  • Q1 2020 Performance Review

    12-Month Review

    • Stock selection was the primary cause of underperformance with negative relative results in Financials, Industrials, and Energy driving overall fund underperformance. While there were some positives from an overweight to Information Technology and strong stock selection within Communication Services, they were not enough to offset the negative stock selection results in the other sectors.
    • With the exception of Communication Services and Health Care, disappointing results in all sectors with the most notable being Energy, Information Technology, and Financials.

    3-Month Review

    • Underperformance was primarily due to stock selection with negative stock selection.
    • Underweights to Consumer Staples and Utilities along with an overweight to Financials detracted, overweights to Information Technology and Communication Services benefitted. This led to a negligible impact from sector allocation decisions.
    • Holdings in Financials detracted significantly.
    • Energy stocks, although a relatively small allocation in the fund, had a large negative impact on performance as some holdings declined tremendously in the quarter.
    • On the positive side, Communication Services holdings declined by less than the benchmark and lessened the underperformance versus the benchmark.
    • Smaller cap names did worse than larger cap names. This also had an impact on the fund’s relative performance. The Fund was underweighted to the largest part of the value index, which also did the best, and overweighted the mid and smaller cap names, which performed the worst.

    Current Positioning

    • Positioning generally does not change much quarter to quarter or even annually in terms of sector exposures and other portfolio characteristics.
    • Currently, the Fund’s overweights in Communications Services, Information technology, and Financials are consistent with positioning in recent quarters – as are the underweights to Health Care, Consumer Staples, Real Estate, and Utilities.
