2Q 2021 Performance Review
- Overweight allocations to Consumer Discretionary and Materials had a positive effect to relative results. The underweight to Utilities helped to offset some of the negative allocation decision results. Holding transactional cash was a drag on performance.
- Security selection in aggregate also had adverse effect.
- Aside from Utilities, sector returns were positive, with some stronger than others. Overweight the Consumer Discretionary was the biggest detractor within benchmark relative allocation effects followed by the underweight to Health Care. The underweight to the poor performing utilities sector helped to offset some of the negative results.
- Relative results were hurt by selection decisions.
- The overweight allocation to the Japanese Yen, which weakened versus the Euro during the quarter, hampered relative results as the Yen weakened versus the Euro.
