361 Capital launches domestic long/short equity fund


361 Capital, aninvestment firm specialising in liquid alternative mutual funds, has launched the 361 Domestic Long/Short Equity Fund.

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,” says 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 US 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," says 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.”
