361 Capital Launches Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund

DENVER, April 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 361 Capital, an award-winning* investment firm specializing in liquid alternative mutual funds, has launched the 361 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund (NASDAQ:ADMZX) and (NASDAQ:ADMQX).

The Fund, which is sub-advised by Los Angeles-based Analytic Investors, uses the same innovative strategy as the firm’s high-performing 361 Global Long/Short Equity Fund, but with a focus on domestic investments. Using a research-based low volatility approach, the new Fund seeks to achieve long-term 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 low-volatility 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.”

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

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. 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 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund is new and has a limited operating history. As a result, prospective investors have a short track record on which to base their future investment decisions. The 361 Global Long/Short Equity Fund invests within foreign investments that entail additional risk from adverse changes in currency exchange rates, lax regulation, and potential market instability.
