Reach Research – Quarterly Update

Overarching view: In our last quarterly update in July we pulled back our exposure to Asia / Emerging Markets and Europe, whilst increasing our weight towards the U.S. Pleasingly, the market conditions played out exactly the way we had anticipated – U.S. equities outperformed their global counterparts (as the U.S. economy continues to outperform), U.S. dollar appreciated, and Emerging Markets experienced a major sell-off. This is reflected in our solid performance for 3-months to 30 Sept-18. Whilst we are inclined towards low portfolio turnover, we also believe we need to remain dynamic and responsive in what is clearly a highly uncertain period in markets. Having said that, we continue to see more of the same in the short term hence we have left our strategies unchanged. The number one question on our radar is when to increase exposure to EM equities.
