Commentary & Literature

2Q18 Portfolio Commentary Highlights

  • The Fund outperformed the Balanced Index during the second quarter.
  • Outperformance in the equity sleeve was driven by strong security selection, particularly in consumer staples. Outperformance in the fixed income sleeve was largely a result of our corporate credit allocation.
  • While the risk of a trade war is top of mind, we remain optimistic for equities, believing that tax reform, business reinvestment and strong consumer spending should continue to present a favorable backdrop.
