PMS cash holdings decline in June as market sentiment improves

Out of the total 133 strategies that disclosed cash for both May and June 2020, there were 58 strategies that reduced cash in June while there were 41 strategies that increased cash in June.

Cash holdings of several PMS schemes saw a decline in June against May as the market rallied even as uncertainty due to rising COVID-19 cases and a spike in geopolitical tensions persisted.

On the contrary, when the market is volatile or if there is strong uncertainty in the market, PMS strategies prefer to increase cash holding to minimise the risk of losses.
