Strathclyde returns 23%, completes first phase of strategy shift

first_imgAsset allocation against Step 1 targetsThe pension fund used proceeds from equity sales to fund new multi-asset credit mandates run by Babson Capital and Oak Hill Advisors, an emerging market debt portfolio run by Ashmore Investment Management, and investment in an Alcentra direct lending fund and Babson global private loan funds.It also amended its PIMCO absolute return strategy (PARS) mandate to move to a new PARS product, and sold nominal gilts that helped fund an increase in exposure to credit strategies.The maximum capacity of the fund’s direct investment portfolio, which typically invests in illiquids, was increased to 5% of the fund’s net asset value.During the past financial year Strathclyde agreed £120m in commitments for its direct investment portfolio, including £40m to a UK mid-market lending fund run by Pemberton.Renewable energy (30%), infrastructure (25%), and credit (20%) make up 75% of the overall direct investment portfolio.The total investment return of 23.1% represents the fund’s eighth consecutive year of investment growth.Average annual return over the last year amounts to 11.8% per annum, ahead of the strategic benchmark’s return of 10.9%. The actuary’s long-term investment assumption is 4.9% per annum. The UK’s largest public pension fund returned 23.1% in the year to the end of March, driven mainly by strong equity market performance.The return partly offset the impact of the Strathclyde Pension Fund having implemented the first phase of a new strategic asset allocation.The Scottish fund grew in assets by £3.6bn to reach £19.7bn as at 31 March 2017.Equity portfolios were the most significant contributors to the fund’s strong absolute performance, while property holdings contributed most on a relative basis. Its equity investments returned 18.4%, according to figures in its unaudited annual report for 2016-17.The Scottish local government pension scheme also benefitted from sterling’s depreciation in the wake of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, as the majority of its holdings are overseas and their sterling value increased significantly.Strathclyde is shifting away from equities in favour of a more broadly diversified strategy including private debt, emerging market debt, global credit, and UK infrastructure, the latter with a focus on renewable energy. The first phase of the asset allocation shift was completed over the past year. Changes included reducing the fund’s exposure to public equity and implementing revised regional and managed public equity allocations.Its equity allocation fell from 72.9% to 68.6% as at the end of March. This is above the target level of 62.5% as a result of the strong performance in the equity markets. It is planning to reduce its equity allocation to 52.5% over two stages, and may in future consider further cuts.It also increased its exposure to short-term “enhanced yield” strategies, from 6.6% to 8.3%. This was below the target of 15%.last_img read more

The best way to stay up to date on the current lines is to become a BetQL subscriber.Value Bet of the Week: Detroit Lions (+10) vs Los Angeles RamsThe top value bet of the week is a scary one, with the Lions coming in as huge 10-point home underdogs to the Rams. The Rams have established themselves as one of the favorites in the NFC while the Lions are sputtering following a bad Thanksgiving day loss to the Bears. The line movement is in favor of the Rams after moving from -9 to -10, but the Rams have actually been one of the worst teams to bet on as favorites this season; going 1-5-1 against the spread over their past seven games. The Lions also have the added benefit of hosting a West Coast team traveling east for the dreaded 1 p.m. ET kickoff. WEEK 13 NFL PICKS: Straight up | ATS Largest Public Favorite: Indianapolis Colts (-4) at Jacksonville JaguarsThe Jaguars are collapsing before our eyes following their meltdown in Buffalo, and it’s no surprise that the largest public favorites this week are the surging Colts. While the Colts are an attractive option here with the Jaguars on a seven-game losing streak, it’s tempting to fade the public and side with Jacksonville as four-point home underdogs, as they’ve gone 5-2 against the spread during their losing streak. Both teams are dealing with major injuries and suspensions, so be sure to check the BetQL injury page to get injury updates before you make a decision in this game. Sharps Favorite of the Week: San Francisco 49ers (+10) at Seattle SeahawksWhile there’s some good value on the Lions-Rams line this week, the big bettors are looking to pile on the 49ers as they head up to Seattle to face the Seahawks as 10-point road dogs. This series has been dominated by the Seahawks, as they are 12-2 ATS against the Niners over the past seven years, which is likely why they are currently seeing almost 60 percent of public bets. However, some big early-week money come has in on the 49ers, which has created one of the larger money edges that you’ll see at 42 percent. I expect this edge to tighten up closer to Sunday, but for now you have to consider San Francisco in this spot.  Largest Line Movement: Buffalo Bills (+4) at Miami Dolphins The experts from BetQL are here with a look at Week 13 NFL odds and gambling trends on four key games.
