Bailey McCann, Opalesque New York:
Denver-based 361 Capital has launched its Global Macro Opportunities Fund and will wrap a global macro strategy in the mutual fund structure. As Opalesque has previously reported, 361 Capital is already in the market with other liquid alternative funds.
The global macro fund will be managed by Blaine Rollins, who joined 361 Capital in 2011 and was formerly a portfolio manager at Janus. Rollins is known for his weekly 361 research note, which is widely distributed.
"We launched the Global Macro Opportunity Fund in part because we heard from advisors who wanted to be able to invest in the ideas that Blaine expresses in his weekly commentary," said Tom Florence, CEO of 361 Capital. "This is a great addition to our line-up as we continue to build out our roster of liquid alternative mutual funds for advisors and their clients."
The fund will maintain exposures to U.S. and foreign equity securities, fixed income securities, commodities and currencies. Like other funds in this strategy group, Rollins will make opportunistic investments across a range of asset classes and indices. The fund is expected to be classified in the Morningstar Multialternative category and its objective is to seek long-term positive absolute return.
The 361 Global Macro Opportunity Fund is available through the major platforms, including Schwab, Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, Pershing and others.
