The Strategy section describes the underlying strategy weights. Here you can see that Swedish stocks had on average 45% share of the portfolio while the target was 40%.

The Attribution section then shows the results from the Brinson attribution analysis describing how allocation decisions (Timing), security selections (Selection) have contributed to the overall Attribution (different between the contribution of benchmark vs the position). Even though, the portfolio under-performed against its benchmark, the Swedish stocks were an exception (total attribution +2.54%). It was especially the selected stocks that had the positive effect on the attribution (+2.47%).
