GMO recently disclosed a significant allocation shift in GMO Benchmark-Free Allocation, cutting equity exposure from a 58% target weight on April 30, 2020, to a 25% target weight on May 15, 2020. The team made this cut based on its belief that the runup in developed equity markets from the March 23 bottom assumes a swift and orderly economic recovery, which the team believes is a less-than-guaranteed outcome. GMO Benchmark-Free Allocation's remaining equity exposure is concentrated in emerging-markets equities, which the team views as still significantly undervalued.
