The Riskalyze Report: Advisors Double Down on Rising Rates Bet

At the request of so many investment advisors, my friends at Riskalyze share the big trends in the assets going into and coming out of advisor portfolios every week. The underlying data is aggregated from hundreds of thousands of client accounts across the $44 billion and counting that advisors manage on the Riskalyze platform*. I hope we can uncover interesting trends for you each week…

Riskalyze

June 8th-15th

Winners (advisor flows TO these investments increased substantially):  
  1. Financials (VFH, IYF, FXO, XLF)
  2. Mega Cap (MGK)
  3. Alternatives/Hedged (JHAIX, HFXIX)

Losers (advisor flows FROM these investments increased substantially):

  1. Long Bond (EDV)
  2. High Yield (RYHGX)
  3. Hewlett Packard (HPQ)

Josh here – once again, the long bond trade is being blown out of advisor-managed accounts while an even more aggressive bet on the rise in rates – bank stocks – comes into vogue. I highlighted the bank stock breakout just as it was getting underway. Now it’s what all the cool kids are recommending.

Recall that we saw advisors loading up on floating rate funds two weeks ago and then blasting out of Treasury bond ETFs the week after. But the bet on banks is the most aggressive stance on rising rates yet.
