This quarter we have brought most of our equity allocations back towards neutral. Our negative view on bonds is counterbalanced by a positive view on alternatives.

Please note: our views may change at any time.

The overall structure of any portfolio is determined by its risk profile, and our views will influence your portfolio based on its default positioning: please see page 6 for details.
