Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2015


The common theme underpinning the performance of a number of the strategies this quarter was concerns about a potential weakening of the global economy.

The largest detractors from performance were two of the equity strategies, while two of the commodity strategies were the largest contributors to performance.

The weighting to the equity-value strategy has increased in order to maintain the portfolio’s risk profile.
