Proposed Changes to Your Portfolio:

In Brief...

Over the month of May, we have been closely monitoring the performance of our new portfolios. We advised changes to our Tactical Portfolios at the very start of this month to take advantage of the unexpected positive market growth we experienced at the beginning of 2019. Consequently, we advised to sell a small proportion of UK Equities to take some of this profit and increase our diversification and exposure to less risky assets such as Bonds.

We advised to increase Gilts across all portfolios and since this move, Gilts have been the second highest performing sector and UK Equity has been one of the poorest performing sectors. We chose not to increase Technology weightings, despite the low exposure in our Adventurous Portfolios, as we are expecting further volatility from the sector. Recent high profile US flotation Lyft has since traded below the IPO price and other (so called) ‘unicorns’ due to float this year include Airbnb and Pinterest – the big question is at what valuations.

It is too early to draw any major conclusions from the new V19B portfolio performance, especially with the market downturn in the last month. However, it is clear that all portfolios are performing as expected and we are still positioned cautiously with further volatility expected over the summer months.
