Former Janus fund manager, Blaine Rollins, joins 361° Capital


Alternatives investment manager 361° Capital has appointed Blaine Rollins, CFA as managing director, senior portfolio manager and member of the Investment Committee.

As a member of the Investment Committee, Rollins will play a significant role in the managing of all portfolios but will have a particular focus on the firm’s first mutual fund, the 361° Absolute Alpha Fund. The 361° Absolute Alpha Fund is a multi-manager Long/Short equity fund that is designed with the intent to provide capital appreciation with low volatility and low correlation relative to the broad domestic and foreign equity markets. The fund is available in A shares (symbol AAFAX) that can be load waived for fee-based accounts and institutional I shares (symbol AAFIX) that require a $1 million minimum purchase.

“In addition to his extensive portfolio management experience, Blaine brings an array of capabilities that align exceptionally well with our investment approach” says Tom Florence, CEO. “He is an accomplished portfolio manager and has proven capabilities in quantitative research, hedging, and trading strategies. He will be a great addition to our team.”

Previously, Rollins was an executive vice president and portfolio manager with Janus Capital and was responsible for managing several mutual funds including the Janus Fund and the Janus Balanced Fund. “I am very excited to join 361° Capital,” says Rollins. “They are a very smart group of people and on the leading edge of alternative investing and research.”
