361 Capital Named Among Top Performing Managers by Pensions & Investments

DENVER, Sept 12, 2018—361 Capital, a leading boutique asset manager, today announced that it has been named a Top Performing Manager in the Domestic Blend Equity category by Pensions & Investments.

The 361 U.S. Small Cap Equity strategy was named to the list for its five-year gross and net performance. The strategy returned 16.87%, gross of fees, and 15.83%, net of fees, for the five- year period ending June 30, 2018, according to Morningstar Separate Account/CIT Fund Database.

Stemming from 30 years of research, the 361 U.S. Small Cap Equity strategy is based on a time-tested quantitative process that seeks to forecast changes in analyst estimates and corporate earnings announcements, which the firm believes drive stock prices. The 361 U.S. Small Cap Equity strategy was launched 21 years ago and is managed by 361’s Co-Chief Investment Officer John Riddle, CFA, and Managing Director and Portfolio Manager Mark Jaeger, CFA, CPA.

“We are excited to have the 361 U.S. Small Cap Equity’s performance recognized over a five-year period as being among the best in the Domestic Blend Equity category,” said John Riddle. “Investors increasingly are looking for an edge and we believe our approach, which is grounded in the science of behavioral psychology, can provide a compelling source of alpha over the long-term.”
