS and Corporate high yield positions remain the same, whilst they minor reduction in allocation to U.S Aggregate bonds (-0.50%). In the alternative sleeve, we increase allocation to Gold +1.00% to increase the portfolio's protection against market volatility caused by the conflict in Ukraine. BlackRock reduces their position in property (-0.50%) due to its sensitivity to interest rate hikes whilst our commodity position remains untouched.
