The 361 Global Managed Futures Strategy Fund Class I shares was rated 5 stars Overall and for the 3-year period among 95 funds in the Managed Futures funds category. Ratings reflect fee waivers in effect; in their absence, ratings may have been lower. The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weight is 100% for a three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns. © 2018 Morningstar. All rights reserved. See Glossary of Terms >

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Futures prices can be very volatile. The small margin required for futures contracts magnifies the effect of market volatility and allows the loss from a contract potentially to exceed the Fund’s initial investment. With short contracts, the loss is theoretically unlimited since the appreciation of the underlying asset also is theoretically unlimited. Foreign investment entails additional risk from adverse changes in currency exchange rates, tax regulation, and potential market instability. 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.

You should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing.

Commentary

Executive Summary

Within the wide variety of programs in the category, our strategy is one of two single manager, short-term counter trend funds. Our models seek to exploit overreactions in equity markets and profit from the short-term mean reversion often observed following outsized moves (up or down). We expect the Fund to perform well in choppy or ‘noisy’ markets, while being more muted in steadilyrising markets. With the VIX again below its long-term average, and noise at low levels for most of the quarter, the Fund performed in line with expectations.
