DENVER—September 30, 2016—361 Capital, a leading boutique asset manager offering institutional-quality alternative strategies to institutions, investment advisors and their clients, announced today that it has been recognized for its outstanding industry contribution in Alternatives at the Second Annual WealthManagement.com Industry Awards.
The WealthManagement.com Industry Awards recognize companies and organizations that provide exceptional leadership and support for financial advisor success. An independent panel of industry experts selected 2016 award winners in more than 60 individual categories.
As a boutique asset manager who specializes in alternative investments, 361 Capital recognized that advisors sometimes struggle with allocating the time and resources required to fully understand alternatives and their nuances – especially if they represent less than 25% of an overall portfolio. To help advisors and their clients better understand the role alternatives play, 361 developed educational materials around “The New Core Allocation: Long/Short Equity,” which recommends that Long/Short Equity be considered part of a core allocation versus a satellite allocation. The response to this initiative has been overwhelmingly positive because it directly addresses the questions advisors have around implementing certain alternatives, including from which asset classes to fund allocations.
A portion of the proceeds from the WealthManagement.com 2016 Industry Awards event will be donated to the Foundation for Financial Planning, an organization devoted to providing pro bono financial planning to the underserved, primarily by providing grants to connect those in need with those willing to provide financial planning.
