Equity Allocation Adapting to Market Changes

Balanced Fund Equity Allocation in Relation to Market Volatility (12/31/97 – 3/31/19)

Cboe Volatility Index® or VIX® Index® shows the market’s expectation of 30-day volatility.

Commentary & Literature

1Q19 Portfolio Commentary Highlights

  • Equities rebounded sharply during the quarter after a dramatic sell-off in late 2018.
  • While the Fund captured a significant portion of the quarter’s upside, it ultimately underperformed the Balanced Index.
  • We have a generally positive outlook for equity markets given the supportive low-rate environment but remain mindful of downside risks.
