RAAX turns cautiously optimist and allocates to a diversified portfolio of real asset investments, including commodities, gold, natural resource equities, REITs, MLPs and global infrastructure.
RAAX remains convinced that we are in the midst of a bear market and continues to seek shelter in an ultra-conservative portfolio of U.S. Treasury bills and gold bullion.
The Fund remained defensive in June, maintaining its 24% allocation to stocks and a 76% allocation to bonds. Its asset allocation mix remained largely unchanged, though there were notable indicator changes.
Traditional trend following had little chance of getting defensive early into the recent sell-off. Given the market’s tendency for strong rebounds after major sell-offs, is it better to wait than react?
RAAX continues to measure the risks within the real asset markets. If conditions materially improve, it will look for an opportunity to re-invest; if risks remain high, it will remain defensive.
