DENVER—April 5, 2016—361 Capital, an award-winning* investment firm specializing in liquid alternative mutual funds, has launched the 361 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund (ADMZX and ADMQX).
Using a research-based low volatility approach, the new Fund, which is sub-advised by Los Angeles-based Analytic Investors, focuses on domestic investments and seeks to achieve longterm capital appreciation by participating in rising markets and preserving capital during downturns.
“Given continued uncertainty in the market, advisors are increasingly looking for strategies that can strengthen more traditional 60/40 portfolios,” said Cliff Stanton, 361 Capital’s Chief Investment Officer. “Long/short equity funds allow investors to participate in the market while limiting equity market risk. Additionally, by offering a long/short fund focused exclusively on the U.S. market, we’re giving advisors even more control over diversification and geographic exposure.”
Analytic Investors is a leader in exploiting the low volatility anomaly and is well-known for its research-based approach, thorough quantitative processes and advanced risk-control techniques.
“At Analytic, we’ve managed long/short portfolios for institutional clients for many years,” said Harin de Silva, President of Analytic Investors. “In our experience, a portfolio that is long lowvolatility stocks and short high-volatility stocks has the potential to deliver positive long-term total returns with less risk than the market. This is especially true in the current market environment which is characterized by high levels of market uncertainty.”
