Fund Strategy

The 361 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund, sub-advised by Analytic Investors, seeks to deliver an equity-like return with significantly less variability by investing across domestic equity markets, taking advantage of the low volatility anomaly by going long lower volatility stocks and shorting higher volatility stocks, and dynamically allocating to high predicted alpha stocks.

Why Invest in the Fund

Enhance Core Allocations

Seeks to bolster traditional elements of a core allocation (stocks and bonds) enhancing the portfolio’s overall risk/return profile.

Growth While Managing Downside Risk

Quantitative approach that pursues equity-like returns with significantly less volatility than the benchmark.

Alpha Seeking

Structural elements combined with dynamic factor models seeks meaningful alpha from both long and short exposures.

Investment Process

Portfolios are constructed with a 100% long exposure to stocks that have lower predicted betas and positive predicted alphas. Each portfolio has short exposure ranging from 25% to 35% consisting of stocks with higher predicted betas, and lower predicted alphas. This results in a portfolio that has roughly 70% net exposure to its respective index, but with a targeted beta of 0.4-0.6.

Returns include reinvestment of dividends and income.

See Glossary of Terms >

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The potential loss from a short sale is theoretically unlimited since the appreciation of the underlying asset also is theoretically unlimited. Frequent trading by the Fund may reduce returns and increase the number of taxable transactions. Concentration of its portfolio in relatively few issuers may make the Fund more volatile than a diversified fund.
