DENVER, March 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 361 Capital, an award-winning* investment firm specializing in liquid alternative mutual funds, has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to launch the 361 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund.
Sub-advised by Los Angeles-based Analytic Investors, the Fund intends to buy securities long that they believe will outperform the U.S. equity market, and intends to sell securities short they believe will underperform the U.S. equity market.
“We understand that many advisors want increased control over their asset allocation models and geographic exposure,” said Cliff Stanton, Chief Investment Officer of 361 Capital. “This Fund intends to provide our investors with a long/short strategy that’s focused on domestic markets, giving them the ability to tailor their portfolios.”

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The potential loss from a short sale is theoretically unlimited since the appreciation of the underlying asset also is theoretically unlimited.
The 361 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund’s risks include small-cap and mid-cap risk that such companies typically are more likely to be adversely affected than large-cap companies. Leverage can magnify the effects of changes in the value of the Fund’s investments and make the Fund more volatile. The use of derivatives could increase or decrease the Fund’s exposure to the risks of the underlying instrument. Using derivatives can have a leveraging effect and increase fund volatility. The Fund is classified as “non-diversified,” which means the Fund may invest a larger percentage of its assets in the securities of a smaller number of issuers than a diversified fund. The Fund will not have any operating history. As a result, prospective investors have no track record or history on which to base their future investment decisions.
