Empire Life Blog Emblem Portfolios in action



Key takeaways:  

  • Exposure to international equities was increased by 0.25%-1.5%
  • Exposure to US equities was decreased by 0.25%-1.5%
  • Our exposures to the other asset classes were rebalanced back to target


Tactical update – April 16, 2024

We modestly increased our exposure to international equities for two main reasons:

  1. At the moment, we’re observing that sector valuations in Europe appear attractive relative to the US, even taking into account the variation in index composition.
  2. Although the sentiment towards China is largely negative, there are some early indications of stabilization. If this trend continues, we expect our Chinese holdings to benefit directly, as will our positions in Europe, which is a key exporter to China.
