DENVER, November 5, 2018—361 Capital, a leading boutique asset manager, today announced that the 361 Managed Futures Strategy Fund (AMFZX) was named Best ’40 Act -Managed Futures/CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor) during the 2018 HFM US Hedge Fund Performance Awards.
The Fund seeks to generate performance by employing a suite of systematic trading models that take positions (long, short, or cash) in U.S. equity index futures contracts.
“It is an honor to be recognized as the Best ’40 Act – Managed Futures Fund by HFM,” said 361 Capital CEO Tom Florence. “Although the managed futures category has been challenged over the past few years, I am pleased we have still been able to maintain strong performance versus our peers.”
The HFM US Hedge Fund Performance Awards celebrate those funds that have stood out in the competitive market over the past twelve months, honoring those that have outperformed their peers and demonstrated impressive growth last year. A panel of independent industry professionals appointed by HFMWeek selected the 361 Managed Futures Strategy Fund in the above-mentioned category based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative data, including annual performance, volatility, risk management and track record from July 2017 to June 2018.

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

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Futures prices may 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. Fund assets not invested in futures are invested primarily in investment-grade bonds. Bond prices generally fall when interest rates rise. 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.
The 361 Funds are distributed by IMST Distributors, LLC.
