French term or phrase: 20% du portefeuille sur des titres flotteur

I'm translating an asset-management report from French (France) to English (United Kingdom) and am not 100% sure about one phrase. Please see the full sentence below for context:

"Les instruments monétaires (Certificats de dépôt, Billets de trésorerie, Neu CP etc.) représentent désormais plus de 20% du portefeuille sur des titres flotteur de maturité proche de 2 ans."

The "sur" is throwing me a little. My current though is "...account for more than 20% of the portfolio, as floating securities with a maturity of close to 2 years", but I'm really not sure. Could anyone help please?

Many thanks in advance!

neutral  philgoddard: Maybe, but why does it say "sur des" and not "de"? And it's THE portfolio.
