Introducing the Island Light Sector Rotation Portfolio

The Island Light Sector Rotation portfolio was updated for the month of June as part of our regular rebalancing.

The strategy, which employs a new algorithm for capturing market momentum in an optimized portfolio of US sectors, is the latest in a series of innovative dynamic portfolio models offered by Island Light.

For the month of June, we increased our exposure to the U.S. financial and healthcare sectors, eliminated our positions in the consumer staples and technology sectors, and reduced exposure to the utilities and consumer discretionary sectors.

We remain overweight utilities and consumer discretionary sectors relative to the S&P index weights.

The following table reflects the performance of our strategy, the S&P 500 Index (SPX) and the 9 sector ETFs that comprise our investment universe, through May 30, 2014.
